New Wan Chai North Point Harbourfront: An Urban Harbourfront Reconnecting People to the Water
The Wan Chai North and North Point harbourfront is a valuable stretch of reclaimed land centrally located in the Victoria Harbour, presenting a unique opportunity to ‘re-connect’ people to the waterfront. The reclamation and construction works are set for gradual completion from 2017 onwards. To get prepared for realizing an attractive, connected, vibrant and sustainable new harbourfront for public enjoyment, the Planning Department commissioned the “Urban Design Study for the Wan Chai North and North Point Harbourfront Areas” (the Study) in January 2015, to guide the detailed planning and design for this area.
