This project, completed at the WPI Hong Kong Project Center, evaluated preferred and practical locations in Victoria Harbour for marine activities and harborfront infrastructure. We surveyed current infrastructure and created criteria to analyze areas of the harbor for potential use in pleasure vessel mooring, berthing, and marine recreation. Interviewing government officials helped clarify regulations and processes for modifying the waterfront. By researching development plans, we better understood the city’s vision for the harbor. Our team assisted Harbour Business Forum and Designing Hong Kong in their effort to promote a centralized authority for managing the harborfront. We recommended area-specific changes to waterfront infrastructure and identified how to achieve these improvements.
