Steve Yiu was Head of Town Planning of MTR Corporation and has over 20 years’ practical experience in initiating and managing the Corporation’s property development planning for integrated transit-oriented developments under Hong Kong’s unique «rail-plus-property» model, working in close partnership with the Government and private developers on the implementation of new metro projects through land value capture.
Since joining MTR in 1996, he played a lead role in the master planning of integrated development projects above railway stations/depots. Some of those projects are large and complex by world standards, such as the 1.1 million sq.m. mixed-use complex at Airport Express Line Kowloon Station, and LOHAS Park built above the railway depot of Tseung Kwan O Line, providing 25,500 homes to house some 68,000 people.
In July 2017 he was appointed as MTR’s Principal Advisor – Property Planning to provide strategic support and advice on the company’s local and international property business.
