Redevelopment of Ming Wah Dai Ha Phase 1Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong
Ming Wah Dai Ha (the Estate) was one of Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS)’s oldest rental estates built in the ’60s & ’70s. It consists of thirteen residential blocks standing in an orderly row on a strip of land in a north-south orientation along A Kung Ngam Road, Shau Kei Wan. The whole redevelopment is divided into 3 phases. All existing blocks are to be demolished and replaced by residential towers containing over 4,000 units.
Phase 1 Redevelopment involves the demolition of three existing 9-storey residential blocks at the southern end of the lot, namely Blocks K, L & M, and the construction of two residential blocks with over 900 units atop a sunken/semi-sunken carpark on the vacant land after demolition. Phase 1 design will incorporate new features in response to the needs of the residents, e.g. sky gardens and landscaped walking trails, while the memory of the old estate will also be preserved by displaying existing feature items in the new memorabilia garden.
