CRIII is the final phase of the Central District Waterfront Reclamation Project

http://www.businessreviewaustralia.c...se-iii-project

This is only the introduction, there's alot more information on the website

The Central Reclamation Phase III (CRIII) project is part of a larger waterfront reclamation project in the Central District of Hong Kong Island that began with Central Reclamation I in 1991. The land reclamation project is required for the construction of the Central-Wanchai Bypass as well as future development of the Central waterfront area. CRIII is the last significant reclamation in the Central District and is expected to be complete by the end of 2011.

Where does the underground road go? It looks like a dead end.

Cavern plan better than reclamation
23 May 2011
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong has an insatiable appetite for more space, as evidenced by the amount of development on reclaimed land. Now that reclamation, even outside Victoria Harbour, is environmentally controversial, innovative alternatives are more likely to be taken seriously. One first mentioned in the budget speech three months ago is a case in point. Last week officials fleshed out a proposal to excavate big caverns under parts of the city in which to relocate unpopular utilities such as sewage treatment plants, fuel storage depots, refuse transfer stations and columbariums. The government could easily recoup the cost through sale of the vacated land for redevelopment. For example, according to Permanent Secretary for Development Wai Chi-sing, moving the Sha Tin sewage treatment plant at a cost of about HK$10 billion would free up 28 hectares of land with Tolo Harbour views that could be sold for much more.

Officials have identified 400 facilities that could be moved and all told the idea could free up more than 100 hectares of land.

You could ask why it has not been done already, given that two thirds of the city sits on granite and volcanic rock suitable for hollowing out to make caverns, according to the Civil Engineering and Development Department. Perhaps it is because of the need to provide infrastructure from scratch and for energy-intensive ventilation.

Subject to strict human and environmental safety guidelines, burying utilities in caverns has to be better than reclaiming more land. A feasibility study is therefore worthwhile. Coincidentally the government plans reclamation at seven sites away from the harbour, but any further destruction of natural shorelines should be a last resort.

The Sha Tin sewage plant sits near the racecourse where the Shing Mun River flows into Tide Cove. In such circumstances redevelopment should be subject to preservation or restoration of the public's rightful access to foreshores. That should be a stipulation of the government's mission to ensure a stable and sustainable supply of land.

Harbour defender calls for easing of his own law
10 June 2011
South China Morning Post

The drafter of the Protection of the Harbour Ordinance says it is time to relax the interpretation of his own law, which prohibits reclamation in Victoria Harbour. Winston Chu Ka-sun made the remark yesterday after the Harbour Business Forum said the government's interpretation of the law was the main obstacle to building piers, landing steps and marinas around the harbour. Maggie Brooke, who chairs the forum's best practice committee, said small-scale reclamation which improved public access and enjoyment of the harbour should be allowed.

LDAC briefed on reclamation outside Victoria Harbour and rock cavern development studies
Thursday, July 14, 2011
Government Press Release

At its meeting today (July 14), the Land and Development Advisory Committee (LDAC) received a briefing from the Development Bureau (DEVB) and relevant government departments on the studies and public engagement exercise on increasing land supply by reclamation outside Victoria Harbour and rock cavern development.

The Committee agreed that the Government should further study ways to provide usable land, including reclamation outside Victoria Harbour and rock cavern development, to meet Hong Kong's housing and economic development needs in the medium to long term. Members suggested that in future public engagement, the Administration should actively engage the community to discuss the need and options available to increase land supply.

Members noted that reclamation would help resolve the problems of handling surplus public fill and contaminated sediments. Relocating suitable government facilities to caverns would also free up land for housing and other purposes.

The Civil Engineering and Development Department started the preliminary feasibility study on reclamation outside Victoria Harbour and cavern development earlier this month. The Stage 1 public engagement exercise will start in the fourth quarter of this year.

The LDAC also advised the Government to support a project to redevelop the Pioneer Memorial Church building and the former Hong Kong Sam Yuk Secondary School premises in Happy Valley proposed by the Hong Kong-Macao Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. The site will be redeveloped into a four-storey-high church building and a complex with church facilities, senior hostel and residential care home for the elderly.

The Pioneer Memorial Church was graded as a Grade 3 historic building in November 2010. Through the co-ordination of the Development Opportunities Office of DEVB, the Commissioner for Heritage's Office and the Antiquities and Monuments Office have obtained the project proponent's agreement to preserve the character-defining features of the existing church building and to reassemble them in the redeveloped church building. The project proponent will continue to work with the Administration on details of its conservation plan.

Members noted that the new church building would provide additional floor space and facilities for church activities. The new senior hostel and residential care home for the elderly would provide elderly people with more housing choices and provide care and support services to elderly people with various intensive care needs.

