Waterfront's ambience at risk, harbour activists fear
15 August 2009
South China Morning Post

Members of the Harbourfront Enhancement Committee are worried that new pump rooms and utilities will ruin the ambience and accessibility of the new Central waterfront.

The members warned that diners at future restaurants along the harbourfront might not be able to eat outside if construction plans did not take into account the future possible uses for the area.

An aerial shot of the Central waterfront showed utility buildings and a few pump rooms, including one that was more than 170 metres long and about three metres high on the waterfront to the north of the Tamar site. An air vent for the Central and Wan Chai bypass will also be built in front of IFC One and Two.

The shot has prompted worries that the government is repeating mistakes made to promenades in West Kowloon and Kai Tak, where roads and air vents have ruined the look of the waterfront.

The Development Bureau said the pump rooms had been built underground. But their air shafts had to be above ground. Greenery would be planted on the roofs of the pump rooms to beautify the environment, the bureau's spokeswoman said.

Harbourfront Enhancement Committee member Vincent Ng Wing-shun said he was surprised to see utilities built along the waterfront as the government's consultant was still studying the plans for the Central waterfront. "We haven't decided where to put the alfresco dining," he said. "Can the pump houses structurally support a restaurant?"

Mr Ng said there were lots of cases where government departments had made the area around a waterfront less attractive.

He said one proposal received by the committee last month was from the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department, which proposed parking garbage trucks temporarily at the North Point waterfront underneath the Island Eastern Corridor and enclosing the area with wooden boards.

"We need an overarching harbour commission to solve these problems," he said.

Another committee member, Paul Zimmerman, said there would not be much room for alfresco dining if the pump room were not able to support restaurants. The PLA berth would also occupy 150 metres of the waterfront, he said.

Greg Wong Chak-yan, who chairs the committee's task force to advise the government on the Central waterfront, said the pump rooms had replaced those knocked down during the reclamation.

He said the pump rooms might be able to support restaurants but careful design would be needed to take into account the undulating waterfront.

In a committee meeting on Monday, the task force will recommend that the government restores the Star Ferry Clock Tower and Queen's Pier in their original locations.

Most task force members, excluding government officials, would prefer the pier to be reassembled with a large lagoon built in front of it, making it a place for public activities. They would also like to maintain the historic proportions of the clock tower, City Hall and the pier.

According to today's news the former queen's pier will be relocated between Pier 9 and 10 if I got my understanding right.

Queen's Pier will not return to original site
18 August 2009
The Standard

The government has decided not to reassemble Queen's Pier at its former site, Secretary for Development Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said.

She told the Harbour-front Enhancement Committee yesterday that the majority of city residents would like to see the iconic colonial waterfront relic maintain its functional use as a pier.

This was indicated by comment cards, face-to-face interviews, telephone polls and community engagement forums, she said.

Lam added that the majority consensus is for the pier to be relocated between Central Piers numbers 9 and 10 along the waterfront instead of at its original site where it would be landlocked by the Central reclamation. In addition, the change of site would mean the work can be completed in 2013, one year earlier than planned.

The decision to relocate the pier had nothing to do with technical difficulties, Lam said. ``It is based on the majority of public responses.''

Lam said 49 percent of those filling in comment cards preferred the new location against 27 percent seeking a return to the original site. In face-to-face interviews it was 58 to 27 for the new site. Focus group workshops, however, were 39-16 for the original site.

It has also been decided to reassemble the clock from the Star Ferry Clock Tower at its original location, Lam said.

A gallery at the site will display various memorabilia salvaged from the old Star Ferry terminal.

The government has further agreed to lower the development density in front of Two IFC after rising concerns that the density was too high for a site close to the waterfront.

However, a Task Group on Urban Design Study for the New Central Harbourfront insists that the majority of Hongkongers prefer Queen's Pier to be reassembled at its original location with a large lagoon created in front of it. They believe this will maintain the pier's historic connections with Edinburgh Place and City Hall.

The group also claims the support of architects and heritage concern groups. Engineers and surveyors on the other hand are in general supportive of the waterfront option.

Green Sense yesterday expressed disappointment at the decision to relocate the pier, saying it will diminish its historic value.

The removal of Queen's Pier in 2007 caused a public outcry and a wave of protests and litigation.

Two members of conservation group Local Action who sought a judicial review against the decision to dismantle it lost their lawsuit and were recently ordered to pay HK$270,650 in legal costs.

Opinion : Harbourfront policy needs drastic rethink
29 August 2009
South China Morning Post

Can the government fix its flawed approach to conceiving the Central waterfront before it is too late? Your report "Queen's Pier to be moved despite call of advisers", (August 18) makes me wonder. The government has opted to shoehorn the pier between Piers 9 and 10.

