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.
