Abstract

Transit-oriented development (TOD) tends to gather more people closer to the stations of public transportation. Frequently, the TOD model interfaces with the high-rise buildings to achieve high-density and mixed-use schemes. This chapter examines the relationship between high-rise buildings and TOD in Hong Kong. Four types of the TOD model are identified: "plug-in" in the old city; city-edge; "one building" TOD; and suburban TOD in the new area. The main factors of TOD in these four types are presented and compared. © Institution of Engineering and Technology.
