Hong Kong housing

In crowded Hong Kong, can there be any ghost towns?

I refer to your columnist David Dodwell’s article on ways to make Hong Kong a liveable city (“Hong Kong’s plan to become a smart city needs some fresh thinking”), where he calls Lohas Park a “ghost town”.

This could not be further from the truth. In fact, I am not aware of any ghost towns in Hong Kong, given our notorious shortage of housing. I guess it would be nice to have some for spare capacity. 

With respect to Lohas Park, I can assure your columnist that it’s fully occupied.
