Abstract

A continual increase in the demand for high-class residential estates in Hong Kong is recorded as the property market revives after years of economic difficulties. It is reported that the value of property estates in this category has increased by 40% since last year. Change of land use and development of undeveloped area are desirable solutions to meet the growing needs for deluxe residential areas. In this dissertation, Shek Mun is chosen to illustrate how to transform a green belt area to a superior residential district. Situated in Shatin, one of the most successful and popular new towns in Hong Kong, Shek Mun is an ideal place for luxurious residential development as it is surrounded by gently rising hills leading to a perfect setting for homebuyers who look for good living environment. Site formation is a prerequisite for any property development, so it will be discussed in details. This includes methodologies for site investigation, platform level design, examination of slope stability, road systems and interchange designs, surface drainage system, stormwater and sewerage system designs.
