Considerations for Underground Space Development in other SUAs - Victoria Park

Victoria Park is the largest and the most prominent public open space in Causeway Bay. The park provides cultural, sports and recreational facilities. While our initial findings revealed that the development of underground space underneath Victoria Park could provide additional community and transport facilities to meet district demands and also retail and food & beverage uses to enhance the attractiveness of Causeway Bay as a key retail hub in Hong Kong, the implementation should be carefully worked out taking into account the interface and synergistic effects with the surrounding projects. After taking serious consideration on the holistic planning of the area, the USD underneath Victoria Park is not recommended to be taken forward at this juncture. Nevertheless, the opportunity for developing underground space underneath Victoria Park will be revisited when the future adjoining developments proceed for achieving spatial integration in a comprehensive manner.
