Jeff has overseen numerous special projects of New World Development (NWD) including the remodeling of New World Centre into Victoria Dockside, and the rejuvenation of Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront in Hong Kong. He is currently managing the conservation project of the State Theatre in North Point, Hong Kong.
The State Theatre is the city's last surviving large-scale theatre and currently a Grade I listed historic building. In October 2020, NWD announced a meticulous conservation project to restore the Grade I historic site. The iconic structure of the State Theatre will be preserved, and the revitalised building will be transformed into a new landmark for culture and arts in the form of a multi-purpose premier performance venue.
In this event, Jeff will take the participants back in time to revisit the history and the cultural significance of the State Theatre. He will share with us on the visions of the project, the progress of the conservation works, and he will also touch upon the challenges he faces in this project.
