About the CPD Talk
Heritage investor turned conservation enthusiast Vanessa Ho will share her journey from inadvertently purchasing a Grade III heritage building in 2018, to restoring it and establishing the Lion Rock Heritage Foundation to preserve other privately owned heritage buildings in Hong Kong. She will share on the importance of measuring the social value impact of a project with a practical example, and challenges all attendees to participate in advocating a change in the existing narrative that it is neither physically nor financially viable to preserve old buildings in Hong Kong.
