About the Site Visit
Revitalization of Staunton Street/Shing Wong Street Neighbourhood Project (“the Project”) aims to rejuvenate the 9 tenement buildings built between 1948-1959 acquired by the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) (formerly known as “H19” redevelopment project). Through-community making approach and building rehabilitation measures with its neighbourhood, the project transformed the area into a harmonious built environment for sustainable community. The project renovated a graded 2 historical building located at Staunton Street 88-90 and other low- rise tenant buildings with new initiatives being implemented that responded neighbourhood’s aspiration.
