In response to the Policy Address 2018 and 2019 (PAs) by the Chief Executive, the URA is invited to identify one or two clusters of Civil Servants’ Co-operative Building Society (CBS) Scheme sites suitable for high-density development as pilot sites, and explore the redevelopment mode in accordance with the usual project implementation approach adopted by the URA. The Project aims to fulfill the objectives of the PAs, to increase housing supply by full utilisation of the development potential of the cluster of CBS sites. According to the directive under the PAs, some of the land within the Project is to be earmarked for subsidised housing development upon approval.
Whilst meeting the objectives as listed in the PAs, the Project also seeks to improve the overall environment through redevelopment in accordance with the Urban Renewal Strategy.
The proposed development of the Project includes:
The northern part will be developed by the URA, whilst the southern part will be earmarked for public housing development.
Not less than 2,150 sq.m. GFA will be reserved to provide appropriate Government, Institution or Community facilities to meet the community needs. Not less than 400 sq.m. of open space for public use at reasonable hours will be provided.
