The URA started to study the planning of the Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok districts in 2017. After 4 years, it finally submitted a research report to the Legislative Council on Friday. Developed for "recommended integration of streets".
Although the document does not clearly indicate the reconstruction land, the scope of the project is marked in color.
According to the URA reconstruction procedures in the past, the authorities will send people to the scene to carry out the population freeze immediately after the start of reconstruction is announced.
Chen Jianqing, a local research agency, pointed out that the information obtained by sub-divided households living in the district may not be circulated, and they are worried that they have been forced to move by the owners before the redevelopment.
Before the URA started the redevelopment process, it had pointed out the potential scope of redevelopment, and it did not rule out the possibility of "nail drop".
The URA started to study the reconstruction of Youwang in 2017 and published a report 4 years later.
The URA submitted the Yauwang District Planning Research Report to the Legislative Council on Friday. It recommended five major development nodes and listed some areas as "integrated neighborhoods", and integrated small neighborhoods into larger and more complete sites. Methods such as "street" or "killing the street" can provide first-buyers and other private residential/mixed-use developments in the future.
Scope of file frame painting
The document does not indicate the actual land use involved in the "integrated block" and the five major development nodes. It only uses color to indicate the scope, and it does not specify the work involved in the reconstruction.
However, comparing the development scope in the document with the URA's reconstruction map and the government's geographic information map can roughly compare the buildings and streets involved.
"Hong Kong 01" once asked the URA about the exact scope of the reconstruction work and the timetable for starting the population freeze. The URA stated that it will be accounted for at the Legislative Council meeting, and it has not yet been added.
Regional redevelopment plans have been announced in the past
In recent years, the URA has also announced regional redevelopment plans, including in June it stated that it would study the redevelopment of Sai Wan Ho and Wong Tai Sin, which will involve a total of 500 to 600 buildings and is expected to be completed within one year.
The URA also proposed a "Community Planning" proposal in Sham Shui Po, involving the 16 hectares of Sham Shui Po old district.
In order to prevent people from "dropping nails", that is, buying the relevant units before the redevelopment of the old building to be compensated when the building is repossessed in the future, the address of the redevelopment project is generally not disclosed in advance.
According to the URA's past redevelopment procedures, the URA will conduct a frozen population survey on the date of the commencement of the project, that is, the day when the project is gazetted.
The information obtained will be used as the basis for future verification of the eligibility of people affected by reconstruction to receive cash compensation or resettlement arrangements, and the acquisition policy will be announced on the day the reconstruction project is announced.
Our research agency worries about rebuilding "eliminate" grassroots sub-houses
Chen Jianqing, a local research agency, said that the reconstruction of the Changsha Bay Jianshanli project was announced a few days ago. The URA mentioned the reconstruction of the Jianshanli project in its blog in June 2019, and mentioned the project again in its blog in June this year. The "Urban Renewal Information System" can assist in planning work, including the incorporation of government land into development.
He believes that the incident reflects that the URA no longer minds that some people speculate on redevelopment projects, and some people even "drop nails."
He pointed out that although the Yau Mong Redevelopment did not provide a definitive area for redevelopment, it would not "open the mouth", but it does not rule out speculation in the potential redevelopment area. In addition, there are many subdivided housing tenants in the area, and they may not be immediately available. Get information about the reconstruction and worry that they will be forced to move before the reconstruction begins.
He also said that after the redevelopment, only the first home purchase unit was set up, and the general grassroots could not afford it. He questioned that the Yau Mong redevelopment was called improving the quality of living, but in fact "eliminated" the subdivided households in the area.
After redevelopment in the future, many high-rise buildings will be added to Mong Kok and Yau Ma Tei.
