Hong Kong Density: Pro and Con

3 thoughts on “Hong Kong Density: Pro and Con”

  1. I’m curious how the land was acquired for the local farming project. Assume it must have been very expensive being so close to a hyper city. Is it owned by a cooperative?

    I tend to agree with the second hypothesis that hyper density pushes problems outward. Some ancient hyper cities (like the Maya) appear to have cratered from environmental degradation or external shock like drought, war, etc. I don’t think humans were designed to live in beehives.

  2. Hong Kong launches $1.19 billion desal project

    Aiming to mitigate the risks posed by future droughts, the government of Hong Kong announced plans to invest approximately $1.19 billion U.S. in the development of a new seawater desalination plant. The city plans to build the new plant, which will use advanced reverse osmosis technology and will have an initial capacity to produce 135,000 cubic meters of water per day, on a 10-hectare site on Joss House Bay. Construction of first phase the plant is expected to start in 2017 and to be completed by 2020; Hong Kong has plans to double the capacity of the facility at a later date. The Hong Kong Development Bureau’s request for $19.9 million in funding for design and site investigation work is awaiting approval by Hong Kong legislators.
