Olympian City (Chinese: 奧海城; Jyutping: ou3 hoi2 sing4) is a shopping and residential complex built on reclaimed land in Tai Kok Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong, next to the MTR Olympic Station. It is one of the main shopping and residential areas in West Kowloon. The shopping arcades, Olympian City 1,2 and 3, were developed by Sino Land while the residential buildings were developed by MTR Corporation and Sino Land.[1]

Phases[edit]

There were three phases in the development of the Olympian City project:

Note that the nearby development of Olympic Station Package 3 (Harbour Green, developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties) was not part of the Olympian City project.[2]

Shopping arcades[edit]

Olympian City 1[edit]

Olympian City 1 is located at exit A of Olympic station, which was developed by Sino Land and completed in 2000. It covers the area of 200,000 square feet (19,000 m2) of retail space spread over three floors, with 30 plus stores. The stores include Chinese restaurants and Western restaurants, lifestyle stores, spa centres, special interests and hobby outlets.

In September 2012, Hong Kong lifestyle retail store G.O.D. in co-operation with Sino Art, held The Street Market Symphony Exhibition at Olympian City 2, their first solo art exhibition in a shopping mall. The exhibition used multi-media installations housed in large red lampshades, the iconic representation of Hong Kong's wet markets.[4]

Olympian City 3 is located in the East of Olympian City 2 with a connecting bridge in between. The nearest MTR stations are Olympic Station (Exit D) which can be reached by walking past Olympian City 2, and Mong Kok Station (Exit C4) and reached by walking along Arglye Street Westbound. The mall completed in 2011 and there are two floors with over 70 stores.

There are four main private housing estates in the Olympian City project, Island Harbourview, Park Avenue, Central Park and The Hermitage which were all developed by Sino Land and MTR Corporation. There are many other residential estates surrounding Olympian City and Olympic Station: One Silver Sea, Imperial Cullinan, The Long Beach, Hampton Place, Florent Rise, Harbour Green, Charming Garden and Hoi Fu Court.
