Development Constraints & Opportunities

Development Opportunities

  • Being located in urban Kowloon, the 40-hectare platform within the Study Site can provide land for housing, commercial and community facilities to meet territorial demand and the residents' needs.
  • The ARQ has been in operation since 1956. Such unique history will be respected and the distinct landform will be utilized for recreational and cavern development.
  • There is a visual corridor between the Tai Sheung Tok summit and Jordan Valley which should be protected. The benches of the rock faces are good locations for enjoying the spectacular view of East Kowloon and the Victoria Harbour.
  • The ARQ site upon full rehabilitation will be a major landscape resource in urban Kowloon. The existing landform of the Study Site could also be enhanced through greening to create a green and liveable community.
