Star House (Chinese: 星光行) is a commercial building facing Victoria Harbour in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The building is located on Salisbury Road and Canton Road.

Star House has 50,800 square feet (4,720 m2) of commercial space.

The building's name is linked to the nearby Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Pier used by the Star Ferry. Both the ferry terminal and Star House are owned by The Wharf (Holdings).

History[edit]

The first Star House (Godown) was a two storey warehouse structure built in 1923 for The Hong Kong and Kowloon Wharf and Godown Company, Limited and demolished around 1963 to make way for the current 19-floor retail and commercial concourse, which was completed around 1967.[1]

From 1975 to 1983, the Hong Kong Museum of History was housed in a 700 m2 rented space within Star House.[2][3]
