Kwun Tong residents recall fond memories as Old Mac set to close
Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt




on.cc

After 36 years of service, the McDonald’s restaurant at Yue Man Square in Kwun Tong is set to close in two weeks as redevelopment work at the town center gathers pace.

At exactly 8 p.m. on Aug. 30, the fast-food joint will stop serving customers, hk01.com reports.

Employees of the restaurant confirmed that that they have been told by management that they will be relocated to other stores.

Many long-time residents and office workers in the area are sad to see its red neon lights and giant Golden Arches sign dim.

McDonald’s, with its famous retro decor, has been a favorite dining and meeting place in the area since it opened in 1981. Locals call it “Old Mac”.

A regular customer surnamed Ho said he always likes to sit upstairs and look out of the window to watch the world pass by.

At McDonald’s, he could sit as long as he wants – for the price of a cup of milk tea.

Now 83, he said the face of this part of Hong Kong has changed so much over the years, citing the opening of the apm shopping mall as an example.

Students will also miss the restaurant a lot because it is here where they do their homework and group projects.

“Coming here is better than going back to school as we can talk here for as long as we like and there will be no one to chase us away,” one student said.

“At school, the teachers are always busy and we need to trouble the janitors to open the doors for us to enter a room where we can sit and talk.”

Many millennials also expressed sadness for the loss of a place where they kill time before heading home.

The project will now be developed in two phases due to clearance and acquisition issues in order to allow for the hotel/office building to be finished earlier.

The height of the tower has also been increased to 285m from the earlier approved height of 260m, and the tower will include an observation deck on the top floor.

New renders:

The office tower looks great! The residential towers are surprisingly bland though... still, a good development for the area and hopefully the office tower does end up being 285m.
