Read part one, on the private sector’s role in sustainable urban development, here. When it comes to sustainable urban growth, Hong Kong has been a noted success story and possible model for mainland China and other emerging economies.

This publication outlines four compelling cases for developers to invest in open space. Each case is supported by research and project briefs, and insights from developers, public officials, and others working at the intersection of open space and real estate development.

The Urban Land Institute, or ULI, is a nonprofit research and education organization with regional offices in Washington, D.C., Hong Kong, and stated mission is "to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide".

ULI advocates progressive development, conducting research, and education in topics such as Location: Washington, D.C.

Recent years have witnessed, almost universally, increasing urban inequalities and stagnating consumption shares of lower-percentile households, with Hong Kong, China registering one of the highest Gini-coefficients observed in any other part of the developing and developed world.

According to Hong Kong + study, the land requirement for the next 30 years will be no less than 4, ha. Taking into account the land supply of 3, ha or so from committed and planned developments, Hong Kong will still face a land shortfall of at least 1, ha in the long run up to (see Figure 11).

The grave shortage of land suitable for development has always been a major constraint on urbanisation in Hong Kong. Rather lax or inappropriate planning controls in the past have resulted in haphazard city growth, leaving extensive areas of densely-packed tenement slums.

Recent sluggish attempts at urban renewal have brought little relief. The objectives of. formation of the Land Development Corporation (LDC), urban renewal was primarily left to the private sector. The formation of the Housing Society in (incorporated by ordinance in ) to provide affordable housing and the establishment of the Hong Kong Housing Authority in to meet the housing needs of low income families.In many densely developed urban areas, Hong Kong is experiencing heavy pedestrian and traffic flows leading to a congested street environment.
