TOWNLAND was commissioned to lead a Multidisciplinary Team to prepare a Technical Study for a Site on Lai Yip Street near the Kwun Tong Waterfront. The Study is to take forward the 2017 Policy Agenda which called for a review of the future use of the Study Area and to study the possibility of providing space for arts, culture and creative industries uses.
The Study process involved examining suitable arts, culture and creative industries uses and optimal permissible development potential, and preparing a Recommended Design for the Study Area with supporting technical assessments including a Traffic and Transport Impact Assessment and a Visual Appraisal. As part of the Study, a sewer diversion proposal and assessment on buffer distance for vehicular/ chimney emission was prepared.
TOWNLAND was responsible for all land use planning aspects and the coordination of the Study Team for inputs to the development of the Schematic Options.
