The Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok districts are densely populated with a high proportion of aged buildings, many of which have exceeded the development density permitted under the existing planning and legislation limits, thereby creating immense challenges to urban renewal. The Urban Renewal Authority (URA) has recently completed the District Study for Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok.
The Study has developed three versions of Master Urban Renewal Concept Plans with varying development intensity. It has also identified in the two districts five urban renewal opportunity areas with different planning themes and development nodes intended to be sizeable district landmarks with high-rise developments.
Moreover, the Study has proposed new planning tools to step up the urban renewal momentum. While this Study is basically a planning study, some engineering aspects such as traffic and sewage have also been preliminarily assessed.
The objective of the discussion forum is to raise the awareness and gather views/suggestions from members of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) in Hong Kong on this ambitious and challenging redevelopment initiative
