HONG KONG (09 March, 2022) – Ensuring inclusion and access to all, embodying Hong Kong’s societal values and global identity, safeguarding Hong Kong’s heritage for future generations and committing to sustainability are among some of the ideas suggested in a new Urban Land Institute (ULI) report on how Site 3 of the New Central Harbourfront (Site 3) in Hong Kong can best serve the local community.
Entitled Central Harbourfront Site 3: Design Principles for the Public Good, the report offers recommendations for Site 3’s development so that it can better serve the public interest while balancing its commercial viability and attractiveness.
“Site 3 will not only create one of the most important landmarks to Hong Kong’s Central Business District, it also has the potential to shape the future development of commercial real estate in Hong Kong and beyond,” commented David Faulkner, president of the ULI Asia Pacific region. “The Design Principles for Site 3 draws upon the expertise and creative ideas of architecture firms, arts organizations, academia and civic groups to help the successful tenderer combine commercial and public interests seamlessly, thereby setting a new benchmark for public-centric commercial property development.”
The report outlines the following ten design principles for Site 3’s development:
