Due to the prior development during the British Colonial era, there are many of the cultural heritage in Central and Western District. For instance, Central Market. Being a very limited number of Bauhaus design in Hong Kong, the Antiquities Advisory Board accorded the Central Market Building a Grade III status in 1990. Since 2009, the government has started Central Market Revitalisation Project for this over 4,000 sq.m. building.
CONNECTING THE PAST & THE FUTURE
Established in 1842, Central Market has experienced 4 different styles and setting over the past 2 centuries. Until 1939, the 4th generation of building, which is the current building, built. It has a total of 255 market stalls and now become the starting point of Mid-Levels escalator system. Because of the needs of development, it eventually closed in 2003.
Starting from 2009, the announcement of Chief Executive’s 2009-10 Policy Address has led to the conservation and revitalisation. While maintaining the original shape, it aims to
Turn it into a leisure landmark with affordable and unique choices of retails and eateries, and open space where people can meet and hang-out.Urban Renewal Authority
