Central & Western District Promenade
Food Market Section)
The project occupied an area of around 5,200 m2, including a 400 m long and 6.5 m wide promenade and four piers no longer in use.
Designing For Users
The distinctive features and historical elements of the WWFM and the four piers have been preserved in the project’s design, highlighting the characteristics of wholesale trade and history of the district. The needs of different user groups and organisations have also been taken into account in the SPS project. The released site provides venues for different groups of users and organisations to organise activities and provides open space for the use of the general public; in particular, the waterfront space can be used as performance and exhibition venues by arts groups, social enterprises and young entrepreneurs, thereby achieving the objective of sharing use of district platforms by the community.
