Island East, Hong Kong
People give life to a place – this is why placemaking is never just about creating a built environment, but also building a community. Often this is done through experiences that bring people together to the place: pop-up markets, cool events, art exhibitions, and so on. Well, if you work in the Island East area (where Taikoo Place is!), then these are exactly what you get. Island East has transformed from an industrial district into a vibrant, multifaceted neighbourhood that shapes and is shaped by a thriving residential and office community. Last year’s Discover Taikoo Place
programme, which featured over 60 wellness, gastronomic, cultural and business events, was a key example of how Taikoo Place continues to drive this connection through collaborations with stakeholders and partners. And from ArtisTree
’s arts and cultural programmes, to the annual Tong Chong Street Market
, to PROJECT AFTER 6
, a programme for office workers to share their musical talents with the community, Taikoo Place’s events continue to evolve to engage the community, ultimately bringing people to the neighbourhood where they can create meaningful memories together.
