Sale of Industry and Trade Department Tower should be used to improve walkability of Mongkok

2015/10/27 — 14:33

After opening the new Trade and Industry Tower in Kai Tak Government has an announced the sale of the old and now vacated Industry and Trade Department Tower in Mongkok to the private sector for commercial use later this year.

I have written to the Director of Lands and the Government Property Administrator to ask them whether the future buyer will be obliged to internalize the lift and stair case connections to the Mongkok Road footbridge.

Doing so would allow the transport department to remove the staircase and lift from the pavement. This will significantly improve the width of the footway available around the building and help pedestrian circulation at street level.

By including the condition early in the sales prospectus, prospective buyers can consider the cost prior to making their bid.

Commercial developers – whether they re-use the building as is or redevelop the site – will be able to complete the project soon and contribute to making Mongkok a better place for all.
