Even though Hong Kong is well known for its waterfront views, Victoria Harbour uses little of its waterfront to the fullest potential. From past research, we identified four main qualities essential to a beneficial harbour-front: accessibility, connectivity, quality and design/maintenance. After observing forty-eight sites around Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour, we indicated both positive and negative qualities that added or detracted from the site's vibrancy. We found that a mix of facilities, amenities and activities at water's edge can make Victoria Harbour a more popular destination for both residents and tourists. Our report presents findings and suggestions for the improvement of Hong Kong.