'Common sense' sailing into the harbor projects picture
The Standard
Thursday, September 08, 2011

Guidelines for reclamation may be reviewed to reflect a greater degree of "common sense" now that a leading harbor protection activist has agreed with officials on a need for a balanced approach.

Secretary for Development Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor made the remarks about a government rethink at a Harbourfront Commission meeting.

Society for Protection of the Harbour adviser Winston Chu Ka-sun said earlier yesterday that his group will support a limited reclamation when the gain overrides the loss of that part of the harbor.

Welcoming Chu's remarks, Lam said officials will "humbly look at our guidelines again" to see how the society's ideas may be incorporated. But another party could still go to court, she cautioned.

The government, she said, must abide by a January 2004 Court of Final Appeal ruling that any reclamation must satisfy an "overriding public need" test. But "at least we can now proceed with this more common-sense approach."

Lam noted that seven months after the court laid down the principle, the government issued practical guidelines on public work projects. And on new reclamation, she said, a proposal must be shown by "cogent and convincing" materials to be of greater public importance than part of the harbor.

Chu said he is happy with Lam's words and hopes officials will adopt the "proportionality principle." Under it, a prime consideration in deciding on reclamation is whether a project has enough advantages for the people to justify the loss.

Chu also sought to refute suggestions that his group has changed its stance on preserving and protecting the harbor, saying it has never argued that all reclamation should be banned.

Small-scale reclamation that may enhance the value of the harbor, he added, may include building a pier, landing steps, and such projects can be considered on a case-by-case basis.

LCQ9: Harbourfront development
Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Government Press Release

Following is a question by the Hon James To Kun-sun and a written reply by the Secretary for Development, Mrs Carrie Lam, in the Legislative Council today (October 26):

Question:

According to a paper submitted by the Government to the Subcommittee on Harbourfront Planning of this Council in July this year, the Government will examine the establishment of a dedicated "harbourfront authority" for harbourfront development. Moreover, the Government also proposed that "the open space at ex-Tai Kok Tsui bus terminus site will be developed into a waterfront open space by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department" (Tai Kok Tsui bus terminus development project), and "possible development of a new waterfront promenade for public use upon successful re-zoning of a vacant site of about 200-metre long to the north of Yau Ma Tei typhoon shelter to 'Open Space' use" (Yau Ma Tei waterfront development project). In this connection, will the Government inform this Council:

(a) of the current progress of the Tai Kok Tsui bus terminus development project; whether the final design is expected to be different from the design previously submitted to the Harbourfront Commission; of the expected time when the Government will proceed to seek funding from this Council;

(b) regarding the aforesaid development projects in the waterfront areas of Tai Kok Tsui and Yau Ma Tei, whether the Government will in the near future conduct traffic assessment or study the improvement of transport supporting facilities in order to mitigate the possible impact of the projects on the traffic in such districts; in addition, as I have learnt that at present provision has been made for an exit to be connected to a footbridge leading from the southern concourse of the Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line to the nearby waterfront, whether the Government will consider constructing access links to enhance the accessibility of the nearby waterfront areas;

(c) of the expected time when the vacant site located to the north of Yau Ma Tei typhoon shelter and reserved for "Open Space" use will be developed into a waterfront promenade; given that the Government has planned to construct marine facilities at the existing "Government, Institution or Community Facilities" site which is adjacent to that vacant site, and the waterfront access next to the marine facilities will be developed into a waterfront promenade, whether the Government will develop that waterfront access into a waterfront promenade together with the "Open Space" site at the same time; in addition, whether at present there is any new progress of exploring how to improve the pedestrian facilities running from the West Kowloon Cultural District located to the south of Yau Ma Tei towards the Tai Kok Tsui waterfront located to the north; and

(d) given that the Secretary for Development earlier said that a framework on the various aspects of the establishment of the "harbourfront authority" was expected to be worked out within one year, of the current progress, and according to the Government's estimate, whether it can complete drafting the framework as scheduled?

Reply:

President,

My reply to the four-part question is as follows:

(a) According to the Draft South West Kowloon Outline Zoning Plan (OZP) No. S/K20/26, the parcel of waterfront land at the ex-Tai Kok Tsui bus terminus site has been zoned as "Open Space". The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Architectural Services Department (ArchSD) consulted the Community Building Committee under the Yau Tsim Mong District Council (YTMDC) and the Task Force on Harbourfront Developments in Kowloon, Tsuen Wan and Kwai Tsing (Kowloon Task Force) under the Harbourfront Commission (HC) on the preliminary design of the open space development in May last year and early this year respectively. ArchSD is now fine-tuning the design of the open space in the light of the views collected and LCSD will prepare for funding application for the project in due course.

