Kwun Tong District Aspiration Studies

CPW was commissioned by the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) to conduct a District Aspirations Study (DAS) for the district of Kwun Tong. In addition to the URA’s “4R” principles (Redevelopment, Rehabilitation, pReservation and Revitalisation), CPW identified the historical values present in the districts in order to plan for future conservation and preservation strategies. CPW researched many of the ancient temples in Kwun Tong and Lei Yu Mun, and assessed the historical impact to the residents and tourists. The completion of the studies assisted the Development Bureau, the URA and the district councils for further urban renewal development as well as potential Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA). The completion of the studies will assist the Development Bureau, the URA and the district councils for further urban renewal development as well as potential Heritage Impact Assessment.
