灣仔建行人天橋 會展連接添馬艦
7月2日 星期三 05:48

【明報專訊】隨着中區海濱發展和沙中線興建,未來灣仔、中區一帶將有更多人流,政府正計劃耗資2.4億元,興建一條近一公里長的行人天橋,連接灣仔入境事務大樓和添馬艦,計劃於2014年建成。沙中線會展站將於2019年落成,屆時市民可透過新天橋,「有瓦遮頭」地徒步來往灣仔、金鐘、會展3個車站,而中途無任何紅綠燈;有城規會委員更指出,市民將來甚至可由灣仔徒步東至北角,西至半山。

根據運輸署提交立法會文件,政府正計劃沿告士打道和夏慤道北面興建一條行人天橋,由現有入境事務大樓直達將來的添馬艦新政府總部,市民可再沿添馬艦外的現有天橋,步往金鐘地鐵站、大會堂、甚至是中環等地;會展站將設於鷹君中心對開的巴士站地下,將來市民亦可透過現有天橋和新天橋,前往灣仔或金鐘地鐵站。

長遠盼東抵北角 西至半山

灣仔區議會主席吳錦津指出,現時已有多達9條天橋橫跨告士打道南北岸,但就一直沒有行人天橋連接灣仔東西兩面,市民沿告士打道走往中西區,要穿越幾條馬路才能到達。他表示,灣仔入境事務大樓天橋興建多年,橋上已非常擠塞,「有人派傳單,又有人拉生意」,有需要興建多一條天橋。

他指出,新天橋連接3個鐵路站,將成為灣仔區交匯點,市民來往3個車站沿路都不會有紅綠燈阻隔,天橋亦有蓋,相信落成後使用率非常高。身為工程師的城規會副主席黃澤恩表示,政府正發展中區海濱用地,將預留用地作海濱長廊,長遠可能直達北角;新天橋的走向正好和海濱長廊平衡,亦提供通道連接車站和中區海濱。

雖然天橋將建於車流不息的告士打道上,曾多次替政府建造行人天橋的黃澤恩表示,建橋可一晚即蹴,不會影響行車。他指出,政府近年都在內地訂好橋樑組件,封路一晚,把組件架起鑲好,工人再花數小時燒焊,天橋就已牢固,路面即可解封。此後,工人就可直接在橋上進行鋪地板、欄杆等裝修工作。

路政署透露,計劃興建一條高架行人道,連接信德中心和中山紀念公園,黃澤恩稱,一向爭取政府再建道路,連接該段路和中環半山蘇豪區,若然成事,將來市民甚至可透過天橋和海濱長廊,東抵北角,西至半山。

立會新大樓 料2011落成
29 October 2008
文匯報

經過一波三折才得以落戶添馬艦的新立法會大樓,已經開始「動土」,預計2011年落成,屆時與政府總部相聯,將成為香港又一矚目地標。新一屆立法會秘書處昨日與傳媒午膳時,也共話新大樓,秘書長吳文華笑說,今屆議員都期待能有機會在新大樓辦公,故希望能夠於2012年初「進駐」,但一切還要視乎工程進度,並以不影響立法會運作為大前提。

體貼記者 有專用辦公桌

說到新大樓,Pauline不忘提醒傳媒,第二輪諮詢將於11月舉行,且大樓的設施亦會便利傳媒採訪,包括為每家報紙「專設辦公桌」,讓記者毋須「霸位」已有獨立工作位置﹔保證每個工作位置都能夠容納到兩名記者於同一時間工作,在會議廳及會議室門外亦設有採訪區,更會窩心地準備數張椅子,令記者不用久站苦等。

不過,最令記者開心的,應該是「唯一通道」,到時記者毋須左穿右插地圍堵議員、高官,皆因大家都要經「唯一通道」進出立法會。Pauline笑說:「一定讓大家有機會逮住議員作回應。」

下月開放日「與民同樂」

另外,11月29日立法會開放日亦有新搞作,Pauline透露,屆時將打破過往參觀式的慣例,一於走入群眾,加設「與民同樂」環節,包括以電腦遊戲方式與市民互動,令市民可以更生動地了解立法會運作,另外會邀請議員充當「布景板」,除了負責帶團之外,於市民排隊時還可以與議員合照。稍後秘書處將去信各議員,由他們去選擇現身的時間。

War bomb find clears offices
Hong Kong Standard
Tuesday, November 18, 2008



A World War II bomb buried by history and dug up by construction workers yesterday was safely detonated by police.

