City Getting Chopped Up By Hong Kong’s “Urban Planning”

It would have been a much more aesthetically-pleasing and smooth walk between the two plazas if they face directly to each other. Urban planning Authority in Hong Kong simply chops up the land and lets each developer “take care” of the development.In terms of math, this lazy method is the most profitable for the government because minimum public infrastructure is needed.

Sadly, the lack of co-ordination between developers end up producing lots of odd and unpleasant spatial experience. If the government does not take up the responsibility to plan WELL for the taxpayers, why do we need them?
