Kwun Tong, situated on the eastern side of Kowloon, is Hong Kong's first satellite city. In the 1950s, extensive reclamation projects were carried out for industrial development, transforming Kwun Tong into an industrial district. It wasn't until 2005 that the Urban Renewal Authority proposed the Kwun Tong Town Centre Redevelopment Project, aiming to reshape Kwun Tong into a core commercial district. The project involved the construction of housing, shopping malls, transportation hubs, and more, turning Kwun Tong into a modern city center with a mix of residential, hotel, commercial, and entertainment features.
Since 2010, the Kwun Tong Promenade, a project under the Kai Tak Development Plan, has been in operation. Stretching over 1,000 meters, it provides various sports and recreational facilities, offering ample space for relaxation and significantly enhancing the Kwun Tong environment.
Kwun Tong is one of the liveliest areas in East Kowloon, with the MTR Kwun Tong Station connecting to the large shopping mall apm. Numerous shops and restaurants, along with a series of Grade A office buildings, industrial buildings, and upper-floor shops, meet the daily shopping and employment needs of residents.
One of the Kwun Tong redevelopment residential projects is Grand Central, located near the MTR Kwun Tong Station, providing convenience in transportation and shopping. Apart from the nearby Park Metropolitan, the surrounding buildings are relatively low-rise, consisting mainly of tong lau (old tenement buildings) and older structures concentrated around Yuet Wah Street. This area is relatively quiet and includes buildings such as Chi Hang Building, Chiu Kwan Building, Mascot Mansions, and Man Wo Garden Mansion.
Moving north in Kwun Tong, there are also some older buildings and public housing estates, including Cheung Wo Court, Hiu Lai Court, and Wah Fung Gardens. In the mid-level areas, there are estates like Choi Hing Court and Shun Chi Court, with lower residential density but relatively secluded locations.
