SKYCITY Crosses Milestone as Airport Authority Hands over Site to New World Development

July 2, 2019 Airport No Comments Email Email

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) today handed over the second of two sites (Site A2) in SKYCITY at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) designated for the development of retail, dining and entertainment (RDE) facilities to the awarded developer, a wholly owned subsidiary of New World Development Company Limited (“New World Development”).

The handover marked another milestone of the SKYCITY development, a core element of HKIA’s vision to transform from a city airport to an Airport City. The first site for developing the RDE facilities (Site A3) has been handed over to Roxy Limited, the wholly owned subsidiary of New World Development in May 2018.

Fred Lam, Chief Executive Officer of the AA, said, “We are thankful for the Government’s full support to the aviation industry and airport development in recent years, making it possible for us to formulate and implement the vision to transform HKIA into an Airport City, including the SKYCITY development which crosses another milestone today. I hope that different sectors of the community will work together with us and the Government to continue focusing on Hong Kong’s overall economic development.”

The 25-hectare SKYCITY is located just a short stroll from HKIA’s passenger terminals, and is conveniently accessible by rail, road and a network of footbridges. Scheduled to be opened in phases from 2023 to 2027, the RDE facilities being developed by New World Development will take up a maximum gross floor area of 350,000 square metres. Leveraging state-of-the-art technology and creativity to develop unique dining, entertainment and retail elements, and combining experiences in learning, exploration and adventure, the project is poised to be the largest facility of its kind in Hong Kong.

SKYCITY enjoys a strategic location of neighbouring the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge which has significantly enhanced the connectivity of HKIA with 10 other cities in the Greater Bay Area.

With an investment of HK$20 billion by New World Development, the RDE facilities in SKYCITY will introduce an array of leading international technovation brands to the city that is set to disrupt the concept of entertainment. It will offer some brand new experience-based entertainment such as Hong Kong’s first indoor and outdoor kart track, AR and VR interactive game facilities and kids experiential zone. Under the theme of novel learning, exploration and adventure experiences, the RDE facilities will provide an extraordinary edutainment experience for both adults and children.
