Revitalisation as a Vibrant Retail and Leisure Destination

TOWNLAND was appointed to undertake a study to develop a strategy and concept plans for the revitalization of the Causeway Bay Shopping and Entertainment District. A second goal was to address existing environmental degradation and traffic congestion and improve environmental quality and amenity. The third goal was to develop a distinctive local identity for the area. The strategic objectives were to promote schemes for the consistent of pedestrian friendly streets throughout the Study Area; to progressively orchestrate building forms so that they provide more protection to users; and to develop vibrant themes to announce and define legible nodes of the public realm.

TOWNLAND undertook a two stage study of the area. The Study examined the various factors which identify the area as a unique district together with the functional and physical opportunities and constraints for its enhancement. The implications of Government’s plan for the wider district were also investigated. As with many of Hong Kong's districts, increasing traffic and its related disbenefits are major factors affecting the enjoyment of the area.  Whilst there are significant new developments within the districts, substantial areas remain ripe for urban renewal. The Study was intended to provide a basis for successful public-private investment and activity in the District and ensure its sustainable development over the following decade.