The bomb was found at about 9.30am by a worker at the Tamar site in Admiralty where new government headquarters are being built.

A police bomb disposal unit spokesman said the fuse of the bomb had been damaged, making it dangerous to move.

Explosive Ordinance Disposal Bureau officers first blew open the casing of the bomb to remove the explosives and then set off another to destroy the fuse.

The spokesman said the 0.5-meter long, 32-kilogram bomb could have caused serious damage and casualties within a 100m radius.

About 200 people were temporarily evacuated from the area and Lung Wui Road, which separates the site from Citic Tower, was partially blocked for several hours.

A police spokesman on site praised the care with which workers handled the situation and evacuation.

He said more bombs may be found at Tamar and stressed that other munitions - a legacy of heavy fighting during World War II - could be unearthed at sites across Hong Kong Island and Kowloon.

However, the spokesman said risk at Tamar is "not high" and a full search for explosives is unnecessary.

"It is very difficult to do a full search," he said. "The construction will continue and Gammon [the contractor] will be careful and follow proper procedures."

He added that construction work on the new government facilities involves digging deep enough to find any leftover explosives.

Work at the site resumed yesterday afternoon and a spokeswoman for the Administration Wing said no delays are expected.

Construction at the Tamar site began in February and is expected to be completed by 2011.

"Piling works started in July this year and some 40 percent of the bored piles have been completed," she said.

In September the British Consulate General on Supreme Court Road was evacuated when four wartime cannons were found on the Victoria Barracks site in Admiralty.

In September last year, 800 people were evacuated from North Point when a large war-era bomb was found.

Explosives from the World War II era are still found across the world, from Osaka to east London in a striking testament to the scale of the conflict.

環境局介入 助新政府總部節能
29 November 2008
香港經濟日報

【本報訊】添馬艦新政府總部被揭發沒訂明環保節能目標,引起政府內部關注。據了解,環境局已主動介入,希望可協助行政署在新總部設計上,訂明一些基本節能目標,有需要時亦可新增適用的環保技術或裝置。

本報昨日報道行政署早前收到意見,指新總部聲稱有21項環保措施,但並無訂明節能目標或可再生能源比例,質疑新政府總部也不帶頭推動環保。

有關意見更提出一些可提升節能成效的方案,惟遭行政署以沒有額外資源為理由拒絕。

遭質疑不帶頭推動環保

有政府高官昨日坦言,倘行政署是因立法會已批52億元撥款,為免超支而拒絕加碼新增可行的環保措施,這是不太應該的。該官員指,環保技術日新月異,倘有無限資源,一定有改善空間;但也不應因資源有限,便甚麼都不做。

據了解,環境局將提供協助,評估如何適當地提升環保效能,或訂下一些基本目標,如照明節能表現起碼要達某個水平。

但該官員亦坦言,明白行政署的難處,尤其是像新政府總部如此大規模的工程,標書一定已列明每項工程及費用,當中的環保措施已做得很好;倘需加碼引入更先進的技術,很可能所費不菲,會有超支問題,「政府當初去立法會申請,很辛苦才獲批52億元,要再增加撥款很不容易。」

The winning design has that corporation feel attached to it.
It's a shame they've chosen this one,the others were way better and more pleasant than the boxes.

How HK could copy Big Apple's green lung
Bold plan suggests linking island's existing parks

10 February 2009
South China Morning Post

In a bold plan for Hong Kong's central business district, the local architect who designed the new government headquarters has called for the city's parks to be linked together to form a large green network comparable to New York's Central Park.

Calling on the government to draw up a new metro plan to guide the city's design, veteran architect Rocco Yim Sen-kee, whose "The Door" design was selected for the new government headquarters at Tamar in Central, said: "People hope to have more parks. But instead of asking for more, why don't we look for a large one with quality?"

Mr Yim's aggressive plan would link up three urban parks - Victoria Park, Hong Kong Park and the Zoological and Botanical Gardens - with the future Central promenade and the great lawn at the new government headquarters to form a green network spanning more than 30 hectares in the city's core business area.

He proposed connecting the individual parks with wide, landscaped decks and boulevards covered with trees, forming an extensive green lung for the bustling central business district and improving air quality.

In his preliminary plan, a green deck could be built from Victoria Park to the promenade in Causeway Bay, which the government already plans to connect to the new Central waterfront. Mr Yim's design for the new government headquarters would see its great lawn linked to the Central waterfront.

The other link would require more government effort. Apart from connecting the government headquarters with Hong Kong Park by filling the missing links from the great lawn to Admiralty Centre and government hill, the chief executive would have to give up a small part of Government House for a link from government hill to the botanical gardens.

