1 A case of sustainable development

4  Hopewell centre II is located in zone of transition in Wan Chai  Adjacent to CBD  A mixed commercial-residential land use zone  Mixture of old and new buildings  Inadequate recreational land use in Wan Chai  Well-connected by Queen’s Road East and Kennedy Road in the upper slope  10-minute walk to the nearest MTR station

5  Commercial development  Conference hotel  Construction work will commence in 2010

7  Great height (315 m)  destroy the ridgeline of HK Island  Density of development is too high  Present road capacity cannot support the high traffic flow  Heavy traffic on Kennedy Road and Queen’s Road East  Poor wind circulation in the area  intensify the urban heat island effect

8  Lower in height  Will not spoil the ridgeline  Lower density of development  Less visual impact  Less burden on road traffic

9  Environmental consideration  To provide a pleasant living environment for Wan Chai residents  Receives strong public opposition concerning traffic condition / environmental preservation and cultural / heritage preservation  Public consultation has been done, e.g. discussion with district board members, setting up website to collect public opinions

10  93 storeys  315 m in height  Total floor space: 164,091m 2  2,197 rooms  270 parking space  55 storeys  210 m in height  Total floor space: 101,667m 2  1,024 rooms  168 parking space

11  more commercial / hotels  more job opportunity (4000 jobs during and after construction)  Turning Wan Chai to be a financial centre of Hong Kong  Good to have economic development in an old district  May attract younger generation to move in and revitalize the district

12  Being a landmark of Hong Kong  More recreational facilities by creating a green park for the public  Public spaces totaling 5,880 square meters (about 63,000 sq.ft.) will be provided.  Preserving the green area at the site between Queen’s Road East and Kennedy Road  spend $20 million on the conservation, plantation or transplantation of trees in the area  Widening of Kennedy Road to cope with increasing traffic  preserve and revitalize the Nam Koo Terrace on Ship Street, a Grade I historic building

13  Insufficient recreational land use in Wan Chai  Poor infrastructure, road capacity cannot support high traffic flow caused by hotel development  traffic congestion  local residents may object to it as the tall building may block the views  May also lower the price of the flat  May cause land use conflict

14  The developer has taken measures to ensure the quality of the living environment  Improving roads, widening pedestrian walkways, providing elevators, etc  Minimize the no. of trees to be cut  Preserve historical buildings  The revised plan follows the principles of sustainable city

15  Large Scale Of Development  visual pollution  Cutting large no. of trees causes greenery to disappear  Pollution is caused, e.g. air / noise / land pollution are caused during construction work  Heavy traffic may induce air pollution and noise pollution
