Lei Muk Shue Estate (Chinese: 梨木樹邨) is a public housing estate in Lei Muk Shue, Kwai Chung, New Territories, Hong Kong, near the exit of Shing Mun Tunnel. It is the largest public housing estate in the Tsuen Wan District with the population of 37,000.[1] Although it is geographically located in Kwai Chung, administratively it belongs to the Tsuen Wan District[2] instead of the Kwai Tsing District because it is at the west of Wo Yi Hop Road, the boundary between the two districts.

History[edit]

Lei Muk Shue Estate was initially constructed in the 1970s when 17 buildings were erected.[3] It started redevelopment in the 1990s, at which time eight old buildings were demolished. Ten new buildings and a shopping centre built between 1998 and 2005.[4][5]
