Message from GPD Chairman (July 2023)

Northern Metropolis
Hong Kong is currently undergoing a period of rapid development and one of its key initiatives is the Northern Metropolis. This includes the San Tin Technopole, which covers the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation & Technology Park at the Lok Ma Chau (LMC) Loop and San Tin Town Centre. The Government aspires to develop the Northern Metropolis into a “new international I&T city”.

In October 2021, the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) and Planning Department (PlanD) jointly commissioned a study to formulate a recommended outline development plan (RODP), which proposed land uses for San Tin Technopole. Together with 87 ha of the LMC Loop, San Tin Technopole covers a development area of 627 ha. The RODP is currently open for public comments until 5 August 2023.

The HKIS is closely monitoring the Northern Metropolis project and a joint professional institute task force has been formed to provide constructive feedback to the newly-established Northern Metropolis Coordination Office.
