Kwun Tong Promenade

Kwun Tong Promenade (Stage 1)

(I) Background
The Kwun Tong Promenade (Stage 1) is the first open space project under the Kai Tak Development. According to the "Approved Kai Tak Outline Zoning Plan", this section of the Promenade will integrate with Cha Kwo Ling and the new Kai Tak development area with a view to meeting public expectation of waterfront enhancement and giving a new impetus to the revitalization of developed areas in Kwun Tong.

The Kwun Tong Promenade (Stage 1) project commenced in March 2009 and was completed in end 2009 with a total area of 7 340 m2 and a construction cost of HK$19.6 million. Funded by the Civil Engineering and Development Department, the Promenade is constructed by the Architectural Services Department and managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. On the other hand, the Kwun Tong District Council also takes up the project cost of some HK$ 3 million for dismantling an enclosure wall under the Kwun Tong By-pass and undertaking paving works.

Linking with Stage 1 promenade is the Kwun Tong Promenade (Stage 2) that extends to the remaining area of the Kwun Tong Public Cargo Working Area (PCWA) after its fully decommissioning. The project commenced in February 2013 and was completed in end 2014. Opened to the public in May 2015, the Kwun Tong Promenade (Stage 2) embraces an area of nearly 3.4 hectares. It soon became an attractive place exceptionally well received by the public.

(II) Facilities
The Kwun Tong Promenade (Stage 1) offers the public with a great variety of facilities, such as a 200-metre long seaside boardwalk of wood decking, a multi-purpose plaza with lighting/music and mist effects, a special tower landmark, a performance stage plus a spectator stand with 200 seats for holding events or functions, a children's playground, landscape and amenity facilities etc. The Kwun Tong Promenade (Stage 2) adds a boardwalk of 750m with sitting out areas, PV shelters, fitness station, elderly fitness corner, featured towers, sensory garden, cafe etc. There is also a mist feature with animated lighting and sound effects.

Automatic light shows will be available at the multi-purpose plaza every half hour from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. While the tower light displays the changing colours and flickering with the rhythm of background music, the mist piazza and the vibrant floor track lighting along the Promenade combine to produce unparalleled visual effects. The Promenade also stands a special tower landmark whose design concept is originated from the heaps of recycled paper at the original pier. The pier is formerly the loading/unloading area for paper recyclers. In working out the configuration of the tower, the designer has captured the image of recycled paper lying about at the pier in the shape of "twisted" cubic heaps. Based on a theme of recycled paper, the design also embodies the idea of "turning decay into miracle". The designer has succeeded in promoting the go-green concept while bringing in a touch of uniqueness to this brand-new landmark in Kwun Tong.
