Victoria Dockside is a property development on the waterfront of Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong near East Tsim Sha Tsui station.[1][2][3] The development opened in stages between 2018 and 2019[4] at a cost of US$2.6 billion.[3] First founded in 1910, the site was originally known as Holt's Wharf.[5][6]

The development includes K11 Musea, a shopping centre; serviced apartments, office space, and a hotel. The development is home to a 284-metre skyscraper designed by architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox; it is currently the 8th-tallest building in Hong Kong.

Background and history

The site was developed in 1910 as Holt's Wharf. It first acted as a railway hub and was once considered one of the world's major ports. In 1971, the site was sold to New World Development, which developed the area during the 1970s commencing the construction of the New World Centre and the Regent Hong Kong (later renamed InterContinental Hong Kong).[4][7]

The project was completed in 1982, and also included a shopping complex, residential, offices and apartments. The New World Centre was considered one of the largest commercial complexes in the world during this time. The site became popular amongst locals and tourists, and hosted numerous events including the LEGO International Exhibition and Hong Kong-Beijing Rally.[5]

In 2010, New World Development closed the New World Centre for demolition. In 2012, it started the development of the Victoria Dockside, which was named after Victoria Harbour as well as the site's former name, ‘’Holt’s Wharf’’. The project was led by Adrian Cheng, and includes participation of over a hundred international and local architects and designers. The development was completed in 2019 and includes Rosewood Hotel and residences.[1][4]

In 2021, the shopping centre (K11 Musea) temporarily closed for cleaning. All workers will undergo mandatory testing for Covid-19 as there has been a growing outbreak of the coronavirus disease the Chinese restaurant, Mr Ming’s Chinese Dining, at the shopping centre.[8]

Design and architecture

The building's site plan was designed by architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), as well as architect James Corner Field Operations, Ronald Lu & Partners, LAAB Architects, and PLandscape.[9] [10]
