Harbour Place is a private housing estate in Hung Hom
, Hong Kong
. Formerly called Hung Hom Peninsula and built on the reclaimed land of Hung Hom Bay
, it was an HOS estate comprising 2,470 flats completed by the Hong Kong government in 2002. Since the government decided to suspend the scheme, Hung Hom Peninsula was sold to Sun Hung Kai Properties and New World
Development in February 2004.
In November 2004, the developers decided to demolish and rebuild the buildings. The environmentalists, legislators and citizens were worried about the waste pollution and strongly opposed the plan. One month later, due to public concerns, the developers decided not to demolish the buildings and renovate existing flats and upgrade facilities instead. In 2008, the extensive renovation and refurbishment of what was once a public housing estate into a luxury residential complex was completed and the flats were sold to the public.
