Roxy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of New World Development Company, has secured a contract for a commercial development in Skycity (Skycity A2 and A3 sites) of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).
The New World Development’s design and architecture team will utilise modern technology and creativity to develop unique dining and retail services as well as experience-based entertainment facilities.
The development will be the largest entertainment, dining and retail landmark in Hong Kong.
The HKD20bn ($2.54bn) Skycity, which will be located close to HKIA and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, is expected to serve as a commercial-entertainment hub for locals and visitors from overseas and the Greater Bay Area.
Skycity’s gross floor area will be 3.77 million ft², comprising 2.1 million ft² for dining and retail outlets and 570,000ft² each for experience-based entertainment facilities and office space.
Public facilities and carparks will be established in the remaining floor area.
New World Development executive vice-chairman and general manager Adrian Cheng said: “The group will inject ground-breaking creative and technological elements into the project, creating a world-class entertainment and retail landmark that combines learning, exploration and adventure.
“We are confident that we will provide an extraordinary experience for Hong Kong people and visitors of different age groups and sectors.
“Skycity’s strategic location makes the group very optimistic about the prospects of this mixed-use development project. We are confident that Skycity will become a top getaway and tourist attraction for locals and overseas visitors alike.”
Skycity, an integrated landmark project, will introduce international technovation brands to the city. It will offer 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.
It will provide a unique edutainment experience for adults and children under the theme of novel learning, exploration and adventure experiences.
The project is expected to be completed in phases from 2023 to 2027.
New World Development will be responsible for the design, development and management of the project.
