Lam Tin is the hill area at the southeast of Kwun Tong District. There was a resettlement estate in the area, called Lam Tin Resettlement Estate (Chinese: 藍田徙置區) in the 1960s.
The resettlement has totally 23 blocks. Block 15 was also the 500th public estate building constructed by the Works Bureau. All the blocks in the estate were demolished in Lam Tin Estate Redevelopment Project (Chinese: 藍田邨重建計劃) between the 1980s and 2000s. They were replaced by new blocks of Kai Tin Estate (Chinese: 啟田邨), Ping Tin Estate (Chinese: 平田邨), On Tin Estate (Chinese: 安田邨) and new Lam Tin Estate (Chinese: 藍田邨).
Hing Tin Estate (Chinese: 興田邨) is a mixed public and TPS estate at the north of Lam Tin, near the Kwun Tong side exit of Tseung Kwan O Tunnel. It consists of 3 blocks completed in 1987. Some of the flats were sold to tenants during Tenants Purchase Scheme Phase 4 in 2001.
Hong Yat Court (Chinese: 康逸苑) is a HOS court in Lam Tin, near Kai Tin Estate, Lam Tin Estate and MTRLam Tin Station. It belonged to Phase 5 of the Lam Tin Redevelopment Project. It has 5 blocks built in 2001.
Lei On Court (Chinese: 鯉安苑) is a HOS estate in Lei Yue Mun Road, Lam Tin, Kwun Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong, located near MTR Lam Tin Station. Built in 2002, it consists of six Concord-typed blocks, providing a total of 1684 flats. Blocks A, D, E and F are built in conjunction with the carpark building, whereas Block B and C stand separately at the northwest of the Court.
Lei On Court was built at the former site of a public housing estate, Kwun Tong (Lei Yue Mun Road) Estate (Chinese: 觀塘(鯉魚門道)邨) (which is different from the current Lei Yue Mun Estate). Kwun Tong (Lei Yue Mun Road) Estate was built in 1962 and demolished in 1997. It was replaced by the current Lei On Court, an HOS estate.
Ping Tin Estate (Chinese: 平田邨) was a part of Lam Tin Estate Redevelopment Project. It consists of 8 blocks (including one Ancillary Facilities Block for Housing for Senior Citizen) completed in 1997 and 1998.
Tak Tin Estate (Chinese: 德田邨) is a mixed public/TPS estate in Lam Tin, near Ping Tin Estate and Lam Tin Estate. It consists of 9 blocks completed in 1998 and 2001. In 1999, some of the flats (Tak Hong House and Tak Yan House excluded) were sold to tenants through Tenants Purchase Scheme Phase 2.
The current Lam Tin Estate (Chinese: 藍田邨) is smaller than the original one, and it has 4 blocks completed in 2009. Its predecessor was a resettlement estate from the 1960s to 1990s. Andy Lau, a Hong Kong famous singer, lived in Block 15 of the estate when he was a child. It was demolished between the 1990s and 2000s and its area is redeveloped to construct Kai Tin Estate, Ping Tin Estate, On Tin Estate, Hong Yat Court and the new Lam Tin Estate. Andy Lau also autographed 'Lam Tin Estate' in Chinese calligraphy at the time of the estate completion.
