A plan by Sun Hung Kai Properties to build a residential complex with schools and sports facilities on a church site in Tuen Mun has run into objections from a district councillor who has complained about the high density of the project. The developer wants to build five residential blocks of up to 43 storeys providing 1,440 units on the 310,972 square feet site that belongs to the Church of Christ in China on Castle Peak Road, near the Hoh Fuk Tong light rail station. The plan, which includes a primary school, a secondary school for the church and an indoor sports complex, has been submitted to the Town Planning Board and will be considered within two months. However, Tuen Mun District Councillor Kwu Hon-keung objected to the application when it was discussed by the council yesterday and urged the Planning Department to reject it. 'The height of the five residential blocks is about 140 metres in a high-density area. It would make the existing traffic problem more serious when the project is completed. The residents will have to suffer air and noise pollution problems,' Mr Kwu said. The Planning Department said it would relay the concerns of the council to the Town Planning Board. The Church of Christ in China first reached a development agreement for the site with Kerry Properties in 1997 but ran into problems over plans to demolish the 70-year-old Morrison Building, which conservationists wanted to preserve. It took until 2004 for the dispute to be settled with the building, which occupies 5,100 square feet of the site, being declared as an historical monument. By then, Kerry had dropped out and, after the decision to preserve the building, the church retendered the project to develop the surrounding area. The Morrison Building was originally part of a villa built in 1936 by Nationalist general Cai Tingjie, who led the famed Nineteenth Corps against the Japanese forces.
