|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.
