Cheung Sha Wan (長沙灣) Photos

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

My god that's a ghastly green.

I've heard that So Uk is getting replaced sometime in the future, is this true?

That looks like an older public estate, you can usually go up, there's no security in those types of buildings.

Actually, it is the other end.

There is security gate and guard at those older public estate building nowadays as well. Of course, you still can sneak in with someone else and possibly be questioned by the guard. But otherwise, you can't get in.

Yes, So Uk will soon be torn down and redeveloped along with Wong Chuk Hang. The resident relocation project is underway right now.

Most public housing nowadays have gated entry, so you need a resident's card / pass code to get through the door. However, even if you try to squeeze in somehow, there's usually a guard sitting at the entrance anyway to catch strangers, and they tend to be pretty good since they know the residents quite well.

Really, wow. I used to have a grandma live in Lok Man Estate (in To Kwa Wan) and I remember not needing anything to get up there. She's been in a home now for the past 3 years now, though. I guess times have changed...
