The original Cheung Sha Wan Estate (Chinese: 長沙灣邨) opened between 1963-1964 as the Cheung Sha Wan Government Low Cost Housing Estate (Chinese: 長沙灣政府廉租屋邨). It was renamed following the 1973 establishment of the Housing Authority. All thirteen blocks of this estate were demolished in 2001 as part of the Comprehensive Redevelopment Programme, announced 1995. Most displaced residents were moved to the nearby Fortune Estate. The site of the original Cheung Sha Wan Estate is presently leased to the Asia Golf Club driving range.

A new estate opened in 2013, just north of the original site, bearing the same name. It is made up of two public rental blocks and an auxiliary facilities block linked to Un Chau Estate by a walkway spanning Cheung Sha Wan Road.[1]

So Uk Estate (Chinese: 蘇屋邨) is situated in the northern area So Uk, a downhill in Cheung Sha Wan. The estate was built alongside of squatter areas, which was later demolished for the construction of the estate of 16 blocks in 1960. Unlike many public housing estates built afterwards, the architectural design of the estates is unique in Hong Kong. The "houses" were named after varieties of flowers. There are 5,316 flats in the estate, with capacity of 15,200.[23] High maintenance cost made the Hong Kong Housing Authority decide to demolish it in 2008 and 2011 in two phases, and residents will be relocated to Un Chau Estate Phases 2, 4, and 5 in Sham Shui Po.[24]
