Building for BEAM Gold, Kowloon Bay

kowloon_bay

The HKSAR government tender for a 4,927 sqm commercial site in Wang Chiu Street, Kowloon Bay will close tomorrow, the media is speculating on the estimated tenders. However, interestingly amongst the myriad of the usual conditions of sale that accompany government lands sales is the requirement to attain Provisional Gold or above Rating for all building(s) on the site. ¬†However, they set the bar very low, a “provisional” rating is hardly difficult task, it is a shopping list of commitments, and there is no guarantee that those promised green features will be implemented.

The new development will have 120 metre height limitation, but will dwarf its elderly neighbours which were capped to suit the flight path of the former Kai Tak Airport.
