Commercial and Retail Development, Quarry Bay

2195sqm | Hong Kong

The proposals form part of the Quarry Bay office cluster and a component of the wholesale redevelopment of the district. SCENIC’s scope of works included the preparation of a Visual Appraisal and urban design statement comparing the proposed development with the existing situation and an earlier approved scheme. SCENIC developed the Landscape Master Plan, Design Statement and prepared a Tree Survey. The landscape design sought to enhance the urban setting through the creation of a multi-faceted greening effect utilising multiple levels of the development to maximise the extent of the visible greenery. This included the enhancement of the pedestrian level landscape through the creation of setbacks, new planting and the introduction of a green portal. The landscape proposals also considered more elevated views of the site from adjacent residential and commercial developments.
