Metro City (Chinese: 新都城) is the largest private housing estate and shopping centre in Tseung Kwan O, New Territories, Hong Kong, developed by Henderson Land Development.[1] Built on the reclaimed land in Po Lam, the estate was developed in three phases.

The MTR Po Lam Station, terminus of Tseung Kwan O Line, is located next to Metro City Phase II.[2] Metro City Phase II also serves as the Po Lam public transit terminal.

Residential blocks[edit]

The estate is divided into three phases by the order of their development, offering a total of 6768 units.[3] Phase 1 consists of 6 blocks completed in 1996. Phase 2 consists of 11 blocks completed in 2000. Phase 3, also called The Metropolis (Chinese: 都會豪庭),[4] consists of 4 blocks completed in 2002.[5]

Shopping centre[edit]

Each phase of Metro City has its own shopping centre. The shopping centre is the largest in Tseung Kwan O and covers 1.5 million square feet in size. It houses a department store, two grocery stores, a wet market, and over 400 shops. There are two cinemas in Tseung Kwan O, one is located at Metro City.

Footbridges connect the three shopping centres.[6] Surrounding housing estates such as The Pinnacle, Verbana Heights, Po Lam Estate, and Yan Ming Court also have direct pedestrian access to Metro City through footbridges.
