Heritage buildings blend with contemporary architecture with a focus on the arts

Former Central Police Station Compound was among the earliest areas to be developed in colonial-era Hong Kong, with the first building constructed in 1864, and others added throughout the early years of the 20th century. The former Central Police Station (CPS), Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison are now being blended in with new buildings to form a multi-purpose venue that will embrace heritage appreciation and education with visual and performing arts activities. Set to open in late 2016, the revitalised CPS Compound will offer a new kind of cultural space and incorporate restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries along with its arts activities and programmes.
