As I power on to the Mid-Level Escalator, I see the Central District Police Station, adjacent to the former Central Police Station, former Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison, all declared monuments in Hong Kong.
The heritages have been closed for a revitalisation project which will see them transform as a new heritage hub for art, culture and leisure under the new name Tai Kwun. Unfortunately, the redevelopment programme has been halted after a wall at the former Central Police Station collapsed last month. Passers-by can only take pictures from the outside and hope for the day it reopens – only who knows when.
