Laguna City (Chinese: 麗港城) is a large-scale private-housing estates built in Sai Tso Wan, Kwun Tong District, in eastern Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was developed jointly by Cheung Kong Holdings and Hutchison Whampoa Property[3] and completed in the early 1990s. The estate is also home to Laguna City Football Club and Laguna Gully Cricket Club.

Location

Laguna City is built along Lam Tin's waterfront. Part of Laguna City is built on reclaimed land. The development is adjacent to Cha Kwo Ling Village, one of the last squatter villages in Hong Kong.[4]

History

In the late 1980s, Cheung Kong acquired two pieces of land in Lam Tin, one being a former Shell oil depot, now the Laguna City, the other above the newly built Lam Tin MTR station and bus terminus, which was developed into the Sceneway Garden respectively.[5][6] Laguna City was completed in 1991 and Sceneway Garden was completed in 1992.

Laguna City consists of four phases, totalling 38 towers at its 1991 completion. There are 3 private roads in Laguna City, which are Laguna Street in phase 1 and 4, Laguna Street East in phase 2 and Laguna Street South in phase 3. Phases 1, 2 and 4 of Laguna City are managed by the same company, while phase 3 has an independent management authority. Similarly, Phases 1, 2 and 4 share an owners' committee, whereas Phase 3 has its own.[1][2] Census data indicate that Laguna City had a population of 23,354 in 2011.[7]
