Latest renderings released of Populous designed Hong Kong Kai Tak Sports Park
December 22, 2020

The Kai Tak Sports Park team has today released updated renderings highlighting the design progress of Hong Kong’s new 50,000-seat stadium and surrounding precinct.

Due to be completed in 2023, the Populous designed Sports Park will be one of the world’s leading multi-purpose sports and entertainment precincts.

Revealing the new renderings, Populous Senior Principal and Director, Richard Breslin advised “we are excited to be able to share new images of Kai Tak Sports Park, to paint the picture of these world-class facilities for the community as well as for international visitors to Hong Kong.

“Nothing of the scale or level of integration between community, sports, entertainment and retail facilities designed for Kai Tak Sports Park exists anywhere else in the world.”

Designed to be a unique destination with world-class facilities and a thriving precinct for the community to enjoy day after day, Kai Tak Sports Park’s design integrates world class event venues with community sports and recreation facilities.

As a pioneering Design, Build and Operate project in Hong Kong, the design team has had the opportunity to work closely with the future operator, ASM Global, from an early stage to ensure the best experience for patrons and long-term viability for Kai Tak Sports Park.

Releasing the new images of the Main Stadium and Main Plaza, the Kai Tak Sports Park team advised of the development being “a good example of the benefits of having the operator embedded in the design process from the outset”.

The operator is international venue management company ASM Global.

The canopy above the Main Plaza links the Main Stadium with the Indoor Sports Centre, creating a large outdoor event space with the flexibility in power, technology and services to host a range of temporary events and festivals. The central opening in the canopy roof provides a view to the Main Stadium, helping to create a sense of anticipation as patrons arrive at the heart of the precinct

Darren Burden, Executive Director of ASM Global, noted that “Kai Tak Sports Park will transform the sports landscape in Hong Kong. ASM Global will bring world class sports and entertainment events and deliver an outstanding experience to fans and clients alike. The new renders provide a tantalising glimpse as to what that experience will look and feel like and we can’t wait to start delivering events.”

Located east of the Main Stadium, the Event Village offers a mix of lawn and concrete floor surfaces suitable for different sports activities or extension programs for major events.

With over eight hectares of public open space and passive recreation facilities, Kai Tak Sports Park will connect local residents with extensive outdoor areas for events and leisure together with retail and a health and wellness centre.
