The HKU Museum Society is pleased to organise a guided tour of the newly revitalised Central Market with the leading project architect Vincent Ng.
Central Market Revitalisation Project is a response to the Chief Executive’s Policy Address in 2009. Urban Renewal Authority (URA) was tasked to implement the revitalisation works and turn it into a leisure landmark and open space where people can meet and hang-out. After a four-year restoration process, leading project architect Vincent Ng and his team from AGC Design preserved the original architectural flavours of Central Market while meeting current regulatory requirements. The landmark is now managed by Chinachem Group. It aims to promote Hong Kong brands and art along with its own cultural and artistic features.