The other scheme would have returned Queen's Pier to its original site. You noted that "only workshops that involved architects, planners, engineers, and concern groups" (in other words, professionals who have spent thousands of hours studying the waterfront) favoured it. They sought, you explained, to restore the historic relationship between Queen's Pier, Edinburgh Place and City Hall.

In fact, a more compelling reason favours the original location. Queen's Pier could sit at the head of an inner harbour - the peaceful body of water that is the central feature of benchmark waterfronts in Singapore, Sydney and Baltimore. My team pushed the concept during the 2007 design competition, I presented it to the Planning Department a year ago (see www.queenspier.com), and the Harbourfront Enhancement Committee and other groups championed it, to no avail.

Secretary for Development Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said restoring Queen's Pier to its original location would delay construction of a new road, stating: "I cannot postpone the project indefinitely. People would blame the government for being unable to make decisions". This shows how wrong-headed it is to have the Planning Department leading the conception of what is supposed to become a world-class waterfront. It is not equipped for the role.

We need to change the team and get a vision for the Central waterfront that relates it to the two other major waterfront sites. Benchmark leading waterfronts. Develop a comprehensive concept, focusing first on defining and positioning the anchor uses that must pull people to and along the waterfront. Then, plan the district and engineer the infrastructure.

We need political leadership. The Central waterfront is arguably the most important urban development site in the world, a strategic asset in the city's competition for tourism and business. The government needs to form the harbour commission that many have advocated. In the meantime, it should let Mrs Lam and her department off the hook, lest they dig us into a deeper hole.

Dick Groves, Wan Chai

The lower levels of 2IFC may be impacted, since there suppose to have one lowrise in front of it, and one more on the east side of it. But they are the only two buildings going to be there. The rest of the area is going to be green space and park, so I won't think the higher levels would be impacted.

After all, this is Central, the property values will only go up if the whole market doesn't collapse.

Reclamation projects put squeeze on harbour
2 November 2009
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong's image owes much to Victoria Harbour, but that body of water has been squeezed to less than half its original width - to a mere 910 metres - with the completion of the Central Reclamation Phase III.

The 18 hectares of new land outside Two IFC is big enough to build five blocks the size of Two IFC. That hefty footprint shrank the Tsim Sha Tsui-Central gap to less than 1km. More of the harbour will turn into land when the controversial Central-Wan Chai bypass begins soon.

Before any reclamation began, the gap between Kowloon and Hong Kong - from Johnson Road in Wan Chai to Chatham Road in Tsim Sha Tsui - was 2,300 metres. From 1996 to 2004, 80 hectares of harbour land was reclaimed - over 30 hectares of it in Central and Wan Chai - according to the Lands Department. A further 12.7 hectares of land will appear in the harbour from 2010 to 2016 under the Wan Chai Development Phase II project, between Wan Chai and Central.

Alan Tam, a shipping officer who has worked in a Tsim Sha Tsui office overlooking the harbour for over 15 years, said he felt "weird" at times when he looked out of the window. "It seems to me the distance between here and Hong Kong Island is getting narrower and narrower. A couple of times my colleagues joked that the government should build a bridge so we could walk across the harbour."

Winston Chu Ka-sun, founder of the Society for the Protection of the Harbour, which has opposed the government over reclamation since the 1990s, said far too much of the harbour had been reclaimed.

"The Central-Wan Chai bypass is just an excuse for the government to reclaim land in Central. The land reclaimed is for property development," said Chu, who says that no reclamation along Victoria Harbour should be used for commercial purpose.

"In many countries, city planning is for people's well-being, but in Hong Kong city planning is for money-making." Chu drafted the Protection of the Harbour Ordinance, which was adopted by the Legislative Council and passed in 1997.

Now a new controversy is looming over reclaimed land. The government recently planned to change the designated use of a harbourfront site in Wan Chai - from public use to commercial - in compensation for the loss of commercial land in Central, after it announced a reduction in the development density outside Two IFC.

Secretary for Development Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said last week that the move did not breach the harbour law, but Chu said the group may file a lawsuit against it. He said the land should be left for public use, and he would oppose the administration when it applied to the Town Planning Board for a change of land use in the months ahead.

Chu said he closely monitors the harbour every day, and pointed out that there are still many gazetted but unimplemented reclamation proposals. "I will go to court if the government wants to reclaim any more."

There are over 500 hectares of proposed reclamation, including plans to fill in the whole of Kowloon Bay and reclaim another 38 hectares of harbour off Central. Other plans are to reclaim 30 hectares at Tsuen Wan, 26 hectares at Wan Chai and for a giant promontory joining Green Island to the western tip of Hong Kong Island.

All these reclamations could be carried out as they are already gazetted. But they will probably be challenged successfully in court, after a number of key rulings on the harbour law. The government has pledged that no more reclamation will take place after the current works in Central and Wan Chai.

There have been seven legal challenges so far against the administration under the law.

Dr Ng Mee-kam, an associate professor in the department of urban planning and design at the University of Hong Kong, said the government and developers had always considered reclamation an easy way to increase land supply and resolve issues such as congested roads.

