Hong Kong Island
Pokfulam comprises a mixture of older style apartments, modern highrise developments and prestigious townhouses situated on the western side of Hong Kong Island, many with beautiful views over the South China Sea. The rents in Pokfulam are quite competitive, with a fairly equal mix of expatriates and local families.
The more popular modern and highrise blocks, including Residence Bel-air, Baguio Villas and Scenic Villas, are located close to the Cyberport IT centre that looks towards Lamma channel. They are well provided with their own minibus/shuttle bus services that supplement the public buses and minibuses servicing the other residential and shopping centres in the area, as well as into Central Hong Kong.
Lowrise complexes and prestigious townhouses are mainly concentrated around Bisney, Sassoon and Mount Davis Roads. These complexes provide open sea views, green and leafy neighbourhoods with rare garden areas, and are conveniently located close to the schools and hopitals situated along Pokfulam, Victoria and Sandy Bay Roads.
The major developments in this area in recent years, coupled with the large established Wah Fu housing estate and the housing development at Chi Fu Fa Yeun, have resulted in a rapid increase in the density of housing and the number of people moving into the area for the more affordable rentals. Although this has also produced an excellent choice of supermarkets, shopping malls and restaurants, traffic can get congested during rush hours, and travel times to Central may vary from 10 to 30 minutes.
Amenities in Pokfulam include the Hong Kong University and the Stanley Ho Sports Centre, the West Island High School, St Clare’s Girls’ School, Kennedy Primary School, the Pokfulam Riding School, the Princess Margaret Hospital and the Sandy Bay Duchess of Kent Children's Hospital.
