Lok Fu Estate was formerly the Lo Fu Ngam Resettlement Area (老虎區徙置區) and has a total of 23 blocks built in 1957. A former shrine at the site was moved to a new location in Kwun Tong, which is now within the Tsui Ping Estate. In 1973, the area was renamed the Lok Fu Estate. It started rehabilitation and redevelopment in the 1980s. In 1991, the six blocks in the nearby Wang Tau Hom Estate were allocated to the Lok Fu Estate.
