Development Bureau - Optimising the Use of Industrial Buildings

Skip the animation
The Government announced in October 2009 a set of revitalisation measures to facilitate the redevelopment and wholesale conversion of older industrial buildings. These revitalisation measures came into effect on 1 April 2010. They aim at providing more floor space for suitable uses to meet Hong Kong’s changing social and economic needs.

Following a mid-term review on the revitalisation measures completed in September 2011, several refinements to the measures were introduced and the deadline of application was extended for three years, from 31 March 2013 to 31 March 2016.

Pursuant to the 2013 Policy Address, further refinements to the revitalisation measures were introduced in October 2013. The refinements would help address certain difficulties and problems faced by applicants of wholesale conversion and redevelopment of industrial buildings.
