Details :

The Central Market Revitalization Project is a conservation and revitalization project under the Urban Renewal Authority (“URA”), and it is also under the new initiative of “Conserving Central” by the Government. The URA commenced restoration and preservation works for this 80-year-old grade three historic building with the application of innovative restoration methods, repair materials, and project management software, in order to enhance both the work quality and efficiency. In terms of operations, the URA has partnered with Chinachem Group to jointly operate and manage this building located in the center of Central.

The URA and Chinachem Group has been working together to inject the concept of “Playground for All” into the Central Market and turn this landmark that had been in operation from 1939 to 2003, into a vibrant community hotspot that combines “Approachable”, “Energetic” and “Gregarious”, which not only preserves collective memories, but also brings new experiences to the community.
