Reclamation Street (Chinese: 新填地街; pinyin: Xīntiándì Jiē; Cantonese Yale: san1 tin4 dei6 gaai1) is a street stretching from Jordan to Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong. As its name suggests, it was built on the reclaimed western shore of the Kowloon Peninsula.

Location[edit]

Reclamation Street runs mostly parallel and west to Nathan Road. It starts from the junction with Nanking Street in the south and ends in the north at the junction with Lai Chi Kok Road and Prince Edward Road West in the Prince Edward area. It runs mostly between and parallel to Canton Road and Shanghai Street. The road is interrupted in two locations, and is thus made up of three sections.

Features[edit]

The street is lined with old residential buildings, as well as a wide variety of businesses at the street level. The wholesale Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market and the former Yaumati Theatre are located at the street's junction with Waterloo Road.
