"Zero-Carbon World" Preview Green East Kowloon 「零碳天地」預覽綠色東九龍

(Sing Tao Daily reported) Kowloon East project launched by the government, aiming at Kowloon East, including Kwun Tong, Kowloon Bay area activated into a new business district, to promote the greening of a number of environmental work in the area of Kowloon East. One of the project, "Zero-Carbon World", with advanced green building design as selling points, is a small pilot to be big inspiration for the future development of regional environmental direction.

Zero Carbon World has made ​​Hong Kong Green Building Award and the initial assessment for the highest certification level of green building environmental assessment of BEAM PLUS Platinum, a more general construction to reduce energy consumption by up to 45 percent.

First phase provides a wide public open space to Kwun Tong and nearby residents, and more specifically has added a tower to environmental protection and greening ideas. One of the layers, in irregular appearance reflecting of the piles of recycling waste paper on the pier, is a symbol of the reuse concept of environmental protection.  This tower has now become a landmark of the Kwun Tong Waterfront Promenade. The design concept also promotes environmental awareness, and also specifically to drip history of the cargo handling area into the new building. Therefore this is more representative of the community of Kwun Tong. Phase II will be extended from the existing Kwun Tong waterfront promenade with further region of seven hundred fifty meters. The project will be set up jogging facilities, a pavilion and cafe about to be completed by the end of 2014.
