SkyCity development at HKIA taking shape

The construction of SkyCity at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is progressing well, shared Lead8 – the lead design architect on the project – and is expected to be completed in phases from 2023 to 2027. The upcoming world-class, 350,000 sq m complex will introduce a new retail destination as well as a major integrated development offering various entertainment and dining experiences. 

Located directly adjacent to HKIA, SkyCity is set to be a super-regional connector accessible by air, sea, and land via trains, cars and buses. Connected by a series of sky bridges, the development is centrally linked to the Airport, Airport Express, Asia World Expo, Future Regal Hotel, and the surrounding Northern Lantau NCD sites. The project’s positioning will see it play a key role in driving the future growth of the Greater Bay Area and the Belt and Road initiatives.

SkyCity is said to be one of the most high-profile and largest commercial projects currently under construction in Hong Kong. It is set to transform HKIA from a city’s airport into an ‘Airport City’.
