New Tunnel Being Constructed Underneath Hong Kong Waterfront

Quote:
Underway since the 1990s, the Central and Wan Chai Reclamation project has gradually extended the north shore of Hong Kong Island into Victoria Harbour. Doing so has created more land for waterfront development from Sheung Wan to Causeway Bay, allowing several building and transportation projects to move forward. One of them is the Central–Wan Chai Bypass, a 4.5-kilometre dual three-lane highway tunnel running between Sheung Wan in the west to Fortress Hill in the east. Designed to alleviate traffic congestion along the Gloucester Road-Harcourt Road-Connaught Road central corridor, the strategic road will connect to the Island Eastern Corridor expressway at the northeastern shore of Hong Kong Island.

Last post nears for GPO building in offices move
July 21, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt





Hong Kong’s post office headquarters in Central is set to be demolished to make way for office buildings as part of a transformation of the city’s prime waterfront space.

The General Post Office building, opened in 1976, will be torn down and its contents moved to a new location in Kowloon Bay, the government’s Commerce and Economic Development Bureau said at a panel meeting in the city’s legislature on Friday.

The new eight-storey building will be near Kai Tak Cruise Terminal and cost HK$1.7 billion.

“The proposal has two aims. We hope it will be an opportunity for Hongkong Post to consolidate work from different departments to enhance its operational efficiency, and secondly, to meet the demands of a shortage of A-grade office space in Central,” Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Edward Yau Tang-wah said.

Postal facilities tied to Central district will be kept in the area however.

The redevelopment is part of a HK$12 billion plan for eight key sites to transform the Central harbourfront in the heart of the city to provide upmarket office space, a large pedestrian deck, public space and a mix of hotel and retail facilities. The Town Planning Board approved the outline for the General Post Office site in September.

Some of Hong Kong’s famous dried seafood vendors face uncertain future under HK$1.3 billion redevelopment plan
Demolition of dilapidated buildings in Sai Ying Pun to open up more public space will affect decades-old businesses
July 28, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt





A cluster of dilapidated buildings in Sai Ying Pun is set to be torn down, opening up more public space for the community as part of the Urban Renewal Authority’s latest redevelopment project.

But the HK$1.3 billion plan will displace a number of dried seafood sellers who have done business in the neighbourhood for decades.

On the northwestern tip of Hong Kong Island, the 12,000 sq ft site is home to a group of low-rise buildings built between 1959 and 1978 near Des Voeux Road West – also known as “dried seafood street”.

Next to the site, a small public playground with a single swing, a slide and a few benches is surrounded by residential blocks and accessible only via small lanes.

The URA’s head of planning and design Wilfred Au Chun-ho said: “We have two purposes for this project: first, to improve living conditions; and second ... to enhance connectivity by widening the access to the playground.”

The project will affect 110 households and 13 ground-floor shops, most of which house dried seafood retailers.

By 2027, the new site will provide 165 new flats and about 4,000 sq ft of commercial and retail floor area, along with an additional 1,500 sq ft of open space.

The URA plans for the commercial buildings facing the playground to be only about one to two floors high, while lanes connected to the playground will be widened for improved access.

Sai Ying Pun, first settled by the British military, has been a low-key residential area made up of traditional shops and small back lanes. But, with the extension of the MTR line, the area has become increasingly gentrified, with bars and art galleries setting up shop.