But now, Ng believes, it has become much more difficult for the government to reclaim harbour land because the opposition has grown stronger. "But there is still lots to be done to make the harbourfront become more accessible and more user-friendly," he said.

The harbour protection society is planning a demonstration from Central to Wan Chai on Sunday to promote the protection of the harbour.

Development Bureau's response to Society for Protection of the Harbour's press release
Tuesday, November 3, 2009
Government Press Release

In response to the press release issued by the Society for Protection of the Harbour today (November 3), the Development Bureau made the following response:

The Society for Protection of the Harbour (the Society) said in its press release today that the suggested land uses of the New Central Harbourfront as announced by the government recently would lead to serious traffic congestion. This is not true. In its press release, the Society provided the data assumption used by the Transport Department in 2005 on the floor area that could be developed in the Central reclamation area. Such data was used by the Department when conducting a traffic impact assessment for the Central reclamation area and Central-Wan Chai Bypass. We have to point out that the assessment concluded that the capacity of the road network in the vicinity of the Central reclamation area would be sufficient to cope with the additional traffic flow brought by the new developments in the future.

In fact, the gross floor area (GFA) in the latest design of the New Central Harbourfront is 41% lower than the data assumption in 2005. Therefore, the road network is expected to bring even less traffic impact when compared with the original assessment.

We also noted that the Society has used a sketch showing “Reclamation Plans of Victoria Harbour” in its press release, which contains a lot of incorrect information. For example, the plan on the sketch shows that the size of the reclamation for Wan Chai Development Phase II is 26 hectares when in fact the approved reclamation is 12.7 hectares. In respect of the Central Reclamation Phase III, the scope of the reclamation has also decreased from 38 hectares to 18 hectares. In addition, other reclamation plans depicted by the sketch have never been gazetted or have already lapsed, and the government will not pursue any more reclamation works on both sides of Victoria Harbour.

We understand that the public aspires for more open space. We will provide 18 hectares of open space in the New Central Harbourfront.

In the Stage 2 Public Engagement for the Urban Design Study for the New Central Harbourfront, many of the public response we received indicated that the development density of Sites 1 and 2 should be further reduced. The Task Group on Urban Design Study for the New Central Harbourfront of the Harbour-front Enhancement Committee (HEC) also held the same view. Moreover, in view of the demand for Grade A offices and the needs of economic development in Hong Kong, the Task Group made a pragmatic recommendation of redistributing the commercial GFA in Sites 1 and 2 to Site 5. This recommendation has the overall support of the Task Group and the HEC. The Government has accepted this recommendation.

We will continue to protect, preserve and beautify the harbourfront for public enjoyment and will endeavour to strike a balance between providing quality space, which is a growing public concern, and relieving the shortage of office space in the city centre.

Exco backs relocation of high-rise projects from Central to Wan Chai
4 November 2009
SCMP

The Executive Council yesterday approved harbourfront development changes in which 58,000 square metres of commercial use floor area, earmarked to be constructed at a prime site in Central, have been relocated to Wan Chai.

The government wants to move hotel and office developments adjacent to Two IFC to the area in front of Citic Tower in Wan Chai.

With the commercial high-rise buildings gone, two, two-storey blocks of buildings for retail, restaurant and exhibition uses would be built near the Central piers, the Development Bureau said yesterday. One and a half extra commercial floors for dining and retail would be added above Central piers four to six.

A six-storey block, housing cultural activities and shops, would be erected north of Two IFC by a public-private partnership.

The reduction of commercial floor area in Central would be compensated for by developments in Wan Chai. They would come in the form of a hotel and an office building from 13 to 16 floors high with a total gross floor area of 58,000 square metres, a bureau spokeswoman said.

The change of use from government to commercial in Wan Chai would not affect views and the government was not breaking any laws in doing it. "The density of the development and the maximum height would be the same as before the change of land use," she said.

Public opinion indicated most people wanted fewer offices on Central's harbourfront, she said. On the other hand, how land in front of Citic Tower should be used had not been set in previous plans. The government had conformed to town planning regulations and did not find reclamation in Central to be a violation of the Protection of the Harbour Ordinance.

Central and Wan Chai were the only places where reclamation continued, she said. Previous reclamation plans for the northwestern tip of Hong Kong Island, Tsuen Wan and Kai Tak had lapsed or had been changed during the town planning process.

The Society for Protection of the Harbour, which has accused the government of breaking the law over its plan to change the Wan Chai land to commercial use, has urged the public to attend a "Walk for the Harbour" at the Central piers on Sunday.

"If offices shouldn't be built in front of Two IFC, why should they be built in front of Citic Tower?" former chairman Winston Chu Ka-sun said.

If the government proposed the change of land use to the Town Planning Board, the society would protest at the meeting, he said. It would take legal action against the government if the board approved the plan.
