Profile
  • Named after Sir Cho-yiu Kwan, one of the founding members of the Housing Society
  • Being the first public housing estate built with a swimming pool, Cho Yiu Chuen is an award-winning estate for its aesthetic design
  • The 39-storey Kai King Lau completed in 1981 was the world’s highest public housing building at that time
  • Built in 1978, Chung Ning Sheh was the exclusive residence designed for the senior tenants with 130 elderly flats
  • Lady Youde, wife of late Governor Sir Edward Youde, paid a visit to the estate in 1982
  • As some blocks were built along the hillside, the Housing Society built a transfer lift tower and footbridg in 2014 to enhance accessibility by the residents
