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
“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.
The result is that many forward-thinking buyers have been snapping up old commercial spaces and converted them into Lofts. Many enjoy high-end renovations and excellent rental returns.
