Similarly, such art studios should not involve direct provision of services or goods due to fire safety concerns. Similar amendments would be made to other OZPs in future when opportunities arise. Furthermore, on June 16, 2017 the Town Planning Board agreed to make corresponding amendments to the Master Schedule of Notes to Statutory Plans, which will serve as a clearer guide to future amendments to other OZPs. Industrial land, including that for industrial buildings, provides space to support the sustainable development of Hong Kong’s diversified economy. That said, in considering ways of relaxing restrictions on non-industrial uses in industrial buildings, one of the most important considerations is whether the relevant measures would constitute significant safety risk. The Government cannot compromise public safety for accommodating individual industries.
Research and development spaces are usually a mix of office, testing areas and smaller warehouse space, depending on the needs of the tenant. They usually require slightly more power than typical flex space for testing equipment and can sometimes be highly specialized. Unlike most bulk distribution warehouses, manufacturing buildings often have highly specialized infrastructure and finishes, including heavy electrical power. Depending on a company’s needs they may also have user-specific drainage, ductwork, ventilation systems, oversized loading docks, and water, gas or chemical lines. However, more and more tenants are adding air conditioning to their warehouse spaces in order to attract employees in the Texas heat.
A large number of companies and individuals were involved, each contributing their specific area of expertise to create a single, superlative design. The architects for the project were selected by means of a design competition and the winning entry was submitted by a partnership of three firms. The main structure, various original features which have been carefully preserved and the new additions make use of ‘honest’ materials such as black steel, concrete, glass and wood, applied over large surfaces. This will mean a planning application will be needed for development which normally does not need one.

Potter, meanwhile, reflects that it would be nice to keep the building as is in the new development. When the time comes, hopefully the developers will see the value of not only retaining some of London’s industrial brutalist built heritage, but of embracing a ready-made creative workspace hub, instead of knocking it down and starting again. As is unsurprisingly inevitable in London, however, all this is set to change, when in 8–10 years, a new road tunnel is built connecting this spot to North Greenwich, and a swathe of residential development follows suit. If there is an architectural structure emblematic of the nineteeth-century European Industrial Revolution it is surely the large, majestic train shed. Landmarks of how advances in industrial production were shaping architecture, transport and cityscapes, train sheds were immortalised in paintings such as Monet’s Gare St-Lazare series . Now, from London’s King’s Cross to Paris’ Station F, they are the triggers for wide-ranging regeneration schemes.
