Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront welcomes a brand new art and design district, Victoria Dockside
Phase one of Victoria Dockside, a brand new 280,000sqm (3 million sqf) global art and design project on the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, has been launched. The site was first developed in the early 20th century as Holt's Wharf and redeveloped as the New World Centre in 1978. Forty years on, the space has been transformed again. The first phase was launched in April by Adrian Cheng, Founder of K11 and Executive Vice-Chairman and General Manager of New World Development.

"Our vision is to make waves at this world-class destination by providing a blank canvas for artists, designers and businesses to maximise their creativity and help create one of the most exciting new neighbourhoods of tomorrow," said Cheng.
Adjacent to Victoria Dockside is the newly relaunched green space Salisbury Garden and the Avenue of Stars – the promenade is scheduled to reopen in February 2019. These public spaces were re-designed by New York Highline architect James Corner with the participation of Hong Kong practices such as LAAB, One Bite Design Studio, Urbis Limited and Ronald Lu & Partners. The district is set to fully open next year. It will also feature the Rosewood Hong Kong hotel and Rosewood Residences.
