Project Programme

Background


Located at No. 190-220 Prince Edward Road West, it is a cluster of 16 pre-war buildings built in the early 1930's by a Belgian construction company, also known as the "Modern Flats", targeted for middle-class families at the time it was newly completed.

Some were demolished and redeveloped after the war, leaving only 10 remaining buildings. It is the largest cluster of remaining pre-war buildings in the urban area.

The revitalised cluster now offers a mix of lifestyle shops and commercial spaces, in close proximity to the historical flower market and bird market in Mong Kok. Apart from 200 Prince Edward Road West, 618 Shanghai Street is another revitalisation project in Yau Tsim Mong District, which provides multi-function event spaces for community endearing activities.
