Old Neighborhood

Old Neighborhood in Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Old Neighborhood in Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Someone will see these older communities in Hong Kong and want to raze it and build new high rise apartment complexes. I wish Hong Kong real estate developers and especially the Hong Kong government will learn from European countries about how to re-vitalize old communities without knocking everything down.

(Please don’t tell me about Hong Kong Government needs the space to build more affordable housing for the increasing population. The nearby neighborhood’s housing price jumps from $3000 HKD per sq. ft. to $9000 HKD after it was “renovated”. Hardly the change they are advertising will happen.)
