From the architect. Occupying an area of approximately 0.8 hectare, the construction of the new swimming pool complex involves two phases. The first phase of the works – the construction of an outdoor secondary pool and leisure pool – has been completed and opened to the publicin May 2011. The second phase of the works, scheduled to be completed in 2016, will include the provision of a multi-purpose pool, a teaching pool and a jacuzzi.

The site of the new swimming pool complex is located at the junction of Kennedy Town Praya and Shing Sai Road and bounded at the western end by Sai Cheung Street North. The site marks the entrance to Kennedy Town when approached by car or tram from Central via Connaught Road West and Queen’s Road West.

Neighbouring buildings are predominantly residential towers of up to 35 storey height. Towards the west of the Site is Belcher Bay Park which extends over one city block and provides substantial landscaped open space for the community. To the north, across Shing Sai Road is the Western District Public Cargo Working Area and Victoria Harbour beyond.

A new swimming pool complex designed to enrich the local community by providing a public facility that is easily accessible, complementary to existing public amenities and will contribute to the character of Kennedy Town; which is currently defined by the historic tram line that terminates in the heart of the community. The design brief was for an iconic structure, housing both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, Jacuzzis, changing facilities and associated management and plant rooms. Some of the key design considerations include the building’s transparency, response to existing view corridors, sensitivity to adjacent residential towers, the relationship to Victoria Harbour and an environmentally sustainable design solution.

Only phase 1 of the building has been completed. Phase 2, which is the tapered end of it, is scheduled for completion in 2015.

Am I wrong? The digital elevations are different to the building?
