On Monday's Backchat Lantau Tomorrow AKA the East Lantau Metropolis. Chief Executive Carrie Lam has unveiled a "Lantau Tomorrow" vision, which involves a major reclamation of about 1,700 hectares yielding housing for some 1.1 million and a third economic hub for the city. Cost estimates seem to range from $500 billion to $1 trillion, about the size of HK's reserves. Would it be money well spent - a vote of confidence in the future and an asset like the airport or our new towns, addressing the problem of land supply in a bold manner that has proved successful in other cities from Singapore to Dubai? Or money down the drain, benefitting mainly the developers who are the project's main cheerleaders? We'd like to hear from you.
