The University of Chicago’s physical presence in Hong Kong is a major component of the University’s global footprint and initiatives, complementing international activities on campus in Chicago and at University Centers in Paris, Beijing, Delhi and other locations around the world. The University’s Hong Kong location is home for the Chicago Booth School of Business’ Executive MBA Program and executive education programs in Asia as well as a broad range of University of Chicago programming from academic departments across campus. The center is currently located at an interim facility in Cyberport, and will be moving to a new campus at Mt Davis, a Grade 3 heritage site which is now being revitalized and converted into the University of Chicago’s new campus in Hong Kong.
The Mt. Davis site is a unique heritage site, which is part of the former Jubilee Battery, with a rich and multi-layered history dating back to the early 1900’s. Preservation of this site and the development of a Heritage Interpretation Center is an important aspect of the University’s commitment to the Hong Kong government, and will be an integral part of the new campus; the University is also fortunate to be the recipient of a Hong Kong Jockey Club Heritage Grant that will support these efforts. As the Mt. Davis site represents multiple aspects of Hong Kong’s history, the Heritage Interpretation Center is intended to reflect the history of the site in an accurate and well-balanced manner.
The Heritage Interpretation Center (HIC) is located in the former Block B Annex, one of the three existing buildings of the Mt. Davis site. The HIC is a relatively small space which will house permanent and rotating exhibits to interpret the history of the site. As the architectural design and conservation of existing heritage buildings is governed by the Conservation Management Plan approved by the AMO (Antiquities and Monuments Office), the operations of the HIC and maintenance of heritage buildings will be governed by the Operations and Maintenance Plan to be approved by the AMO prior to commencing operations at the new campus.
