The Kwun Tong Town Centre project is one of the redevelopment projects announced by the Land Development Corporation in 1998. Occupying a site area of more than 500,000 square feet, this multi-billion-dollar project will be the largest single project undertaken by the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) affecting about 1,653 property interests and about 3,139 people. The URA commenced the statutory town planning approval process for the project in March 2007.
Because of the large scale and complexity of the project, the URA will work closely with the local community to ensure that the views of all important stakeholders are fully taken into consideration in the project planning process.
The Master Layout Plan of Yuet Wah Street site prepared by the URA was approved with conditions by Town Planning Board (TPB) on 19 December 2008. The Master Layout Plan of the Main Site (DAs 2, 3, 4&5) was approved with conditions by the TPB on 18 December 2015.
A Planning Application has been submitted to the TPB on 2 June 2017 for the revised layout of DAs 4&5, and has been approved by the TPB on 9 February 2018.
