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?
