A Comparative Study of Transit-Oriented Developments in Hong KongPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The city of Hong Kong faces limited areas for expansion, and the rail transportation system has grown to become the lifeblood of the city. In this paper, we look at the residential and commercial areas that have been built around prominent Hong Kong rail stations. Transit-Oriented Developments (TODs) are the walkable areas around MTR stations. Their sustainability and ability to properly serve the needs of residents based on social, environmental and economic aspects has not been properly assessed. We have devised more comprehensive tools to assess TOD sustainability. From this we provide a series of recommendations for new developments, as well as recommendations for improving the sustainability of existing developments both within Hong Kong and abroad.
