From Grey to Green

Abstract: Late 20th century has brought rapid urban development and prosperity to Hong Kong. While many local communities enjoy the fruit of success, Hung Hom, an old neighborhood on Kowloon Peninsula pays a high price of growth pains, resulting in environmental deterioration and degradation in neighborhood quality. The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, a major stake holder in this neighborhood finds that through an innovative “Green Deck” project, the current problems could be turned around to create a green and sustainable asset for the local community and the whole city.

Key words: green, sustainable, connectivity, urban growth
