Territory-wide Study on Underground Space Development in the Urban Areas of Hong Kong

Territory-wide Study on Underground Space Development in the Urban Areas of Hong Kong – Feasibility Study

The 2013 Policy Address highlights that underground space is a viable source of long-term land supply and stresses the need to further explore the potential of developing underground space in the urban areas of Hong Kong, including studying the possibility of linking up the underground spaces of existing or planned structures.

To explore the potential of developing underground space in the urban areas, we commenced a study on the “Territory-wide Study on Underground Space Development in the Urban Areas of Hong Kong – Feasibility Study” in December 2013. The study will review local cases and overseas examples to identify suitable measures and implementation strategies to facilitate underground space development in the urban areas of Hong Kong, establish territory-wide opportunities for underground space development, and develop conceptual schemes to demonstrate opportunities for space creation and connectivity enhancement and highlight any possible development constraints/issues in implementation. The study will also review specific topics related to underground space development, and consult relevant stakeholders.
