About The Scheme

Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme

Importance of Heritage Conservation

Heritage bears witness to the development of our city and is a valuable and unique asset of our community. Hong Kong being a civilised and developed society, our citizens aspire for richness in life through links to our past and building a sense of identity through conservation of our heritage buildings.

Balancing Conservation And Development

Development and conservation are not opposing forces. We strive to strike a balance between sustainable development and heritage conservation. As one of the many measures to enhance heritage conservation, we will continue to adaptively re-use suitable government-owned historic buildings under the Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme (Revitalisation Scheme).

Adaptive Re-use of Government-Owned Historic Buildings

We are committed to put our historic buildings to good adaptive re-use. We aim to give these buildings a new lease of life for the enjoyment of the public.
