|Kai Tak Cruise Terminal Building, Hong Kong|
(In associated with Foster + Partners)
Occupying a 7.6-ha waterfront site at the southern end of the runway of a former airport in East Kowloon, the HK$8.2 billion infrastructure project is the key to developing Hong Kong into a regional cruise hub in Asia and enhancing its position in tourism. The 2 berths of the Terminal can accommodate the largest cruise ships (up to 220,000 gross tonnes) in the world, whilst the building itself offers ample space for passenger check-in/waiting and baggage handling so that cruise guests can check in and collect their baggage efficiently and comfortably. Five boarding bridges, manufactured in Spain, can be flexibly used along the two berths. The highly efficient customs, immigration and quarantine (CIQ) facilities will be able to clear 3,000 passengers per hour.
The project has been given a provisional Platinum rating under BEAM Plus and a Merit Award by The Hong Kong Green Building Council in 2012.
Total GFA: Approx. 72,000m2
