The Kai Tak Sky Garden is an elevated landscaped deck located atop Shing Fung Road, a carriageway running along the centre of the former runway. Not only does the landscaped deck act as a noise mitigation measure, but it is also a “green connector” that links up the landmarks in the vicinity. The Sky Garden will be connected to the future Metro Park to the north, the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, the Kai Tak Runway Park and the future Tourism Node development to the south, as well as the planned developments on both sides of the garden and the promenade on both sides of the former runway. The architecturally innovative and aesthetically unique deck is the first sky garden in Hong Kong that is situated on noise barriers designed with a curved and wavy pattern. It also creates a top-quality public space and serves as a place-making icon, emblematic of the vision for Kai Tak to become “a distinguished, vibrant, attractive and people-oriented new development area by the Victoria Harbour”.
