In August 2014, EKEO appointed Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong Limited to undertake the Planning and Engineering Study for the Development at Kowloon Bay Action Area (KBAA) – Feasibility Study ("the Study") to review and formulate feasible development options taking into account various planning considerations including the connectivity between KBAA and the surrounding area. The area would have great potential to become a new and vibrant development node in Kowloon East. The existing government facilities currently occupying the KBAA site are proposed to be relocated to release some 6.5 hectares of government land for the comprehensive development. KBAA has the potential to supply about half a million m2 of additional commercial/office floor space.
The proposed Preliminary Outline Development Plan (PODP) has been formulated, with consultations conducted with the Kwun Tong District Council (Consultation document (Chinese only)) in March 2016 and Harbourfront Commission (Consultation document) in June 2016. In light of the feedback obtained from the consultation exercise, detailed technical assessments are being conducted for formulating the Recommended Outline Development Plan (RODP), which will undergo further consultation later. The Study is anticipated for completion in early 2021.
The Study Area of the KBAA is shown above.
