Mei Ho House (美荷樓), formerly part of the old Shek Kip Mei Estate, was built in 1954. It is the only "Mark І" H-shaped resettlement block in Hong Kong and is now listed as a Grade Ⅱ historic building. It is part of the seven buildings of Batch І of the Hong Kong Government's Revitalizing Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme. It will be used by the Hong Kong Youth Hostels Association as "City Hostel".
In this event, Sr Chan and Ir Lo will brief the members about the background, difficulties for the revitalization works, and indicative time and cost aspects of the project.
After the briefing, members will be guided to visit the newly revitalized building and the museums of Mei Ho House.