(b) Regarding the two development sites involved in the harbourfront development projects in Tai Kok Tsui and Yau Ma Tei, to which the question refers, the parcel of waterfront land at the ex-Tai Kok Tsui bus terminus site has been zoned as "Open Space" while the strip of land along Hoi Fai Road on the waterfront facing Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter has been rezoned from "Government, Institution or Community" (G/IC) to "Open Space" . As the traffic flow in relation to "Open Space" sites is normally lower than that of G/IC sites, the relevant change in zoning is not expected to cause adverse traffic impact on the road networks in the vicinity.

Regarding the area near the southern concourse of the MTR Olympic Station, the public can now walk from the MTR Olympic Station to the sites near Hoi Fai Road (including the above "Open Space" sites) by taking the footbridge leading to the Bank of China Centre and through the ground level footpath. The Administration does not have any plan to construct a new footbridge connecting the southern concourse of the MTR Olympic Station with the Hoi Fai Road area at this stage, but will continue to monitor closely the traffic and pedestrian flow in the area, and take appropriate follow-up action as necessary.

(c) A strip of land along Hoi Fai Road on the waterfront facing Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter has been rezoned from G/IC to "Open Space" to facilitate the proposed waterfront promenade development. The Development Bureau (DEVB) and the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) are exploring the direction of developing the proposed waterfront promenade and will commence the advance preparatory works as soon as practicable. The Administration will consult the relevant stakeholders, including YTMDC and HC etc, on the works design of the project in due course.

The Marine Department (MD) plans to build additional office facilities to meet its operational needs at the adjacent G/IC site to the north of its existing Harbour Patrol Section office at Hoi Fai Road. MD and ArchSD have briefed YTMDC and Kowloon Task Force under HC respectively on the relevant design and landscaping proposal this year. The Administration has set back the proposed building structure for the provision of a passageway to facilitate public access to the waterfront, subject to the future development of the nearby waterfront areas.

Moreover, there are existing establishments along the New Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter, namely the new Yau Ma Tei Public Cargo Working Area (PCWA) and some other government facilities, including the sewage pumping station of the Drainage Services Department, the marine refuse collection point of MD, the water selling kiosk of the Water Supplies Department and the PCWA Administration Building of MD. In the long run, the Administration will explore how to improve the connection of pedestrian facilities running from the Tai Kok Tsui waterfront in the north to the West Kowloon Cultural District in the south, on condition that the operation of the above facilities will not be affected.

(d) The Task Group on Management Model for the Harbourfront under the former Harbour-front Enhancement Committee recommended in its recommendation report that the Administration could in the long term establish an independent, statutory and dedicated authority for harbourfront planning, design, operation and management. Further to the Secretary for Development's remark in the motion debate on harbourfront development at a Legislative Council meeting held in July this year that relevant research work would be launched, the Harbour Unit of DEVB has commenced work on information collection, with a view to drawing up a framework by mid-2012 for consideration by the Government of the next term. The proposal will be further discussed by HC at its upcoming meetings.

Reclamation probe takes center stage
The Standard
Wednesday, November 09, 2011

The government will launch tomorrow a public consultation on land reclamation and cavern use.

If everything goes well, the first reclaimed site will be available in 2019, sources said.

It is understood the government plans to find seven to eight suitable sites for reclamation in the next few years.

The participation of private companies in reclamation projects is expected by 2017.

Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen announced in his policy address last month that the government will explore the possibility of reclamation on a reasonable scale outside Victoria Harbour.

He also said the government will consider using caverns for housing and other purposes.

Tsang mentioned three sites - the Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works, and the Mount Davis and Kennedy Town Fresh Water Services Reservoirs.

According to sources, the government will also include Siu Ho Wan on Lantau Island, Lam Tei in Tuen Mun and Lion Rock Hill.

On reclamation outside Victoria Harbour, the government will look into location and accessibility. It will also work on meeting people's needs.

Environmental impact, cost effectiveness and planning flexibility will also be considered.

About 500 hectares of land were reclaimed between 2001 and 2005, but fewer than 50 hectares were reclaimed between 2006 and 2010, sources said.

On cavern development, the government will take into account both the social benefits and environmental impact.

According to the Planning Department's existing guidelines, caverns can be used for oil bulk storage and as slaughterhouses, incinerators and columbariums, and many others.

Sources revealed government plans to add to this list by including science laboratories, car parks, cremation facilities and MTR repair centers.

They said 3,754 hectares outside Victoria Harbour and 3,070 hectares within the harbor can be reclaimed. Building artificial islands is also an option.

The government is considering reclamation and finding new uses for caverns because of the challenges it faces in urban planning, sources added.

Land reclamation has met with heavy opposition from long-time residents.
