7/19/2010 - By 2012, the fuel-soaked soil was flushed out. In June 2013, the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal was opened on the tip of the former runway. Two public housing estates opened on the northeast area of the site in 2013, providing over 13,000 new rental flats. As of August 2014, the checkerboard remains visible, though with strong natural overgrowth obscuring much of its facade. A few buildings have been erected on the north eastern part of the apron creating the Kai Ching Estate.
