Hong Kong 2007 - Part 33 (Cheung Sha Wan)

During my random exploration walking tours, I came across Cheung Sha Wan, an old gritty mix of industrial and residential areas in Kowloon.

Once home to warehouses, the south side of Cheung Sha Wan connected to newly reclaimed areas and now sees the odd regeneation project, such as The Sparkle, a 2-tower luxury residential project selling for HKD$6000+/square foot.







Public housing under construction











Older tenements, albeit not as tall.









Mass public housing





















An imminent sunset at around 1700 .. winter is coming.















Kill the mosquito!











More redevelopment

They're only selling units now. It's a middle class residential development. Their sales office is in Tsim Sha Tsui. Took a look last weekend and it looks quite nice, albeit the area itself is nothing spectacular.

Ha, I was thinking more of the name being "quite nice."
