This project aims to provide affordable and adequate transitional homes to the people who live in dismal conditions and are queuing for the public rental housing for a long time.  MiC will be adopted to provide social housing units on a vacant site.  It will provide a minimum of 140 residential units integrated with supporting community space.  The saleable area of each unit is ranging from 13.4 sqm to 33.24 sqm.

2021 Policy Address

2021 Policy Address and MiC

The Chief Executive issues the 2021 Policy Address on October 7, 2021. It mentions the government will continue to implement “Construction 2.0” so as to uplift the productivity and skill level of the sector. Wider use of I&T and Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) will also be promoted to shorten construction time, reduce manpower and enhance safety in construction sites. Moreover, in order to increase and speed up the housing supply, the HKHA and the Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) will adopt the MiC and other innovative construction technology more widely. The HKHA will also adopt a new procurement model to suitable projects to allow contractors to undertake design and construction in a bundle. It is hoped that these measures can further optimise and speed up the construction process.
