Kennedy Town is Hong Kong’s up and coming hot spot. Within the next few years, extension of MTR’s Island Line from Sheung Wan will be complete, turning its waterfront locations into Hong Kong’s new prime destination – and Kennedy Town into a valuable investment. Luxury residences such as The Merton, Manhattan Heights and The Sail already command high prices and high views over Kennedy Town’s breathtaking seaview,a view afforded by its relatively underdeveloped waterfront.
Its restaurant and nightlife scene is also budding, catering to increasingly international tastes and ambiance with Davis Street dubbed the “SoHo of Kennedy Town”. Its population consists of mostly native Chinese, but a growing number of expats are taking advantage of the prime, luxury real estate on the waterfront.
