A five-hectare site in the northwest of Tsing Yi Island, commanding a view of Tsing Ma Bridge, may be used for hotel development. Tsuen Wan senior town planner Chan Wai-shun, at the Kwai Tsing and Shamshuipo district planning office, said the site at Wok Tai Wan, reclaimed as a work site for the Tsing Ma Bridge, had potential for hotel development. 'We had the idea after receiving a suggestion from the Hong Kong Tourist Association [HKTA] suggesting using the site for hotel development,' he said. The idea came in the light of Hong Kong's first movie theme park to be built on Ma Wan, an island between Tsing Yi and Lantau Island, he said. If the proposal got off the ground, one consideration was to commute tourists from the proposed hotel to the theme park by ferry, he said. 'The five-hectare site is flat and was left unused after the completion of Tsing Ma Bridge,' he said. The HKTA's preliminary concept was to build a hotel with decor drawn from different cultures around the world, he said. Whether the proposed hotel development would materialise was subject to efforts to seek financial support from private developers, he said. Hutchison Whampoa earlier said it planned to build a hotel at a 3.36-hectare commercial site in the area.
