The plan is changing to more housing since there already is plenty of new commercial space in nearby Kowloon Bay.

Benefit of this cool weather is blue skies and little smog! That's the old Kai Tak runway over there - you almost can't see it any more under the construction! by antwerpenR, on Flickr

When will the interior photos be posted up? Looks good.. Finally 12-13 yrs after the closure some activity can be seen..

When the airport closed they said that they were going to preserve a section of the runway and make a small airplane museum?

I don't think there are plans for a museum at all. There is a shortage of residential land nowadays and property prices have doubled since the financial crisis started in 2008. The densities at Kai Tak have been increased instead.

啟德郵輪碼頭第一泊
2013年03月17日(日)










Synopsis : The new cruise terminal will officially open in June. Yesterday, the facility hosted a trial run for a cruise ship from Singapore.

六月才正式啟用的啟德郵輪碼頭昨日「試泊」,來自新加坡的「菁英千禧號」昨第三度訪港,搶閘成為首艘停泊郵輪。船長Costas Patsoulas指碼頭海港廣闊,加上昨日風高浪急,增添停泊難度,但新碼頭較尖沙咀海運大廈碼頭空間大,有利郵輪操作。負責統籌「試泊」的船務代理公司表示,現時僅欠缺購物商場及需完善交通配套。碼頭營辦商稱正與當局商討,期望可增建公共渡輪碼頭供市民使用。

「菁英千禧號」昨日清晨約六時順利停泊啟德郵輪碼頭,成為首艘停泊的船隻。船長Costas Patsoulas表示,碼頭海港廣闊,加上風勁水流急,致停泊時稍有困難。他認為新碼頭較海運大廈碼頭空間大,操作亦較易,有信心啟德郵輪碼頭將會成為全球最佳碼頭之一。

望增建公共渡輪碼頭

華林船務(香港)有限公司總經理陳錦富稱,試業是為了測試泊位安排及防撞膠性能,觀察碼頭對大型郵輪的承受能力。結果大致暢順,而且碼頭面積大,方便補給物資,惟欠缺大型商場供旅客購物。他續指碼頭大樓尚未竣工,因此入境事務處派員登船協助乘客辦理入境手續,而海關職員亦在岸上設置帳篷助旅客清關,船公司有穿梭巴接載旅客往返港鐵九龍站和碼頭。碼頭營辦商乘客服務總監班智榮表示,現正與當局商討完善碼頭的交通配套。他稱,現時只有小巴及巴士等陸上交通工具能到達碼頭,盼望日後能增建公共渡輪碼頭,讓市民多一個選擇。

來自德克薩斯州的旅客Jeraldine形容啟德郵輪碼頭外觀優美,媲美其他國際級碼頭。旅客之一的香港居民梁先生稱,船務公司有穿梭巴士通宵接載往返市中心,安排可以接受。載有逾二千名來自美國及加拿大等地旅客的「菁英千禧號」經越南抵港,該船停泊三天後,會接載新一批旅客啟航往新加坡。

多個環保團體批評擁有「菁英千禧號」的皇家加勒比海郵輪公司,一直迴避泊岸時會否棄用高污染燃油,漠視該區居民健康。團體遂聯同觀塘區及啟德區議員出海,拉起橫額抗議,要求該公司承諾棄用高污染燃油。

黃士心:將勝新加坡

多次帶領郵輪團的康泰旅行社董事長黃士心指,現時地中海航線無論設施及發展度最為成熟,但亞洲郵輪航線仍在發展,啟德郵輪碼頭落成後,估計其他沿岸城市亦會陸續興建大型或郵輪碼頭,相信亞洲航線日後可媲美地中海航線。他又指新加坡的碼頭較完善,料啟德郵輪碼頭日後規模及配套將更勝新加坡。

Kai Tak pilot ready for takeoff
The Standard
Wednesday, March 20, 2013



The first-ever residential sites designated exclusively for local permanent residents open for tender next Thursday.

Bids for the two Kai Tak plots will be accepted until the end of May, the Lands Department said.

At 83,639 square feet and 92,400 sq ft, and titled 1H1 and 1H2, respectively, the plots are part of the "Hong Kong Property for Hong Kong People" pilot program launched in September by Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying.

Expected prices are around HK$2 billion for 1H1 and HK$2.2 billion for 1H2.

A total of at least 1,145 flats can be built on the sites, which will yield a maximum gross floor area of 418,196 sq ft and 462,002 sq ft, respectively.

All buyers must be Hong Kong permanent residents, with sales to non-locals or corporations not allowed.

Joint purchases where one buyer is a non-permanent resident will only be allowed if the pair are closely related, such as parents, spouse, children or siblings.

Developers of the plots have to put all new units on the market for sale.

And future owners can lease their flats out to anyone, even non-locals, but with a maximum five-year term set for each tenancy. This is to avoid abusive transfers of residential flats to overseas residents through long leases.

The conditions will likely make developers more conservative in their bids, it is believed.

Midland Surveyors director Alvin Lam Tsz-pun said developers will factor in the risks arising from the restrictions.

He estimates the plots to each fetch around HK$4,800 per buildable square foot.

But Lau Ping-cheung, a member of the government's Long Term Housing Strategy Steering Committee, expects little impact from the restrictions as most homebuyers in the SAR are locals anyway.

He added that transportation facilities such as the future Kai Tak MTR station on the Sha Tin to Central Link will likely whet developer interest in submitting bids.
