Hong Kong Parkview

Hong Kong Parkview (Chinese: 陽明山莊) is the largest private housing estate in Tai Tam, Hong Kong.[1] It is located at Mount Nicholson, Wong Nai Chung Gap, with the east of Wong Nai Chung Reservoir Park. It is surrounded by Tai Tam Country Park.


Each block is 20 storeys tall. The estate houses a total of 984 flats.[2]


It consists of 18 blocks opened in 1989 by Chyau Fwu. It was designed by Wong Tung & Partners.[3]

Being surrounded by protected lands on all sides, the development was criticised after opening for spoiling the serenity of Tai Tam Country Park.[4][5]

In 2004, undercover officers from the Home Affairs Department stayed overnight at Hong Kong Parkview, and found that it offered services akin to that of a hotel. Parkview (Suites) Limited and Tri-view Limited were thus fined HK$20,000 for operating a hotel without a licence, as is required under the Hotel and Guesthouse Accommodation Ordinance.[6] Parkview appealed the fines, arguing that they operated within a technical loophole, but the appeal was rejected by the Court of Final Appeal in 2006.[6]

Murder incident[edit]

In November 2003, Robert Kissel, the Asia-Pacific managing director of global principal products of Merrill Lynch was killed here by his wife, Nancy Kissel, by milkshake laced with sleep medicine.[7][8][9]
