Victoria Dockside eyes Hong Kong as a new cultural frontier

Victoria Dockside, the three-million-square-foot global art and design project along Hong Kong’s Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, is scheduled to fully open in 2019. Upon completion, the art and design district will have a Rosewood Hotel and Rosewood Residences.

Ten years in the making, the Victoria Dockside masterplan was led by Adrian Cheng and created by over 100 architectural firms, designers and consultants from across the globe, including Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and landscape architect James Corner Field Operations (JCFO).

The first to open will be K11 Atelier, a K11-branded Grade A mixed-use office tower whose interior was crafted by the Japanese Design studio Simplicity, known for creating minimalist hospitality spaces. Its main lobby has a community space with a coffee kiosk and breakout area surrounded by greenery and natural wood.

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

K11 Atelier holds two green building certifications, and its energy usage intensity is 1.5 times lower than typical Hong Kong office buildings. The façade of K11 Atelier is integrated with one of HK’s largest photovoltaic solar systems, creating enough power to operate around 220 coffee machines.

Fringing Victoria Dockside are the newly relaunched green space Salisbury Garden and Avenue of Stars; the promenade is scheduled to reopen in February 2019. These public spaces were re-designed by New York Highline designer James Corner with the participation of Hong Kong designers such as LAAB, One Bite Design Studio, Urbis Limited and Ronald Lu & Partners.
