The following is an overview of public housing estates in Tai Wai, Hong Kong, including Home Ownership Scheme (HOS), Private Sector Participation Scheme (PSPS), and Tenant Purchase Scheme TPS) estates.

History[edit]

The history of public housing estates in Tai Wai is linked to the history of Sha Tin New Town, which started in the 1970s, and to the opening of Tai Wai Station in 1983. Unlike Sha Tin Town Centre, public housing estates in Tai Wai are mostly built on old sites of villages and fields, instead of reclaimed land.[1][2]
