Hong Kong Housing Society’s (HKHS) new housing project for older residents, Chung Yuet Lau, has been successfully completed at Jat Min Chuen in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. 

A ceremony was held to celebrate the completion of this project, which marks HKHS’ first foray into modular integrated construction (MiC). 

The development is also said to be the first steel-based MiC housing of its type in Hong Kong.  

The ten-storey development features traditional reinforced concrete construction for the ground and first floors while the second to ninth floors are constructed with steel MiC modules.  

It includes 64 age-friendly, barrier-free units, each with features such as double door viewers, low door kerbs, user-friendly fixtures, and more. 

Residential units feature thematic colour-coded corridors for easy navigation and curved wall corners to minimise accidents while the ground level houses a lounge for intergenerational activities.

HKHS chair Walter Chan said: “‘Chung Yuet Lau’ has three notable features. In addition to optimising the use of housing resources, age-friendly designs are adopted for all the units with the provision of various facilities such as low door kerbs, handrails and more, achieving the Housing Society’s objective to promote ageing in place.   

“Lifetime full rent and rates exemption will be offered to eligible ‘Chung Yuet Lau’ residents as an incentive of transfer. ‘Chung Yuet Lau’ is the first elderly housing project in Hong Kong built with steel MiC, an environmentally friendly and time-saving construction method.  

“The installation of all MiC modules for the eight residential floors of the project was completed in just five months.” 

Chung Yuet Lau previously received a total of 100 eligible applications. 

All units at the property have since been allocated following a computerised ballot drawing and a flat selection process.  

The first group of residents is anticipated to move in in the second quarter (Q2) of this year.
