Kong Ha Wai Transitional Housing Project

A total of 1,998 transitional housing units is provided for low-income households

The largest transitional housing development in Hong Kong

A 428,000-square-foot parcel of land in Kong Ha Wai, Yuen Long, was offered to the Government for the purpose of developing the largest transitional housing project in Hong Kong—providing a total of 1,998 units to accommodate some 40,000 residents throughout the project period.

This initiative aims to alleviate housing pressure of low-income families, especially those who have been on the public housing waiting list for three years or more and have been living in dire conditions or with critical needs.

Modular integrated construction (MiC) was adopted to achieve liveable environment rather than a barrack-like setting. The project was completed with aluminium kitchen cabinets for durability; vinyl wall-to-wall finishes for easy maintenance; refuse collection room for better estate management; and more.
