【Stories behind the pins】Wah Ha Estate
Wah Ha Estate may not be well-known to many people. Located next to Chai Wan Station, this public housing estate only consists of a single building. It was established in 2016, but its value cannot be underestimated. The building, completed in 1959, was formerly the Chai Wan Factory Estate. During the development of the Chai Wan community, many squatters and small factories were relocated to this multi-story factory building.
Over the years, the building has witnessed the industrial development history of the Chai Wan area. To preserve the remaining “H-shaped” factory building, the government converted it into public housing in 2012. A year later, the Antiquities Advisory Board designated the building as a Grade II historic building.
