West Kowloon Cultural District – Hong Kong’s Ultra-Connected Cultural Hub

Duncan Pescod
CEO
West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, Hong Kong



There is a growing global landscape of cultural districts across the world. The idea that the livability and attractiveness of a city can be greatly enhanced by its cultural offering is widely accepted and is the driving force behind cultural developments across the globe, from well-established cultural destinations like London to newcomers wishing to make an impact on the international stage like Abu Dhabi.

In this new cultural landscape West Kowloon stands unique for its vision, scale and potential; creating on bare reclaimed land, a modern, ultra-connected cultural district for Hong Kong, the Pearl River Delta and beyond. Located on Victoria Harbour with its stunning views and ferry connections to Macau and the mainland, well served by local MTR and bus services, fast connectivity to Hong Kong International Airport and direct access to the new high speed express link to the mainland, it is ideally situated to combine world class connectivity with world class culture.