"People can simply walk directly from government hill to the botanical gardens if our chief executive would lend us a small part of his Government House," Mr Yim said. "The linkage would only occupy his staff quarters."

Asked if the plan could be too aggressive and difficult to implement, Mr Yim said it did not involve private land but would need further surveying to turn it into reality.

"All we need is determination," he said, adding that he would advocate the idea to the government and cite Tamar as an example of how it could be done.

"We don't have a large park like Central Park in New York and Hyde Park in London. But we can sew the existing green patches together, turning it into a unique feature of our city," he said.

Hong Kong has 1,450 urban parks and resting areas but its largest park - Victoria Park - covers only 19 hectares, compared with Central Park's 341 hectares and Hyde Park's 142 hectares.

Mr Yim said the local parks were not well designed and the city's green ratio was below average.

"Green space design is just one of the many aspects of a city's urban design, we need an updated metro plan to guide our development approach," he said.

"Do we want higher buildings? Do we want more greenery in urban areas or just country parks in rural areas? To what extent should we preserve heritage buildings?"

He said the existing metro plan was formulated in the 1990s and had not kept up with changing social aspirations - which now preferred a more balanced development approach.

Chair professor of geography at the University of Hong Kong Jim Chi-yung said the idea of creating linear parks has been widely adopted overseas, including in Taiwan, Japan and Singapore.

"In Sapporo, urban parks are connected skilfully with natural greenways planted with abundant trees," he said. "It is like entering a small forest."

A Planning Department spokeswoman said it had reviewed the metro plan in 2003 and had proposed providing attractive and convenient pedestrian links between the waterfront and major parks. That thinking would be incorporated into district planning work.

Opinion : State-of-the-art
24 April 2009
South China Morning Post

I refer to the letter by Gareth Jones ("Solar panels for Tamar HQ?", April 22) on green features for the Tamar development project.

The government is committed to making the central government offices at Tamar one of the greenest government buildings in Hong Kong.

We have incorporated a number of environmentally friendly measures and energy- saving building service features in the project. These include solar electric panels, green roofs, roof/sky gardens, double-layer ventilated facades, energy-efficient sea-water-cooled chiller plants, recycled rainwater landscape irrigation, service-on- demand escalators, daylight sensor controls, high-efficiency lamps with electronic ballast, and computerised lighting controls.

The overall design of the project also illustrates a careful consideration of the surrounding environment.

The buildings are positioned to form a major breezeway from the harbour to the inner city area in the form of an "open door" that will optimise the harnessing of daylight and inter-block shading against sunlight for indoor spaces.

The north-south layout of the open space, known as the "green carpet", enhances visual permeability through the site and maintains good air ventilation in the area even after the buildings are constructed.

We will assess the environmental performance of the Tamar development project from a comprehensive and holistic perspective.

It is our requirement that the project should achieve the highest grade (that is, the platinum grade) under the Hong Kong Building Environmental Assessment Method of the HK-Beam Society, indicating that the energy performance in various aspects has to reach an "excellent" level.

After commissioning, the government will also conduct a carbon audit on the central government offices and implement an emission-reduction campaign to further reduce its greenhouse gas emission.

Winnie Wong, for director of administration

HK$113m price tag put on Legco expansion
23 May 2009
South China Morning Post

Extra working space at the new government headquarters on the Tamar site, requested by lawmakers, will cost HK$113 million, the administration says.

Legislators have been asked to make a final decision by the end of this month on whether they want the extra space to be added to the complex, on which work has already started. This is so arrangements can be made at the site for preparatory work, which will cost another HK$3 million.

The extra 1,415 square metres of operational floor area would include a constitutional library, an archive, studio for language interpreters, photography room and office space for Legco secretariat staff.

The addition of one floor would need vetting from the Town Planning Board and funding approval from the Legco Finance Committee by the end of the year. The new complex for the legislature is scheduled to be completed in 2011.

Meanwhile, the Town Planning Board yesterday supported the government's proposal to slash the development intensity at the future cross-border railway station in West Kowloon and to use it as a high-grade office hub.

The advisers also asked the administration to require in the planning brief that the developer must ensure the four office towers on the site would not prevent wind from reaching Jordan, to the east.

They urged the MTR Corporation, in designing the entrance hall of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link terminus, to ensure that it not stand in the way of a 40-metre-wide north-south wind corridor on the site.

Planning Department officials assured the advisers that the MTR Corp was required to keep a very low density for all above-ground rail structures. All car park spaces would be built underground, they said.

