Height Restrictions In Tsim Sha Tsui

What do you think of the height restrictions in Tsim Sha Tsui?

Updated on May 30, 2008 – SCMP

Tsim Sha Tsui is already a crowded place packed with cars and people.

The streets and alleys are small, narrow and filthy.

This kind of environment is uncomfortable and it puts people under pressure.

The more skyscrapers are built there, the more cramped and polluted a place it will become.

The imposition of the height restrictions provides people with more space.

On both sides of the harbour, views of Hong Kong’s hills are often obscured by high-rise buildings.

It is only when I get up to The Peak, that I can get a clear view of the landscape, and, in particular, the hills of the Kowloon peninsula.

The height restriction will protect the view of these hills.
