建築師為香港提出的「藍塘」新市鎮

建築和城市設計公司Farrells提出在香港東部發展一個名為「藍塘」的概念性新市鎮。由於人口增長及土地匱乏,藍塘被打造成香港持續發展的契機。

根據Farrells分析,藍塘可容納35萬名居民,並提供商業和工業發展空間。與其他土地供應建議相比,該公司認為約800億至1,000億港元的成本是非常不錯。

Farrells董事Stefan Krummeck認為:「藍塘可根據城市的需要分階段實施,是一個可持續和靈活的土地供應解決方案。」

建議在杏花邨興建一條新的過海隧道,把港島綫連接現有的將軍澳工業邨及將軍澳第137區填料庫。基於這個方案,Farrells提議開墾212公頃的新土地,而與現有土地合併後,藍塘新市鎮將共有688公頃土地。

提議的整個填海工程都在維多利亞港以外進行,只會改變人造海岸線,不會影響到郊野公園。

Architects propose “Nam Tong” new town for Hong Kong

Architecture and urban design firm Farrells has unveiled new images of a conceptual new town called “Nam Tong” in eastern Hong Kong. In light of rising population and a scarcity of land, the Nam Tong proposal is intended as a means for Hong Kong to grow sustainably.

According to Farrells, Nam Tong could house 350,000 residents and provide space for commercial and industrial development. It would cost between $80 and $100 billion Hong Kong dollars, which the company says compares favourably with other land supply proposals.

Farrells director Stefan Krummeck commented: “Nam Tong is a sustainable and flexible land supply solution. It can be implemented in phases according to the city’s needs.”

The proposal involves building a new cross-harbour tunnel at Heng Fa Chuen to carry the MTR’s Island Line to the existing Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate and Tseung Kwan O Area 137 Fill Bank. Here, Farrells proposes carrying out reclamation of 212 hectares of new land. Together with existing land, the Nam Tong new town would be built on a total of 688 hectares.

The proposed land reclamation would affect artificial shorelines only, and would take place entirely outside Victoria Harbour. No country parks would be affected by the development.
