    The OUHK won the land bid  

The Open University of Hong Kong has been successful in the application for a land grant at Ho Man Tin Chung Hau Street to operate self-financing full-time, locally accredited degree programmes. A new college will be established to offer 2,400 places in three subject areas – cultural and creative arts, testing and certification and medical services, contributing to the development of three of the six major industries promulgated by the Government. A new 12-storey green building is expected to be constructed in mid-2011 and completed in late 2013.
