The Project aims to re-structure and re-plan the Scheme area through redevelopment and integration of other urban renewal initiatives to achieve wider planning gains for the community.
The key planning objectives and proposals of the Project includes:
- Non in-situ reprovisioning of the existing G/IC facilities along Hau Wong Road to minimise disruption to GIC facilities and services; and to optimize land potential under “One site multiple uses” principle to provide additional space for community to meet community needs.
- Re-planning of land uses to create over 10,450 sq.m. of at-grade landscaped diversified space to bring greenery and activity space in the core area for public enjoyment.
- Enhance the strategic gateway location of Lung Tong area by creating a gateway square between the Lung Tong area and Kai Tak Development Area (KTDA);
- Enhance local historical characters by preserving urban grid street pattern and historic buildings to retain street ambience, with on-street small shops design in new development to accentuate local cultural and dining characters;
- Provide underground public vehicle park to alleviate district’s parking demand and create opportunity for pavement widening with removal of some on-street parking spaces;
- Replanning of traffic and pedestrian network to create comfortable walking environment; and integration of revitalization and rehabilitation works under separate urban renewal actions to enhance connectivity and walkability of the area;
The Project may also include other facilities and uses as required by the TPB.