The outline zoning plan, incorporating the revised parameters, will be exhibited for public consultation.

新立會大樓 申億元擴建
23 May 2009
香港經濟日報

【本報訊】添馬艦新立法會大樓未施工已有擴建計劃,立法會最近統計日後運作所需的總樓面面積時,認為尚欠近2.7萬平方呎,希望立法會財務委員會額外撥款1.13億元擴建新大樓。

欠2.7萬呎樓面 須月底落實

行政署提交立法會發展事務委員會的建議文件指出,由於工程已進入打樁階段,為添馬艦新政府總部設計及施工的承建商金門建築,希望政府本月底前決定是否落實擴建,因為新增樓面涉及加建1層。若5月底之後才決定,已完成的樁帽、地庫、柱和樓板便要作廢,重新建造,浪費逾億元成本,工程時間也會延誤9至12個月。

有關擴建包括增加2,300多呎圖書館面積、1,500呎立法會資料室、1,100呎手語繙譯員使用的錄播室和攝影室,及近7,900呎秘書處辦公室。其中秘書處辦公室需增加1層,其他樓面則可將1層高樓底改成兩層樓面解決。

行政署發言人表示,新政府總部工程如火如荼,但各個大樓在設計初期已預留擴建空間,故其他部門仍可修訂樓面使用的設計要求,但最遲要在今年底前決定。

新政府總部申請加建五層,增16萬平方呎樓面
2 August 2009
經濟通新聞

政府回應立法會議員意見,就添馬艦政府總部及立法會綜合大樓發展用地,向城規會申請擴建,額外增加約16萬平方呎樓面,用以把立法會綜合大樓高座由10層增至15層,加建5層樓面。

城規會早於2005年10月批准添馬艦建政府總部及立法會綜合大樓計劃,地盤以東興建立法會綜合大樓高座及低座,西面則興建樓高27層的政府總部大樓高座,以及樓高4層(另設1層地庫)的政府總部大樓低座。

該項目05年10月獲城規會批出規劃許可,佔地約45﹒21萬平方呎,地皮規劃為「政府、機構或社區(4)」及「休憩用地」,可建總樓面約139﹒03萬平方呎。

雖有關發展正進入詳細設計階段,但為回應議員意見,現向城規會提出修訂。根據項目最新的發展方案,地盤面積約45﹒44萬平方呎,增加2,300平方呎,按地積比3﹒41倍發展,可建總樓面約154﹒99萬平方呎,較前方案增加15﹒96萬平方呎。《香港經濟日報》

Planners to approve extra five storeys for new Legco building
18 September 2009
South China Morning Post

The five-storey expansion of the new Legislative Council building at Tamar is likely to win initial approval from town planners today, despite objections from a Hong Kong-listed mainland company that owns an office block behind the site.

The expansion will equip Legco with a constitutional library, an archive, a studio for sign language interpretation and press photo rooms. It also allows for a possible increase in the number of lawmakers - from 60 to 120. The administration proposed the plan after lawmakers requested extra space to allow for more users. It will raise the height of the building from 63 to 85 metres, with 15 storeys.

The directors of Goldon Investment, owner of the Citic Tower in Tim Mei Avenue, filed an objection with the Town Planning Board on the expansion plan during a public consultation. The directors are also executive directors of Citic Pacific.

In its submission, the company said the proposal would "further block the sea view from the west side of Citic Tower". It would also block the penetration of sunlight to the middle and lower zones on the west side of the tower and intensify the "wall effect", it added.

However, the Planning Department, backing the expansion, said: "In the highly developed context of Hong Kong, it is not practical to protect private views without stifling development opportunity and balancing other relevant considerations.

"In the interests of the public, it is far more important to protect public views, particularly those easily accessible and popular to the public or tourists."

The expansion will also add a Tamar cafe, part of it outdoors, on the second floor of the government office block, connecting to an extensive lawn dubbed the "Green Carpet".

The 265 square metre cafe will be open to the public, and will add variety and vibrancy to the public open space, the department said.

Designing Hong Kong, an NGO concerned with urban design, expressed support during the consultation but urged the government to consider a subway connection between Tamar and a commercial tower in Admiralty to improve pedestrian access. The existing plan to land the walkway on a pavement was a less direct route to inner Admiralty, it said.

The government rejected the suggestion, saying it would involve road closures. The Town Planning Board will discuss the plan today.

The Tamar development will house two government office blocks as well as Legco. It is expected to be operational by 2012.
