This area has been reclaimed & developed over the past 20 years. It is still a work in progress but you can see the potential to come. There are plenty of new residential buildings but they are more luxurious in style going lower rise towards the sea front. The streets are well planned & wide with bike lanes alongside. The sea front itself has a fitness track for walking, running & bikes also. The MTR has a good connection to Hong Kong island & takes only 30 - 40 minutes to the city. There are rows of retail units just preparing to open on the ground floor of the buildings with potential for lots of new restaurants, Hopefully people will realize that potential & make decent places with outdoor seating along the sea-front. There is space to do that & where else in Hong Kong is that possible. We need some nice quality places & hopefully those places from Soho & Wanchai will see the potential to invest in this area.

It used to be a place filled with garbage, aka Junk Bay. After its clean up, there are massive infrastructure and residential high rises. Amenities and its access to the MTR system is well established. There is no short of transportation if someone were to move into this area. Well done.

Not worth the time of going to Tseung Kwan O unless you have a friend living there. Formerly called Junk Bay and there is nothing much to see.

I live nearby Tseung Kwan O but not exactly in there. I hate to go there, because so many people and construction sites in that side. You need walk 10 mins to go to seaside, otherwise TKO just has building and shopping mall, not worth to visit.

Massive residential area now with a population of some 600,000. Tower block after tower block built atop mall after mall. Area is also home to landfills surrounded by residential developments..
