World-renowned consulting engineers Arup will design Hong Kong’s first smart city

The firm has been appointed to conduct the feasibility study on developing Hong Kong's first smart city district. This is a flagship project and the first of its kind in Hong Kong, following the government's strategy to develop the region into a leading digital city.

Arup will consider ways to transform Kowloon East, an old district including the decommissioned Kai Tak Airport and the surrounding industrial areas, into a new sustainable CBD to support economic growth and strengthen the city's global competitiveness.

As the lead consultant of this 18-month feasibility study, tasks will include formulating a smart city framework, proof of concept trials, implementation strategy, business model, and advising on a centralised digital infrastructure and cyber security to support internet of things (IoT) and big data application.
