Looks like development has stalled. From the photo dated April 2007 the building on the left is close to completion, yet 2 years later it still sits vacant. The plan for the site is for a cruise terminal and new residential developments.

Good to see what there doing with it now. Apparently there making it into a park and also a small plane airport.

Just like to say good riddins to loud rubbish

A visitor from Singapore posted Sun September 13, 2009:
I'm not too sure about the final masterplan for the former airport... some earlier proposals I saw called for a golf course, but most likely that strip of land will turn into a series of smaller islands and become home to waterfront commercial developments.

And those tall apartment buildings in the runway's path... emerged only after the airport closed and building height restrictions were lifted!

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 13, 2009:
If Kai Tak was open now, I would pay anything to live in that Building on the left

A visitor from - posted Sun September 13, 2009:
So sad to see a glorious airport be destroyed. they could turn it into a GA airfield, but the city probably needs the space.

A visitor from - posted Sun September 13, 2009:
Imagine landing a plane there now!

A visitor from - posted Sun September 13, 2009:
Just pave the runway again, and i'm good to go!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun September 13, 2009:
*sigh*... 5/5, but it's so sad... No more fast 747's shadows over roofs...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun September 13, 2009:
Thank you very much Caron beacause I love to have news of our old Kait Tak airport,and it make a long time that we hadn't photos of it so it's a real pleasure! Many thanks.

Does anybody know that he is going to become?


A visitor from Germany posted Sun September 13, 2009:
You can still see the Footall Ground . . . and than Imagine the Cathay 742 turning into the Runway only a few feet over Kowloon. I have never seen this and I will never see this ever in my live.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 13, 2009:
If Kai Tak ever reopens it's really going to be tough to land at. In all seriousness, this is a great idea for a photo of Kai Tak.
