The town was designed to be expanded from and incorporate the previously existing areas of Tai Po Market, Tai Po Old Market and Tai Wo Market. In the 1990s, extensive reclamation work was carried out near the mouth of the Lam Tsuen River in Tolo Harbour in order to create land for the new town.
The new town is divided between residential and industrial areas, with a mix of public and private housing. The Tai Po Industrial Estate southwest of Ting Kok is one of the major industrial estates in Hong Kong.
