History[edit]

Ho Tung Lau maintenance centre before the residential developments

Jubilee Garden was built by Cheung Kong Holdings and Kowloon–Canton Railway Corporation during the 1980s and it was the first large-scale property development in Lok King Street, Fo Tan. Jubilee Garden was also the first large-scale residential development by the KCRC. It was built above a podium over the stabling tracks of Ho Tung Lau maintenance centre of the KCRC.[1]

The construction of the Jubilee Garden apartments was completed in two stages (completion date):

  • Stage One - Blocks 4 to 8 (1985)
  • Stage Two - Blocks 1 to 3 (1986)

The Ho Tung Lau maintenance centre was later upgraded in three phases between 1989 and 1995. The Royal Ascot, jointly developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties and KCRC, was built above it, and was fully occupied by April 1997.[1]
