In order to alleviate the tension in public housing, the HA has applied for the relaxation of the high limit on the residential area of Tai Wan Road, Yau Tong, and built a 41-storey high-rise building
It has 13 floors higher than the original and provides 864 public housing estates. After the meeting, the Planning Department will not object to the smooth transition.
The policy report announced that it will expedite the release and increase the supply of public housing
The Housing Authority has earlier applied for a relaxation of a high limit on a residential site in Tung Wan Road, Yau Tong, which is 150 metres above the main level and relaxed to 185 metres. The 41-storey high-rise building, which is 13 stories higher than the original, is for 864 public housing units and social welfare facilities. It is expected to be completed between 2026 and 2028 and can accommodate 8,700 people. The Planning Department considers that the relaxation of the project ceiling can increase the supply of public housing units and does not have a significant negative impact on the surrounding landscape. The proposed water connection, fire protection facilities, parking spaces and social welfare facilities are in compliance with the requirements of the relevant departments. No objection is expected and will be approved by the Town Planning Board.
