Sunshine City (Chinese: 新港城) is the name of a private development in the town centre of Ma On Shan in the Sha Tin District of Hong Kong. It was developed by Henderson Land Development, and contains a series of high-rise residential tower blocks and a series of shopping arcades. The largest, Sunshine City Plaza, has nowadays become the centre of Ma On Shan.[citation needed]

Residential towers[edit]

The residential buildings of Sunshine City, containing in excess of 5,000 residential units, were constructed in five phases during the 1990s. The majority of units are between 40 and 60 square metres. Each phase was built together with a shopping arcade. Phase 5 is also known as Tolo Place (海濤居).

"Sunshine City Plaza" (新港城中心), the shopping arcade built with phase 4, is by far the largest, and has retail floor space of in excess of 175,000 square metres (1,880,000 sq ft). "Sunshine Bazaar" (新港城廣場) is the name given to Phase 5 of the mall.

Location and access[edit]

Sunshine City Plaza is located on Sai Sha Road, adjacent to the MTR Ma On Shan Line station, has nowadays become the centre of Ma On Shan.
