Cen­tral Po­lice Sta­tion Fall­ing Apart

HK Magazine - - NEWS -

One of the old­est walls com­pris­ing the former Cen­tral Po­lice Sta­tion on Hol­ly­wood Road col­lapsed on Sun­day night. Thank­fully, no in­juries were re­ported. The de­clared mon­u­ment is part of a her­itage re­vi­tal­iza­tion pro­ject by the govern­ment and the Hong Kong Jockey Club. In a re­cent re­port to the Cen­tral and Western District Coun­cil, the govern­ment said that two of the three build­ings—in­clud­ing the build­ing with the col­lapsed wall— that com­prise the com­plex were “in a rel­a­tively poor con­di­tion” and “may re­quire more time for restora­tion.” Cen­tral and Western District Coun­cilor Ted Hui said shops were al­ready sign­ing con­tracts, and the sud­den col­lapse brings into ques­tion the over­all safety of the pro­ject. The re­vi­tal­ized site is set to open to the pub­lic later this year. Our take: Col­laps­ing struc­tures seems to be a thing now, huh?
