Hong Kong Housing Authority Announces Redevelopment of Choi Hung Estate

The famous Choi Hung Estate, located in Wong Tai Sin, will be up for a redevelopment study as announced by Secretary for Housing and Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) Chairman Winnie Ho.

The move is set to give more opportunities and improve the local traffic conditions within the area, as well as increase the number of flats to 9,200 from the original 7,400.

Divided into three phases, 2,500 flats are targeted to be involved in each phase and are set to be relocated to Mei Tung Estate.

Alternatively, affected residents can also opt to buy one of the 1,467 units in the Green Form Subsidised Home Ownership Scheme project within Wang Chiu Road Public Housing Phase 2.

Further details are yet to be released, and the government is set to give out more information about the rehousing arrangements after the completion of the study.

Built in the 1960s, Choi Hung Estate is known for its colourful façade, making it a popular backdrop in Instagram photos.
