West Kowloon Cultural District

Stretching across 40 hectares of reclaimed land, the West Kowloon Cultural District is one of the largest cultural projects in the world. Its vision is to create a vibrant, new cultural quarter for Hong Kong – a vital platform for the local arts scene to interact, develop and collaborate – with major facilities to host and produce world-class exhibitions, performances, and arts and cultural events. It will provide 23 hectares of public open space, including a park, a green avenue and a waterfront promenade, and will be well connected with the neighbourhood.

A Development Plan for the District, based on the well-received Foster + Partners Conceptual Plan was approved by the Chief Executive-in-Council in January 2013. Construction is now underway that will see the district begin to take shape over the next decade.
