Hong Kong Under Construction 2020 - Kowloon Developments

On this page, we will cover the following construction projects :

  • Mongkok East station / Sai Yee Street
  • Mongkok Road pedestrian bridge
  • L.Living 23
  • 39-53 Tai Kok Tsui Road
  • Aquila Square Mile
  • Kowloon City Plaza
  • Sai Yee Street

    Several buildings belonging to various government departments on Sai Yee Street in Mongkok have been demolished to make way for a tower of up to 320m with sky gardens on refuge floors. The study site covers almost 4 hectares although the government buildings cover about 1.2 hectares only, with the key development aspects being more grade A offices, improved walkability to neighbouring streets, and community facilities for the elderly demographic.

    Kowloon City Plaza

    Kowloon City Plaza was completed in 1993 and was popular with the airport crowd, enjoying meals here and some last minute shopping before boarding their flights at Kai Tak. The airport's move in 1998 as well as the opening of Festival Walk with direct MTR access nearby. The Town Planning Board approved a rezoning plan in 2020 to redevelop the mall into 2 31-storey residential buildings.

    A unique feature of the mall is its rooftop parking lot, which offers commanding views of the far shorter buildings in neighbouring streets. The face of Kowloon City has changed since Kai Tak closed with piecemeal redevelopments, new pencil towers opening, and a new MTR station coming shortly.
