Featured Property: Kingsfield Garden, Fortress Hill

The Area

Fortress Hill is an undiscovered gem, located on the harbor corner of Victoria Park and at the bottom of North Point/Braemer Hill elite school district.

It has been an overlooked area as it is between Tin Hau and North Point, but Serviced apartments Shama And Beak Residences, and the 5 star Harbour Grand have all chosen this area.  The business district on Java Road has also been part of the change.

The Fortress Hill MTR station sits on Kings Road and is accessible to the business and hotel area on the harbor front and to the residences and schools on the uphill side toward Tin Hau Temple Road

The highlight of this apartment is the distinct colonial fee with high ceilings, exposed beams, and commercial grade lighting. There is also a small balcony off the living room offering a little outdoor space. This flat is vacant and available for immediate viewing. Please contact us today to book an appointment

Our guide to understanding a converted commercial space in Hong Kong?

Sheung Wan is one of the oldest areas in Hong Kong island and has an illustrious past. On 26 January 1841, the British Marines planted the Union Jack Flag and claimed Hong Kong Island for the Crown. On Possession Street, a plaque marks this birthplace of colonial Hong Kong.

The area of Tai Ping Shan has a dark history, traditionally an area full of brothels and due to its unsanitary conditions, the Bubonic Plague ravaged the area causing widespread deaths. In fact, there are stories of bodies piling up as the officials were unable to cope. Over the years the area as changed and is has been called everything from “Hipster” to “Cafe Capital”

“This area has seen a rapid transformation over the past few years, changing from a sleepy residential neighborhood to a hangout for Hong Kong’s most stylish urban youth”

Along many of the streets in Sheung Wan, there are buildings of mixed usage ie: Commercial and Residential. Over the years many of the Commercial Spaces have become occupied as Residential dwellings. Although the government has not officially changed the permitted use they have turned a blind eye to this gray area as many of the spaces are used as home offices.

Lofty Aspirations – A closer look at a converted commercial space in Sheung Wan

Sheung Wan is an area in Hong Kong, located in the north-west of Hong Kong Island, between Central and Sai Ying Pun. Administratively, it is part of the Central and Western District. The name can be variously interpreted as Upper District (occupying relatively high ground compared to Central and Wan Chai), or Gateway District (perhaps a reference to the location where the British first entered and occupied Hong Kong).
Sheung Wan was one of the earliest settled places by the British and belonged to the historical Victoria City. The site of the original occupation of Hong Kong Island by British forces in 1842 was at Possession Street, between Queen’s Road Central and Hollywood Road. Over the past 10 years, this area has grown to be one of the trendiest areas to live for locals and expats alike featuring lots of interesting bars, restaurants, and cafes.
