Victoria Dockside is set to become a 3 million-square-foot global art and design project along Hong Kong’s iconic Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront. The ambitious and highly anticipated development is set to make waves with a ripple of exciting theatrical, art and cultural happenings. It is poised to be a new global art and design district, taking Hong Kong to a new cultural frontier.
The site was historically known as Holt’s Wharf in the early 20th century and played a pivotal role in the city’s rise to become the busiest port in the world. Forty years on, now as Victoria Dockside created by the cultural enterprise New World Development, it is set to trigger a new wave of disruptions in design, the arts, culture and sustainability. Adrian Cheng sits behind the US$2.6 billion Victoria Dockside development and recently said, “Our vision is to make waves at this world-class destination by providing a blank canvas for artists, designers and businesses to maximize their creativity and help create one of the most exciting new neighborhoods of tomorrow.
Ten years in the making, the Victoria Dockside masterplan was led by Cheng and created by acclaimed architectural firms – and over 100 designers and consultants across the globe, including renowned names such as Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), and landscape architect James Corner Field Operations (JCFO).
The entire district is set to fully open in 2019, with a new wave of announcement coming in June 2018. It will also feature an ultra-luxury Rosewood Hotel and Rosewood Residences.
