Traditional meets modern in Hong Kong
A professional takes a break on the seawall and watches a traditional “junk” sailboat gliding by the new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal in Hong Kong, China. AECOM was hired to provide civil, structural and geotechnical engineering, building services and fire engineering, traffic engineering, environmental, acoustic and sustainable design, space planning for the cruise terminal design, as well as landscape design and construction management for the HK$7.2 billion project.
Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Victoria Harbour and built on the former runway of Kai Tak airport, this state-of-the art terminal provides a modern, remarkable cruising, dining and entertaining experience for passengers, locals and travelers. Alongside the cruise terminal will be a range of tourist facilities including hotels, malls and an aviation themed park, which provide unique leisure open space for tourists as well as local residents.
