HONG KONG: Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) has announced its plan for SKYCITY, a major integrated development situated just a short stroll from Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), with a strategy to expand and transform HKIA into an airport city.

Driven by a vision to create a unique new destination for Hong Kong and further strengthen HKIA’s position as an international aviation hub, SKYCITY will feature retail complexes, entertainment facilities, dining space, hotels, and office towers in its approximately 25 hectares of land at the north of the airport island.

"Our vision is to create a new destination that goes far beyond the traditional notion of a shopping mall. Located right next to the airport, SKYCITY aims to capture broad opportunities in tourism and business, while also providing a dynamic lifestyle and family entertainment hub for Hong Kong residents and visitors alike," Jack So Chak-kwong, Chairman of the AA said.

SKYCITY will be developed in phases, in partnership with developers appointed through open tenders. Phase 1 of the project will comprise a retail, dining and entertainment (RDE) destination of 195,000 sq. metres, scheduled to open in 2021, and a hotel providing 450 to 750 rooms, expected to be completed in 2020. Invitations for tender submissions for the hotel and RDE developments will be issued in November 2016 and early 2017 respectively.
