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

Thanks for the info. But in HK Island, the Wong Chuk Hang / Aberdeen area is still the largest industrial area right? Or is it Chai Wan?

Bangkok's skyline is ok but I don't find it as organized as Manila, KL or Singapore. But I find it's skyscrapers interesting

Where did you get the data for that?

The industrial heartland of Hong Kong has traditionally been Kowloon, and has decentralized into the New Territories.

Bangkok's skyline is somewhat fragmented :









That's only from Lumphini Park. You can't see Baiyoke from there.

No data but observation. But the bank where my mom worked used to have an office in Wong Chuk Hang and was assigned there. It was near Vita Tower. I remembered me and my dad picking her up and seeing an industial skyline.

What if the Baiyoke II was located in Silom or along the Chao Praya River instead in Pratunam. I can't even imagine if the tower is located in Chatuchak!

There are a few large towers along the river, such as this one :

But a bank is a commercial establishment, not industrial. In fact, while a lot of the buildings may look industrial, I know a lot of trading houses and logistics companies like to use these spaces. There simply isn't much manufacturing or heavy industry in Hong Kong anymore.

Wong Chuk Hang is a very small area. You can barely see it tucked away in the back behind the bridge.



Aberdeen's residentials are much more prominent:

I think the heavy industries around this region has moved to The Mainland most likely around Shenzhen and Dongguan.

Wong Chuk Hang is small but is there a possibility in the future that they might revitalize the area or create some urban renewal projects?

They're not even in Shenzhen anymore. They have moved further away from the urban areas. Shenzhen is trying to reinvent itself to be a high-tech and port city.

Wong Chuk Hang is not on the radar for major redevelopments right now. The nearest big project is Ocean Park, which has nothing to do with land use changes and skyscrapers.

If not Shenzhen probably around Dongguan or any rural areas within this region.

As for Wong Chuk Hang, when I was younger, I thought if pollution from it's industrial buildings are affecting areas like Ocean Park or even Shouson Hill.

What pollution though? There are no smokestacks from the buildings. I'd be more worried about the fumes from all the fishing boats in the typhoon shelter.

That's what I first thought, anyway, it's not much of a big issue though
