Transitional Housing at Sheung On Street, Chai Wan

Sheung On Street, Chai Wan

In order to respond to the housing needs of the grassroots, the Society for Community Organization (SoCO) applied to lease a piece of land on Sheung On Street, Chai Wan, near Tsui Wan Estate and Tsui Lok Estate from the government in the form of a five-year short-term lease for this project development. The project is the first MiC transitional housing on Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong that will be completed by the end of 2023 at the earliest, providing a total of 103 units, including 102 one- to two-person family units and one barrier-free unit. Each unit has an independent kitchen and toilet, and with window to ensure sufficient ventilation and light. 

 

Residents of subdivided housing at the grassroots level will be given priority in the recruitment targets. 80% of the places will be allocated to applicants who have been waiting for public housing for three years, and the remaining 20% will be applicants who have been waiting for public housing for less than three years or who have housing needs. It is expected that there will be about 210 applicants with urgent housing needs benefit on the project.

The Chief Executive's 2022 Policy Address

To foster the development of MiC

The Chief Executive delivered the 2022 Policy Address on 19 October. To enhance Quantity, Speed, Efficiency and Quality, the Government will increase public housing and land supply by different measures, including the building of Light Public Housing by MiC to shorten the waiting time of public housing. The Housing Authority and Housing Society will adopt the MiC in more public housing projects. The DEVB will establish a cross-departmental steering committee, to streamline approval processes, and also making available land in the Northern Metropolis for manufacturing and storage of modules.
