Healthy Village (Chinese: 健康村) is a public housing estate and Flat-for-Sale Scheme estate in North Point, Hong Kong, developed by the Hong Kong Housing Society. It is divided into 3 phases and located at Tsat Tsz Mui Road (Redeveloped Phase 1, flat for rental and sale), King's Road (Redeveloped Phase 2, flat for sale) and Pak Fuk Road (Redeveloped Phase 3, flat for rental) respectively.[1] It consists of 14 residential blocks (4 for Phase 1, 3 for Phase 2, 7 for Phase 3) completed between 1965 and 1997.[2]

Background[edit]

The site of Healthy Village was formerly a squatter area. The area was cleared in the 1950s and the site was handed over to Hong Kong Housing Society for the development of rental housing. Phase 1, located at King's Road, had two blocks built in 1955. Phase 2, located at Tsat Tsz Mui Road, had three blocks built in 1959. Phase 3, located at Pak Fuk Road, had seven blocks built in 1965.

Phase 2 was firstly demolished in 1990[3] and replaced by 4 blocks of Redeveloped Phase 1 in 1993. Two of the blocks are for rental while the other two are for sale. Phase 1 was then demolished in 1993 and replaced by 3 blocks of Redeveloped Phase 2 in 1997.[4] All 3 blocks are for sale. However, Phase 3 blocks built in 1965 have not been redeveloped yet.[5]
