Project Status

The Government Gazette for the commencement of the Development Scheme (“the Project”) was first published on 7 October 2022 and a freezing survey was conducted in the project area on the same day.

According to section 25 of URAO, the Urban Renewal Authority (“URA”) had submitted a draft Development Scheme Plan (“DSP”) of the Project, including the Stage 1 and Stage 2 of Social Impact Assessment (“SIA”) Reports to the Town Planning Board (“TPB”) for consideration.

On 3 March 2023, the TPB has published the draft DSP under section 5 of Town Planning Ordinance for public inspection at the venues specified in the Government Gazette.  On 15 September 2023, the TPB conducted a hearing to consider the representations and comments received on the draft DSP during the public inspection period.  After the hearing, the TPB has decided to propose amendment to the draft DSP, and has published the proposed amendment on 13 October 2023.  On 15 December 2023, the TPB conducted a further hearing to consider the further representations received on the proposed amendment to the draft DSP during the public inspection period. 

The Chief Executive in Council (“CE in C”) approved the draft DSP of the Project on 28 May 2024 and published the decision in Gazette on 7 June 2024.  The approved DSP No. S/K22/URA1/2 of the Project was published on the same day. 

The URA will accord to prevailing policies to issue acquisition offers and compensation to the affected owners and tenants.

Project Programme

Project commenced in October 2022. 

Targeted completion by 2033.

Proposed Redevelopment

Under a planning-led approach, the Project aims to rationalize land use for holistic planning of the area to enable more efficient land use and to bring planning gains to the local community.   

The key planning objectives and proposals of the Project includes:

  • Provision of a waterfront promenade of about 20m wide along the Ma Tau Kok waterfront for public enjoyment. The proposed waterfront promenade will be connecting with the adjoining planned waterfront promenade / waterfront developments at the Kai Tak Development Area (KTDA)  , thus enabling a continuous waterfront at the Kowloon East area.
  • Reinforce the waterfront ambience and promote vibrancy by creating an at-grade waterfront plaza and provide a 2-storey commercial belt connecting to the waterfront promenade.
  • Restructuring and re-planning of existing land uses to provide building setbacks from To Kwa Wan Road to allow sufficient space to align with Government’s planned road widening works.
  • Replanning of traffic and pedestrian network to create comfortable walking environment and enhance connectivity.
  • Provision of about 1,000 sq.m. non-domestic GFA for Government, Institution or Community (GIC) uses to bring more planning gains to the community.

The Project may also include other facilities and uses as required or approved by the TPB.
