Submission for 7 Historic Buildings

The Development Bureau has received 114 proposals from various non-profit-making organisations for revitalising the first batch of seven historic buildings under the "Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme".

The number of submissions for each historic building is as follows:

   
Old Tai Po Police Station:
23
 
Lui Seng Chun:
30
 
Lai Chi Kok Hospital:
10
 
North Kowloon Magistracy:
21
 
Old Tai O Police Station:

Fong Yuen Study Hall:

Mei Ho House:

The revitalisation plans submitted propose a wide range of adaptive re-use for these historic buildings, including museums, galleries, education centres, training institutes, hostels and restaurants.

The Commissioner for Heritage's Office in Development Bureau has set up special teams to examine and assess these proposals. The assessment process was completed in February 2009.

The assessment was done with the help of the Advisory Committee on Revitalisation of Historic Buildings comprising mainly non-official members set up in May 2008 under the chairmanship of the Honourable Bernard Chan.

All acknowledgement letters have been sent out to the applicants on or before 30 May 2008. For enquiries, please call our hotline at 2848 6230 or e-mail to rhb_enquiry@devb.gov.hk.
