Hong Kong Photo Gallery - Ngau Tau Kok

Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate was built in the 1960s to resettle residents made homeless by natural disasters and other redevelopments. The 5400 units were built with long corridors and many have lived here for decades. By 2009, 3100 households remained with almost 1/3 being seniors. The 14 residential blocks were demolished for redevelopment in 2 phases in 2003 and 2010.

Part of the site has been redeveloped into 6 towers of up to 40 storeys with over 4500 units.

A cultural centre will rise on this site.

Heading uphill, Lok Wah South Estate opened in 1982 with 6 blocks, offering 7000 units to house over 13,000 residents.

It has become a popular photography spot for its geometric playground on top of its car park.

Kwun Tong Garden Estate's history dates from the mid 1960s and has 9 towers with over 4900 units. Some units were once used as dormitories for factories and the buildings are named after flowers and birds.
