Wong Chuk Hang is located between Aberdeen and Ocean Park, south of Hong Kong Island. This small and unassuming area has undergone a gradual gentrification in the last few years.
Until recently the area was largely avoided as it mostly consisted of old and unsightly post-industrial factory buildings. But with space always a limited commodity in Hong Kong, many of these neglected buildings were revitalised and put to good use by a new wave of bespoke designers, artists, and trendy coffee shops and restaurants.
With relatively lower rental costs, these large floor plans with lofty ceilings that only buildings of a bygone era can provide, has become a perfect arena and impetus for the creativity and experimentation in food, art and design that Hong Kong sorely lacks and craves. Wong Chuk Hang has now become the Trendy destination that attracts scores of foodies and those looking for something different in the seemingly monotone range of products on offer in Hong Kong.
Recentlly in 2012, the new Marinella development, a row of luxury apartment blocks located right next to the Aberdeen Marina, has further bolstered Wong Chuk Hang's status as an "up and coming" area. With the new Wong Chuk Hang MTR station due to be completed at the end of 2016, the area is sure to solidify itself no longer a post-industrial eye sore, but a unique and highly sought after area to live and to work in Hong Kong.
