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]

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]
