Seminar - “PolyU Green Deck: From Grey to Green”

  • HKIP Office Unit 201, 2/F, Prosperity Millennia Plaza, 663 King’s Road, North Point Hong Kong (map)

About the Seminar: 
The Green Deck project is proposed by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. It has recently won the “Merit” award in the Research and Planning category in the Green Building Award 2014, a biennale event jointly organized by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) and the Professional Green Building Council (PGBC).

The proposal is to build a Green Deck over the Hung Hom Harbor Tunnel Toll Plaza to bring about major social and environmental improvements to this area. The Green Deck would connect to PolyU pedestrian podium on the west and to Hung Hom Station podium on the east, creating a new platform for pedestrian activities above ground in a landscaped park of about 4.3 hectares in area.

This project would be an innovative solution to problems in Cross Harbour Tunnel vicinity such as poor air quality, overloaded footbridge, poor connectivity within the district, poor access to harbor front and lack of open space for recreation. It will not only provide people with a green open space to unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life, but also help foster sustainable development and neighbourhood improvement. A host of research studies have been undertaken by PolyU experts on environmental, social/economical, technological and development issues relating to the green deck.
