The Government Gazette for the commencement of the Development Project (“the Project”) was first published on 2 December 2022 and a freezing survey was conducted within the Project on the same day. A description of the general nature and effects of the project and a plan delineating the boundaries of the project was made available from 2 December 2022 for 2 months (to 2 February 2023) for public inspection and submitting objections.
The Stage 1 social impact assessment report was made available for public information from 2 December 2022 to 2 February 2023. The Stage 2 social impact assessment report was made available for public information from 19 January 2023 to 2 February 2023.

Project commenced in December 2022.
Target completion by 2031/32.
Under a “planning-led” and “district-based” urban renewal approach, the Project will integrate redevelopment (R1) and revitalization (R4) initiatives to expand URA’s continuous urban renewal works in the area.
The Project would enhance the overall accessibility and connectivity of the area and at the same time create synergy with the adjoining redevelopments for greater planning gain. The key planning objectives and proposals of the Project includes:
- Provide a new public open space (POS) of about 150sq.m. for public enjoyment;
- Open-up the Sung Hing Lane (SHL) Children’s Playground towards Queen’s Road West to enhance its connectivity and accessibility;
- Provide about 180 new residential units with commercial / retail facilities; and about 150sq.m. non-domestic GFA for government, institution or community (GIC) facilities; and
- Revitalise SHL Children’s Playground to uplift the facilities and enhance environment (subject to agreement with relevant government departments).
