Improving Housing Affordability in Hong Kong


Simon Quail, Director, Infrastructure Advisory Practice, EY Hong Kong

Steve Lewis, Partner & Head of Infrastructure, Major Programmes and Construction Advisory, EY Hong Kong


Improving Housing Affordability in Hong Kong

Despite efforts to address the challenge of housing affordability in Hong Kong, significant progress is still required to address the needs of the population. The Northern Metropolis provides a valuable opportunity to address the housing shortage by increasing land supply, improving delivery speed, and expanding the available mix of housing. 

At this event, EY will present their paper on the potential role of the Northern Metropolis in addressing housing affordability issues in Hong Kong. The panel discussion will be focused on innovative approaches to financing and delivering more affordable housing, including inclusionary zoning, rent-to-own and build-to-rent.
