Join CitySpeak to discuss the future of Government Hill.

Government Hill, where the current Central Government Offices are, is a heritage site: It has been the seat of the government ever since the earliest days of our city.

The Administration has announced plans to sell the west half of the site to a developer for an office and retail complex after relocation of CGO to Tamar at the end of 2011. It cites the need for more office supply in Central and the land premiums it can earn to finance new infrastructure.

Others object to the demolition of West Wing and the excavation of the hill for the unnecessary waste or are concerned over traffic, conservation and public space issues. What is in the long-term interest of Hong Kong’s community?

請參加是次乙城話,探討政府山的未來。

政府山,是目前政府總部的所在地,也是一個文物古蹟群:自從香港開埠以來,它一直是我城政府的所在地。政府宣布計劃,在2011年年底時政府總部搬遷至前添馬艦基地後,出售政府山的一半,即現時政府總部西翼,為一個辦公室和零售為主的辦公大樓群。政府列舉了在中環需要更多辦公空間,和利用補地價去賺取收入以資助新的基礎設施,作為出售政府總部西翼土地的理據。社會上有意見認為反對拆除西翼和挖空政府山,因會製造不必要的浪費和對區內交通,保育和公共空間問題產生負面影響。我們因而問,哪樣才符合香港社會的長遠利益?
