This is a revitalization project comprises a total of 14 building numbers at Nos. 600 to 626 Shanghai Street, Mongkok. They include 4 post-war residential buildings and 10 pre-war shophouses which had been accorded Grade 2 Historic Buildings by the Antiquities and Monuments Office in 2010.

In view of the poor physical condition of the pre-war shophouses, a considerable portion of the buildings will have to be reconfigured to comply with current statutory building, structural and fire safety requirement as well as modern building services requirements.

Whereas, in order to preserve the historical ‘ambience’ of the shophouses, the entire façade including the cloister, overhanging balconies and key architectural features of the pre-war Grade 2 historic buildings facing Shanghai Street will be preserved and the existing building height profile was maintained.
