Details :

The planning and construction of a development immediately above a running railway are very complicated and hazardous, and is normally a precarious venture that most professionals would wish to avoid.


At 御龍山 (The Palazzo) in Fo Tan, such an attempt was made successfully to turn an open railway depot along with a 24-hour running railway line into a multi-storey residential complex.  The project took more than 8 years to plan and build, and the difficulties encountered during the process are numerous, involving complicated safety issues as well as political arguments.

As one of the prime initiator and the implementer of this project, Sr Lam is going to share with all members attending this CPD event his experience during those years.
