• Construction starts for long-awaited Cruise Terminal

    14 June 2011

    Chief Executive Donald Tsang recently officiated at the foundation stone laying ceremony for the Cruise Terminal Building at Kai Tak, which will berth the largest cruise vessels in the world.

    Kai Tak was the former home of Hong Kong’s international airport before relocation in 1997. Tsang was joined by Acting Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Gregory So and Secretary for Development Carrie Lam.

    The Government is to fund design and construction the Cruise Terminal Building and will lease it for management and operation. The terminal and first berth will open in mid-2013. The second berth will be commissioned in 2014 after dredging works on the seabed are completed.

    The terminal will feature environmentally friendly facilities to provide world-class services to passengers, with a commercial area of 5,600 m2 and a landscaped deck with open space for public enjoyment.
