Abstract

The entire Hong Kong SAR acts as a network of primary, secondary and tertiary Multiple Intensive Land Use (MILU) zones linked by relatively cheap and speedy public transport. The MILU forms of Hong Kong have been developed as an efficient design response within a small city-state to population growth and shortages of buildable land. However, planning guidelines and development control instruments and policies have promoted public and private sector cooperation and achieved a high degree of integration of residential, commercial and other uses. This paper discusses the design approaches in Hong Kong and examines the basic characteristics of the Hong Kong model of mixed-use development, planning mechanism and relevant policies.
