The Former Marine Police Headquarters were occupied by the Hong Kong Marine Police from 1880’s to 1996, except for the period during second world war. The site comprises the Main Building, Stable Block, Time Ball Tower, Old Kowloon Fire Station and Fire Station Accommodation Block.
The rich colonial characteristic of the Former Marine Police Headquarters is reflected in the Victorian architecture of the buildings on site. In recognition of such historical significance, all the buildings – except for Main Block of the Old Kowloon Fire Station – were declared monuments under the Antiquities and Monuments Ordinance in 1994.
In 2003, the Hong Kong Government commissioned the restoration of this historical site, awarding the tender to CK Asset Holdings Limited in the first private sector adaptive re-use project of its kind in the territory. The revitalization took over 6 years to complete, and was carried out in accordance with world conservation standards. A world-class team of experts, including architects, historical building preservationists, designers, tree experts, landscape architects and engineering supervisors, were employed to bring the “1881 Heritage” vision into fruition.
The overriding objective of the revitalization process has been to preserve and maintain the historic value of the buildings on site, while adding functionality to suit modern needs and to re-integrate the development into the urban tapestry of today. The development has numerous heritage features:
-The bomb shelter underneath the site has been preserved as the passageway leading to the Heritage Hall, offering visitors a glimpse of what the old bomb shelter looked like;
-Tree experts have been engaged to assess the trees on site and to preserve them where appropriate;
-A giant nautical chart of Hong Kong covers the piazza floor, highlighting Hong Kong’s glorious history as a vital commercial port; and
-The Time Ball Tower has been fully restored.
