1-2 & 9-10 Yu Lok Lane


As part of the public open space to be provided in the "Third Street/Yu Lok Lane/Centre Street Redevelopment Project", parts of the building relics and elements as identified in tenement houses at Nos.1-2 & 9-10 Yu Lok Lane were preserved and integrated as landscape design features.  Nos.9-10 Yu Lok Lane was preserved as feature pavilion to celebrate the ambience of Yu Lok Lane.  The stone retaining wall along the lower part of No.1 Yu Lok Lane and the steps from Centre Street were incorporated as landscape design features of the public open space.

11-12 Yu Lok Lane


Sitting next to the feature pavilion of Nos. 9-10 Yu Lok Lane, bulidings at Nos.11-12 Yu Lok Lane were conserved for adaptive reuse.  With the conserved 'Character Defining Elements', for example: timber french doors, timber french windows and narrow projections, these 2 groups of tenement houses illustrated the typical character of Chinese tenement buildings of the early 1900's, and helped to define the ambience of Yu Lok Lane.
