HK's biggest mall to open next to airport

19 May 2015 by Clement Huang

A 14-hectare shopping complex – the largest in Hong Kong – is set to attract more visitors to Hong Kong International Airport’s Terminal 2.
 
The South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported that incumbent Airport Authority board chairman Vincent Lo highlighted preliminary plans for the project’s first phase, measuring 185,806 sqm and consisting of a “hotel and retail centre over five hectares of land”.
 
As one of the first commercial centres that foreign visitors to the city will encounter, the site – to be called the Northern Commercial District – will feature international and local brands.
 
“The shopping mall will not simply be duty-free stores or outlets,” Lo told the SCMP. “It will feature local shops and elements such as dai pai dongs (open-air food stalls), where tourists and [locals] can spend a whole day.”
 
The development is planned to open in three years, coinciding with the planned 2016 completion of the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge. Lo said the mall would take advantage of the influx of visitors using the bridge, and also complement the growing passenger traffic passing through the airport.
