Hong Kong Airport commissions Leslie Jones as new concourse retail architect

hong kong new concourse runway passenger terminal worldLeslie Jones Architecture has been appointed as the retail architect for Hong Kong International Airport’s new concourse.

Last year, the airport announced a new HK$141.5bn (US$182.1bn) investment to construct a three-runway system, which would include a third runway and concourse connected to Terminal 2.

Leslie Jones will be responsible for the future concourse’s commercial design strategy, ensuring that premium space is effectively planned so retailers are positioned to engage with high volumes of global travelers.

Simon Scott, head of international business at Leslie Jones, will lead the project. He said, “Globally we are seeing an increasing trend to modernize, refresh and capitalize on the retail and leisure space within our airport, which is fast becoming big business for landlords and occupiers alike.

“Our extensive experience working in both retail and infrastructure environments means we can deliver design solutions that enhance retailer-consumer engagement while encouraging dwell time and increasing passenger spend, all within an innovative space.”

Leslie Jones was appointed alongside a project delivery team that includes the scheme’s lead consultant AECOM, lead architect Aedas, planner OTC and advertising specialist Wildstone Airport.

The development of Hong Kong Airport’s new runway and concourse will reclaim 650ha of land and is expected to reach completion in 2024. It will enable the airport to handle an extra 30 million passengers every year, allowing it to meet the demand of 100 million passengers and 9 million tons of cargo by 2030.
