     It has a site area of about 4,400 sq m with a minimum and maximum gross floor area of 15,840 sq m and 26,400 sq m. The tender invitation for the lot will open on May 28 and close on June 25. The land sale documents will be available online from May 28.
A new themed harbourfront space opened to the public
The Development Bureau announced that the HarbourChill, a themed harbourfront space next to the Pierside Precinct of Wan Chai Ferry Pier, opened recently. Formerly a works area for a large-scale infrastructure project, the 1,800 sq m experiential space is co-created by community professionals from all walks of life. It is open round the clock and welcomes pets.
     The HarbourChill features shelters, chairs and swings with diverse designs and pinkish elements, echoing the Pink Corridor in the vicinity, to create a soft and cosy atmosphere. The Hong Kong Arts Centre, in collaboration with Napp Studio, has also designed a series of zoo-themed tables along the waterfront.
     Taking on board the idea of community development, the Harbour Office has collaborated with Social Ventures Hong Kong for the first time in arranging various diversified and innovative non-profit-making activities, as well as providing food and beverages, at the HarbourChill.
     There will be a special kiosk on the lawn, selling snacks and beverages provided by a social enterprise. Goods featuring a Wan Chai theme have also been made available at the kiosk. Additionally, activities including the WE! Run@Harbour will be held this evening for participants to appreciate the harbourfront while taking part in the event. There will also be an outdoor yoga experience and art jamming this weekend.
     The installations at the HarbourChill will remain on-site for at least six months, subject to extension or adjustment having regard to utilisation conditions and user feedback.
