Hong Kong's Kai Tak Sports Park has released a new video documenting progress at the mega project over the summer months ahead of its projected opening next year.
The drone footage of the mega development captures work being completed across the campus at various times throughout a day in mid-summer. The video shows the progress that has been made on the main stadium, indoor sports centre and public sports ground.
“The drone footage offers panoramic views of the construction in the early morning, afternoon and evening, allowing viewers to observe the flow of activities across the expanding park facilities,” said a Kai Tak spokesperson.
“The major progress was the lifting of the retractable roof steel structure at our main stadium. The other facilities such as the public sports ground and indoor sports centre are progressing smoothly according to the plan.”
The major facilities within the precinct are expected to be completed in phases by the end of 2024, having originally been scheduled to open this year. Construction work on the project commenced in 2019.
The 28-hectare sports park is part of the redevelopment on the site of the old Hong Kong International Airport in Kai Tak. The sports park features a 50,000-seat main stadium with a retractable roof, an indoor sports centre with the flexibility to host community sports and events of up to 10,000 seats, and a public sports ground with a capacity of 5,000 seats.
Kai Tak, which will be a host venue for China’s 15th National Games in 2025, was designed by Populous and will be operated by ASM Global.
