MTR Corp said yesterday it had received 14 expressions of interest to build a large-scale luxury residential project above Austin Station in West Kowloon.

'We are pleased with the good response,' said Thomas Ho, a project director at MTR Corp. 'We will proceed to shortlist the eligible developers and consortiums who will be invited to submit a tender for the development project.'

It is the first MTR project to be offered for tender since the start of the global financial crisis in September 2008.
