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. With a possible Environmentally Friendly Linkage System (EFLS) depot and a station being considered in KBAA, 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 additional commercial/office floor space of about 0.48 million m2.
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) and in June 2016. In light of the feedback obtained from the consultation exercise, detailed technical assessments would be conducted for formulating the Recommended Outline Development Plan (RODP), which would be further consulted at later stage of the Study. The Study is anticipated to complete in 2019.
The Study Area of the KBAA is shown above.
