Abstract:  The land of the previous Kai Tak Airport has been idled without much noticeable work activities being done since its removal after July 1998. This is not exactly true. In fact, there were still quite a number of minor works being carried out stage by stage in order to prepare for the final kick-off of the forth-coming developments.

The first major project that came up on the ground of Kai Tak appeared in 2010, when the contract for the construction of the Cruise Terminal being signed. Soon after that, it came the MTR Shatin Central Link project with works commenced in 2013.

In the years that followed Kai Tak got much busier for the launching of many other projects, which included the improvement of the Kai Tak River, the Truck Road No. 2 and the Central Kowloon Link projects, as well as in a much larger-scale, the Kai Tak Sport Park. Not to mention there are more than twenty building projects for public housing, private residential and commercial developments that started construction soon after 2010.

This seminar series contains 2 sessions, Part 1 and 2. Our speaker, Ir Raymond Wong, will give an overview of Kai Tak developments since 2000. Below is the detail of the seminar series.

session part 1 Seminar (6/9/2022)– a thorough description of what had happened in Kai Tak since the removal of the airport up to 2015.

session part 2 Seminar (20/9/22) – ditto, all major projects being done or still in work progress after 2015 till now.
