Zaha Hadid Architects announced that construction of their landmark development above the Hong Kong High-Speed Rail West Kowloon Terminus has reached roof level. The project, situated next to the West Kowloon Cultural District, aims to connect neighborhoods with a network of public gardens and landscaped plazas.

The development, which integrates with the existing station and rooftop park, includes civic, office, and retail spaces. It is located above the West Kowloon Station, a key gateway between Hong Kong and mainland China, and is near the Kowloon and Austin MTR stations, enhancing connectivity within the city.

The project features nearly 9,290 square meters of green terraces and plazas, and includes interconnected office towers at both ends. The central plaza, linked to the West Kowloon Parkway, offers sheltered outdoor spaces for public events.

The design emphasizes maximizing outdoor public space and natural ventilation while maintaining views of Kowloon’s mountains. The towers are designed with vertical shading pleats and photovoltaic panels to reduce energy consumption. The development has achieved an 'excellent' BREEAM rating and top pre-certifications from LEED, WELL, and HK BEAM Plus.

This project aims to provide new public spaces and improve well-being for Kowloon’s residents, highlighting sustainable design and innovative architecture.
