舊 區 重 建 講 求 通 風
星島日報報道
2007/5/13

市建局觀塘重建項目,將迎合本港市民關注屏風樓效應的新趨勢,委託專家評估及引入通風指標,並以高而不密為重建原則,市建局行政總監林中麟透露,希望觀塘重建後,可將區內通風改善四成三,並會在其他地區重建項目引入評估。

林中麟接受有铫訪問時指出,市建局針對近年市民關注屏風樓效應,觀塘重建項目中,市建局會在布局及設計小心1處理,以高而不密為原則,並邀請專家作評估。

他希望重建後可為觀塘區內帶來百分之四十三的通風改善,四周環境則有百分之二十三改善。而其他項目亦會加強關注通風設計,灣仔利東街擬興建一條由東部至西部的通道協助通風,上環結志街亦作同樣安排,日後重建項目將有同類
評估。

不過,他坦言,早年已上馬的重建項目,現難以加入有關評估,唯有現時開始的新項目引進評估,必須平衡樓上及鋪位業主要求、市民綠化需要及地產商合作發展興趣,相信為市建局一大挑戰。 

另外,古物諮詢委員會委員劉秀成日回應皇后碼頭評級事件時表示,古物古蹟辦事處報告已把皇后碼頭評為現代建築典範,說明皇后碼頭、大會堂與愛丁堡廣場是三位一體建築群,有互相呼應作用應予並存,政府毋須急於先拆後重置﹔而表明反對撥款清拆皇后碼頭的立法會工務小組成員李永達指,民政事務局長何志平應考慮向特首推薦,將一級歷史建築的碼頭列為法定建築。

Kwun Tong flat owners in a bind
4 July 2007
South China Morning Post

Kwun Tong flat owners have appealed to the development secretary to buy properties affected by a redevelopment project within six months, saying they have been unable to sell or rent out their apartments.

They urged Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, who was appointed to head the new Development Bureau two weeks ago, to act quickly to buy the properties.

Chui Wai, the representative for the area's 1,400 flat owners, said the redevelopment plan had deterred potential buyers or tenants from moving to the district.

"Who would want to come when they are unsure of the time for the redevelopment and without help in reallocating?" he said.

The Urban Renewal Authority had imposed a cutoff date of March 30 last year to establish ownership of the flats, with owners of flats bought after that receiving less compensation and tenants who rented after this date receiving no compensation.

Mr Chui said flat owners were also reluctant to pay for the maintenance of run-down buildings due for demolition.

The Kwun Tong project, the largest of its kind in Hong Kong, involves 5.3 hectares of land, will cost the authority HK$30 billion and take up to 12 years to complete. It will transform Kwun Tong into a commercial and retail hub for eastern Kowloon.

An Urban Renewal Authority spokesman did not directly comment on the residents' demands, saying the Town Planning Board was still processing redevelopment plan applications.

Meanwhile, property developer Cheung Kong has agreed to allow nine households in Nga Tsin Wai, Wong Tai Sin, to temporarily extend their stay after filing an immediate removal order.

The villagers had sought help from the Executive Council and the Urban Renewal Authority to delay their removal.

The 600-year-old village was the last remaining walled village in the urban area.

I knew there was a thread about Kwun Tong somewhere ... and I posted these in the Urban Redev. thread :

Town centre revamp on track
6 September 2007
South China Morning Post

The public and the Planning Department have given a qualified thumbs-up to the planned redevelopment of Kwun Tong town centre, although there are concerns about the height of a 90-storey commercial tower and the effect of high-rise residential buildings on air flow in the area.

This follows a three-month consultation launched in April after the Urban Renewal Authority submitted the draft redevelopment plan to the Town Planning Board. Of 1,254 comments received by the board, more than 90 per cent supported the plan and asked the government to shorten the planning process in order to improve living conditions in the run-down area as soon as possible.

Of the 21 submissions objecting to the plan, most said the 280-metre commercial tower was too high and might spoil views of the Kowloon Hills' ridgeline. They also worried the super high-rise would increase traffic and worsen air quality in the town centre.

The "iconic" commercial tower is one of 122 characteristics of the draft plans that are said to reflect aspirations of the community. In a paper summing up the views from the public and relevant departments, lawmaker Alan Leong Kah-kit and pressure group SEE Network said the commercial tower proposal was out of place, disregarded the gradual, long-term evolution of the old area and would will further break the ridgeline.

A chief town planner from the Planning Department said more justifications were needed for the proposed building heights - 280 metres and 170 metres - for the iconic tower and residential buildings, because the redevelopment would have a moderate to high visual impact on residents in the area. The town planner said the redevelopment would reduce air ventilation in some areas, including much of Kwun Tong Road, and the authority was advised to reduce the size of the pedestrian walkway and address the reduction of ventilation in other problem areas.

But the authority said in its submission that the aim of high-rise towers was to create smaller building footprints to maximise open space and to help form breezeways and view corridors to avoid the wall effect. The redevelopment will accommodate 600,000 people.

The proposal will be discussed by the board tomorrow.

Iconic tower too tall, town planner says
8 September 2007
South China Morning Post

A high-rise proposed for the Kwun Tong redevelopment site has been criticised for being "too tall" and possibly disrupting the ridge line.

The 90-storey commercial tower - intended by the Urban Renewal Authority to be a district landmark - came under attack at a meeting of the Town Planning Board yesterday.

Board member Daniel To Boon-man said the height of the building far exceeded that of the APM mall in Kwun Tong and may destroy the continuity of the Kowloon hills' ridge line.

"An iconic building does not have to be tall," he said. "It will destroy the ridge line if one looks from some perspectives."

But the authority's managing director, Billy Lam Chung-lun, said Kwun Tong residents supported the idea of having a landmark in the district. He said the intention in building an iconic high-rise tower was to maximise space between buildings. "The tower is no doubt very tall but we have tried to make the zone as green as possible. We also hope to make it less dense when its height is increased."

The board members' concern echoed that of the Planning Department, which called for more justification for the tower and another 170-metre residential building.

The commercial tower is one of the 122 characteristics of the draft plans that are said to reflect the aspirations of the community. The Kwun Tong project, costing HK$30 billion, would accommodate 600,000 people.

There's quite a huge supply of new high-quality office towers in Kowloon Bay, and I doubt there is enough demand at present to fill a supertall in Kwun Tong.
