Un Chau Street Estate Phase 3
This development is located in Cheung Sha Wan and is one of our recently completed urban renewal projects. The site was previously occupied by an aging public housing estate, which is being redeveloped into a new residential neighbourhood consisting of public resting areas, a shopping centre as well as a Housing for Senior Citizens complex. The development is close to the Cheung Sha Wan MTR and is easily accessible.

The two-storey shopping centre uses linear planning to maximize frontage on Un Chau Street, to echo the shop environment on the street. Glazed atriums at both ends form inviting gateways to the shopping centre. They are joined by a central arcade and a footbridge for easy access to the residential blocks. The centre also acts as a noise barrier for the residential areas of the development. The Housing for Senior Citizens complex is located on top of the shopping centre, with all units circling three internal courtyards. Designed as a "community", the complex creates an environmentally-friendly retreat away from the noise and bustle of the city.
