Note: The Hong Kong off-site programs were cancelled due to a Signal 8 typhoon advisory hoisted by the Hong Kong Observatory. The below information portrays the program as it was meant to happen.

Kowloon Station / Union Square is one of the largest and most intensive transit-oriented developments on the planet. Developed across nine phases by Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway Corporation (MTRC), the site includes transportation links across the city and to the international airport as well as residential, office, retail, and hotel programming. The mix of uses is spread across several buildings, including ICC, the tallest tower in Hong Kong; however, the station is the focal point of the development. This program will thus debate the merits and challenges of transit-oriented development – especially in the context of super-high rise buildings – and will embrace a full tour of Kowloon Station and the surrounding area, including the “Element” retail mall, the podium green roof connecting to various residential and commercial towers, and the towers themselves, such as The Harbourside.

About International Commerce Centre

International Commerce Centre houses some of the most prominent financial institutions in the world. The building is routinely recognized as a paragon of good management, from a commercial, environmental, and community standpoint.

The level of energy efficiency achieved by the International Commerce Centre is unusual for a tall building, and significant investments have been made in improving energy performance over the years, especially since adapting the ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems certification in 2011. This commitment was followed by more than 50 advanced energy-saving measures. The Energy Utilization Index (EUI) of International Commerce Centre's energy performance in 2013 was 157.3 kWh/sqm, placing it among the top 10 percent of energy-efficient commercial buildings.
