The West Kowloon Cultural District is one of the largest, most ambitious development projects in Asia, stretching across 40 hectares of reclaimed land. It aims to create an interactive and collaborative cultural quarter for Hong Kong blending art, education and open spaces.
Providing 23 hectares of public space with two kilometres of harbourfront promenade, the mixed-use precinct will feature facilities to host worldclass exhibitions, performances and arts and cultural events, as well as supporting commercial elements.
Urbis was engaged to offer expert advice on retail, dining and entertainment (RDE) provisions in the precinct development plan.
Urbis provided recommendations on the distribution and layout of RDE under various design scenarios, as well as turnover and income estimates for the project. These were crucial inputs to assess the financial feasibility of the precinct master plan.
