Royal Ascot (Chinese: 駿景園) is a private residential development in Fo Tan, Sha Tin District, Hong Kong. The development consists of two phases, completed in 1995 and 1997 respectively. It was jointly developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties and the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (the management right was handed to the MTR Corporation after the Rail Merger). It is located above the MTR Ho Tung Lau Depot.[1]

Location[edit]

The development was built above the MTR Ho Tung Lau Depot and opposite the Sha Tin Racecourse, which can explain why the development was named Royal Ascot, after the well known English horse racing event.

Layout[edit]

Royal Ascot consists of ten blocks. Block 1-7 (Block 4 omitted according to superstitious beliefs - Tetraphobia) belong to phase 1, while Block 8-11 belong to phase 2.
