What's On

Major infrastructure development is on the way as part of Hong Kong's Northern Metropolis Development Strategy, which will also provide new opportunities for businesses in the city.

The Northern Metropolis plan aims to create a new urban core in the New Territories that will counter-balance the current Harbour Metropolis, accommodate the city's economic and population growth, and deepen integration with the Greater Bay Area (GBA).

Transport infrastructure will be crucial in the next two decades to facilitate the population shift towards the Northern Metropolis, and to connect the city with the rest of the GBA. Rail developments will include around 40 new stations, while new roads are also planned.

A new CBRE report provides a holistic view of the development blueprint and what it means for the city's real estate market. The report profiles the city's infrastructure plans, Hong Kong's future population growth and real estate supply, and pedestrian enhancement schemes.

Marcos Chan from CBRE will introduce the report and its key findings, and discuss what the development of the city's transport and real estate infrastructure under the Northern Metropolis strategy means for investors and businesses in Hong Kong.
