Don's Disneyland

The government has released the four potential designs for their very own theme park by the harbour.

Members of the public have been invited to vote on their favorite design in the next two months, after which a report will be submitted to a special selection board to be chaired by Chief Secretary for Administration Rafael Hui Si-yan for a final decision.
So you can't vote for who sits in the place but you can vote on what they sit in.

The models all seem to have lots of trees and water features, which should nicely block out the massive highway that will go past the front door while keep the governed an appropriate distance away from those that govern.

It's amazing that some of these designs are quite inventive, yet, govenrment is behind them. Where are the brilliant designs for private housing? For that matter, where is the brilliant design in public housing?

Private property firms linked up to public need a bit too much? Therefore, they pursue the lower cost construction of even the high end luxury buildings? Do you like my consipiracy theorizing?

I'd bear in mind that what is one the design table often is not what is built. Once this has been through a few committees it will look very different.
