The Hong Kong Government is inviting non-committal expressions of interest for the development of the Tourism Node at Kai Tak.
The Node is a major component of the Kai Tak Fantasy project, which encompasses a visionary plan to develop the former runway tip and its adjoining areas into a world-class tourism, entertainment and leisure hub.
The 5.93 hectare site will comprise commercial/office/hotel uses and entertainment and leisure facilities, with about 230,000 sq metres total maximum gross floor area.
“The Tourism Node will be an attractive destination for all. We are looking for creative and viable proposals to realise the vision of Kai Tak Fantasy and bring the greatest benefit to society at large,” said the Energising Kowloon East Office Head Brenda Au.
She noted that it would be prudent to leverage on the financial viability of the commercial portion, to draw up a land use mix capable of generating sufficient revenue to keep the Tourism Node running.
“The Tourism Node will create a synergy effect with the adjoining Kai Tak Cruise Terminal and the planned hotel and residential developments nearby,” Ms Au added.
Ideas and suggestions received through the exercise may be used by the Government for reference in formulating the detailed development requirements for future land tender.
Interested parties can submit their proposal to the office before December 8. Click here for details.
