City Point is a private high-rise residential development located next to the Tsuen Wan West metro station. The seven towers, 40 to 44 storeys high, are constructed on top of a common podium which houses a residents’ clubhouse, care home for the elderly and car parking floors.
WSP provided structural, geotechnical and building services engineering consultancy services.
The bored piles for the foundation had to be positioned either side of the 25 m wide metro tunnel that runs directly below the length of the development. As the tunnel was wider than the tower bocks, inclined columns were designed to transfer the building load to the 40-metre-long post-tensioned pile cap.
The project received BEAM Plus Provisional Platinum rating.
