Tseung Kwan O

Approved for construction in 1982, Tseung Kwan O is the seventh new town in Hong Kong. While initially planned to house 175,000 people, the Government subsequently decided in 1987 and 1988 to expand to eventually house 445,000 residents. Ultimately, the targeted population is 480,000.

The new town is built mainly by reclaiming Tseung Kwan O Bay starting in 1983 and forming platforms on both sides of a long narrow inlet.

Luckily, this new town has planned waterfront promenades across most areas.

As I approached the older part of the "new town", I noticed development is approaching the waterfront. There have been concerns that this place is too dense and crowded.

At least the buildings closer to the waterfront are not as tall.

I'm back at Tseung Kwan O Station.
