Hong Kong’s Civil Engineering and Development Department has opened a competition to overhaul the Kai Tak River
Planned to complete in 2021, the project will transform the urban waterway into a new eight hectare people-friendly open space.
The scheme will also improve connections to the surrounding regeneration zone which was home to Hong Kong’s airport until 1998 and is now known as the Kai Tak Development.
The river is currently the main drainage channel collecting storm water runoff from east Kowloon.
A harbour front promenade, water feature, elevated walkway and pedestrian and cyclist subways are all expected to be included in the redevelopment.
The competition features a professional category and another category open to the public.
The winning professional team will take home around £32,000 in prize money. A £12,000 second prize and £8,000 third prize are also available.
The deadline for registration is 22 September and entries must be submitted before 3 November.
