New Buildings V1.2
Provisional Platinum

The proposed commercial development at NKIL6557 is consisting two separate parcels under the same lot, a pair of twin buildings emerges as an Iconic Gateway overlooking Kai Tak City Center and Station Square at the front, introducing a new experience to public with the aesthetics and spatial quality delivered. Moreover, this iconic development is committed to contribute to the public by introducing user and environmentally friendly facilities and accommodation. The goal is to provide a convenient, sustainable all-in-one commercial hub benefits to all public users and neighborhood in the Kai Tak City, and also the East Kowloon District.

Story

Apart from the characteristic architectural design, this development is expected to serve as an iconic building in Kai Tak area through considerate green and environmental design measures to promote sustainability by implementing below elements into the district:

Pedestrian & Environmentally Friendly Facilities:

  • “Podium-free” design concept is adopted to enhance air ventilation and view corridor in the street environment;
  • Considerable amount of site area constitutes Non-Building Area with plentiful open spaces and landscaping. They are connected with surrounding LCSD parks through aligned barrier free footpaths and planters with coherent species. A pedestrian friendly network is promoted;
  • Abundant greenery is proposed at pedestrian zone which helps to improve the air quality and promotes micro-climate at street level;
  • A stepping cascaded massing concept was adopted unlike traditional monotonous massing. It creates voids and space for capturing prevailing wind;
  • The stepping cascaded massing design creates plenty of picturesque landscaped terraces, sky-gardens and flat roofs which allow visitors to experience the unique views at different levels from different angles. These elevated outdoor spaces are equipped with planters and green wall, enhancing the quality of urban environment.

 

Energy-Saving Strategies:

  • Stone and glass are evenly distributed on the external façade. This design approach allows variety of solid and transparent materials on elevation and therefore reducing heat gain. Besides, all materials allow minimized reflectance to avoid causing glare to the neighborhood;
  • Low-E insulated glass units are adopted for the building to enhance solar heat insulation of building envelope, and therefore reducing energy consumption of cooling;
  • All vehicular car parks are located at the basement floors with electrical charging facilities to control and minimize air nuisance to the nearby parks and open spaces;
  • Public parking spaces are dedicated to coach bus parking, encouraging participation of public events at the Kai Tak sports stadium and the use of public transportation;
  • Bio-Diesel generators are employed to reduce consumption of resources while promoting renewable energy.
