The headquarters of bakery company Garden, a landmark in Sham Shui Po, is up for redevelopment.
The company is awaiting approval from the Town Planning Board. The building is located at 58 Castle Peak Road.
The plan is to redevelop the building into a 25-floor commercial and office block with three levels of basement, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports.
The redeveloped building will have restaurants, cookery classrooms and offices. Garden plans to rent out the 11th to 20th floors. The total floor area is about 111,000 sq ft.
The company told Apple Daily that it is conducting preliminary research. The proposed redevelopment comprises about 50,000 sq ft of office space and 61,000 sq ft of restaurant and cookery training facilities.
Gardenis, a traditional local brand, was established in 1926. The clock tower at the top of the 1930s headquarters building is often regarded as a Sham Shui Po landmark that has witnessed changes in the old district over the years.
