A major feature of the Precinct is the first “Harbour Steps” in the Victoria Harbour, which is the first fence free stepped down water edge design within the harbour. Located in the Phase II area of the Precinct, the Harbour Steps has a length of approximately 90 metres, fronting a 2.5-hectare water body separated by a breakwater.

The step-like feature allows visitors get closer to the waterbody. when there are water sports activities or performances in the waterbody, the “Harbour Steps” also serves as a spectator stand for the public to watch competitions or performances from a close distance in the backdrop of the Victoria Harbour. An access ramp for boats has also been installed to facilitate future water sport competitions.

To enrich the visitors’ experience, local artist Prudence Mak has designed a set of art installations and decorations under the theme of Chocolate Rain and water sports, the most eye-catching of which is a 20-metre painting located on the “Harbour Steps”, allowing the public to enjoy the art work from another perspective across the waterbody.

Another feature is the on-shore restaurant and floating restaurant in the Precinct to enhance the experience of the public at the harbourfront. The floating restaurant is docked at the waterbody of the Precinct and is mainly be used for banquets and events, while the on-shore restaurant provides indoor, rooftop and alfresco dining areas where visitors can enjoy the wonderful view of the Victoria Harbour.
