It was built by Paul Y. General Contractors Limited.
Kwong Yuen Estate / Hong Lam Court / Kwong Lam Court
Kwong Yuen Estate (Chinese: 廣源邨) is a mixed public and TPS estate in Siu Lek Yuen. Unlike other public estates in Sha Tin, Kwong Yuen Estate is built on sloping platform, instead of reclaimed land. In 2001, some of the flats were sold to the tenants through Tenants Purchase Scheme Phase 4.
The Commercial Centre Complex of the estate was designed to merge into the village environment in the vicinity. Unlike the commercial centres of other public housing estates, the Complex consists of five two-level blocks which are standing on two platforms. The 26m clock tower of the Complex is to reinforce the image of the Commercial Centre. In 1992, the design of the commercial centre won a Certificate of Merit in the annual design competition which was organized by The Hong Kong Institute of Architects.

Lek Yuen Estate
Lek Yuen Estate (Chinese: 瀝源邨) was the first public housing estate in Sha Tin, and is built on the reclaimed land of Sha Tin Hoi, located near Wo Che Estate and Sha Tin Station. The estate consists of seven residential blocks completed in 1975.
Lek Yuen Estate was one of the first of a "new generation" of estates which were more self-contained with regard to the provision of amenities and shopping. Covered walkways allow tenants to do their shopping close to home, without relying on cars or trains. This is now a standard element of housing estate design in Hong Kong. When the old Sha Tin market was being demolished, many merchants were relocated to the Lek Yuen Estate shops, though some complained of comparatively "exorbitant" rents.
The shopping centre is now owned by The Link REIT. The estate locality has several other facilities including a market, a park, a public clinic, an entertainment building called "Sha Tin Fun City", and numerous schools. An elevated walkway runs through the estate, linking it to Sha Tin Town Centre (to the south) and Wo Che Estate (to the north).

Sui Wo Court
Sui Wo Court (Chinese: 穗禾苑) is one of the first estates under HOS in Sha Tin, built in 1980. It is located on a mountain above Wo Che and east of Fo Tan in the northwest of Sha Tin. It received a Silver Medal at the 1981 Hong Kong Institute of Architects Annual Awards.
Wo Che Estate
Wo Che Estate (Chinese: 禾輋邨) is the second public housing estate in Sha Tin, after Lek Yuen Estate. Built on the reclaimed land of Sha Tin Hoi, the estate consists of 13 residential blocks completed in 1975, 1980 and 2003.

The 13th house in the estate, King Wo House, was originally the HOS house called "Fung Sui Court", but the Hong Kong Housing Authority decided to transfer it to rental house before it was occupied in 2003.
Jat Min Chuen
Jat Min Chuen (Chinese: 乙明邨) is the only one estate in Sha Tin developed by the Hong Kong Housing Society. It consists of three residential buildings completed in 1981 and 1982. It was named for Mr. Tan Jat Ming (陳乙明), the former honorary treasurer of the Society.
Unlike other estates, the Hong Kong Housing Society financed the construct of Jat Min Chuen using a bank loan at a high interest rate, rather than from the Government. Therefore, the rent in the estate was forced to be put up as the Society needed to return money to banks afterwards.
Shek Mun Estate
Shek Mun Estate (Chinese: 碩門邨) is a public housing estate built on reclaimed land in Shek Mun, Sha Tin, near the MTR Shek Mun Station. It consists of two residential buildings completed in 2009.
A second phase, comprising four more blocks, started construction in 2015. This phase occupies a 2.25 ha site across the road from the existing estate and also includes a commercial centre, a welfare block, a kindergarten, a car park, and public space.

Yu Chui Court
Yu Chui Court (Chinese: 愉翠苑) is a HOS court in Yuen Chau Kok, Sha Tin, near MTR City One Station. Built on the reclaimed land of Sha Tin Hoi, it consists of 16 blocks (except the 2 demolished blocks) built in 2001.
In 2000, Block C and D of the court was found short-piling, in which only four of the 18 piles of the blocks could meet the specifications. Finally, the government decided to demolish the two blocks for safety reasons. The site was then reconstructed as a garden.
