Built on a historically important site at Mount Davis, the new facility also includes The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Heritage Campus housing, amongst others, The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Heritage Courtyard and Interpretation Centre. The Heritage Campus will be open to the public in December 2018.
