Sham Shui Po is not a major redevelopment zone. Rather, much of the activity is concentrated along the water in the new reclamation areas.

The key urban renewal projects in that part of town are in Shek Kip Mei. The largest barrier to a grand project in Sham Shui Po is the income profile. A redeveloped estate simply won't fetch very high price because the district is a low income area. Hence all the construction activity is concentrated along the waterfront, more expensive, properties.

But what about Kwun Tong? Isn't Kwun Tong a low income area as well?

Kwun Tong is not as poor as Sham Shui Po. In fact, Sham Shui Po is a major settlement area for new immigrants from China, many of which do not have the skills to integrate into the society and have to work low-paying jobs.

Kwun Tong, on the other hand, started off as an industrial zone, whereas Sham Shui Po has gone residential quite long ago.

Kwun Tong is industrial. True that is not as poor as Sham Shui Po but the place still have lower to lower-middle class living there. But after 5 years, I can't imagine what this district will look like.

Kwun Tong is not just an industrial district. The industrial area is only south of the MTR to the water. The area to the north of the MTR is a bustling residential and commercial area (even before apm opened).

The redevelopment is only for a small area called Yue Man Fong in the current residential and commercial centre. It won't transform the entire district. There's still a lot of poverty around that needs to be spruced up.

I would hardly consider this industrial :

Futuristic night scene:-
1) HK, Shanghai- mere words cannot describe the magnificient beauty of these both cities at night.
2) Tokyo, maybe some chinese cities

Overall best asian skylines:-
1) HK
2) Shanghai
3) Tokyo/Singapore
4) Seoul/BKK/KL/Manila
5) Jakarta

Kwun Tong is kinda like Aberdeen in a way since both districts have a large industrial area.

Kwun Tong has a far bigger industrial area than Aberdeen, which is why there is so much redevelopment work happening today to convert old disused factories into something more relevant for today's needs. Aberdeen's industrial zone is very small. Take a look at the map and you'll see the difference.

Aberdeen is small unless you can consider Wong Chuk Hang as part of this area.

The Wong Chuk Hang industrial area is just one main street and a few small parallel side streets, and that is a part of Aberdeen. It pales in comparison to Kwun Tong's industrial estates, which link up to Kowloon Bay further northwest.

It's hard for me to tell which is bigger but I think the Aberdeen / Wong Chuk Hang districts is the largest industrial area in HK. But I don't know which is the largest industrial area in the region. Is it Kwai Chung?

Take a look at a map and see how small the Wong Chuk Hang area is. It definitely is not Hong Kong's largest industrial area. I don't know how you can deduce that, but definitely no local would agree with that. There are much larger industrial estates in Kwun Tong and Tai Po. Kwai Chung is a container port area, so there are a lot of storage areas but the port size is actually not very big. I wouldn't agree that all of it is industrial zoning though.

Industrial Estates
Tai Po - 75 hectares
Yuen Long - 67 hectares
Tseung Kwan O - 75 hectares
