Along the waterfront promenade at Tsuen Wan, there is a cluster of residential highrises at Castle Peak Road where my friend Emily from Toronto used to live growing up in Hong Kong. She pointed them out in my previous post from the pier. Castle Peak Road also happens to be the longest road in Hong Kong, running from Kowloon to the northern New Territories. The section through Tsuen Wan is known by the locals as the “main thoroughfare” (大馬路).
Recently I was in the area again and had some time to spare, so I walked over to the apartment blocks and took a few shots. Typical of newer Hong Kong housing developments, these high density apartments are like self-contained mini cities, complete with shopping malls, restaurants, schools, and everything else you could possibly need. The residence clusters are exotic-sounding Greenview Court, Bayview Garden, and Belvedere Garden – in contrast to their drab appearance.
