Causeway Bay - Neighbourhood Watch & Luxury Home Feature

Hong Kong - causeway bay properties

Causeway Bay, or Tung Lo Wan is one of the busiest and most well-known districts tucked away on Hong Kong Island. It can be likened to New York City’s Times Square, where all of the face-paced action packed lifestyle happens. Causeway Bay is one of Hong Kong’s biggest and main shopping, commercial and residential districts and is a very popular choice amongst young singles, business professionals, and couples for its ultra-convenient location. We cannot talk about consumerism without speaking of Causeway Bay. Almost every square inch of this district is devoted to retail and F&B, with its endless options of international and local style shopping malls, department stores, boutique, street market stalls, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, lounges, karaoke lounges, fitness facilities…the list truly goes and on and on. Whatever you need in Hong Kong, you can most probably find in famed Causeway Bay.

This area bordering the Eastern District was once a warehouse district but has grown to become one of the most densely built and  populated areas in Hong Kong with plenty of residential options for your pickings. Predominantly local, Causeway Bay is such a popular choice amongst youngsters and new visitors because it is essentially in the centre of everything! If there is one word to describe Causeway Bay, it’s convenience. You can find everything you could possibly want and need just right outside of your door step. The streets of Causeway Bay are filled with a mixture of commercial, retail and residential buildings. Think massive billboards, bright lights, shocking neon signs, constant activity and busy streets. For those who love to live in places where there’s the feeling of constant city life, Causeway Bay is perfect because there is never a dull moment in this area. 

When it comes to residential living in Causeway Bay, there are truly bountiful options to choose from - mostly consisting of high-rise apartment buildings and walk-ups in older local style buildings - both of which are hugely popular amongst locals and expats. Due to the district being one of the most densely built areas in Hong Kong, the residences here tend to be on the smaller size, which makes it ideal for bachelors and bachelorettes. 

If you are a person who loves vibrant city-living in the heart of one of the most exciting neighbourhoods in Hong Kong then you might want to consider finding a home in Causeway Bay. 

Reasons to Consider living in Causeway Bay:

The Shopping - Causeway Bay is a real shopaholic’s haven, where everything from world-class international luxury brands, up-market fashion concept stores to local fashion boutiques can be found. People travel from far and wide across the world just to shop in Causeway Bay. Some of the most popular shopping destinations that can be found in Causeway Bay include but are not limited to:

There are also a great variety of restaurants there, making it an ideal one-stop shop for residents and visitors.

Jardine’s Crescent is one of the most famous in Hong Kong - a tightly packed roadside market that’s a hidden gem for discovering bargain clothing, accessories, and domestic goods.

Super Convenient Access to Transportation Lines

The convenience and ease of transportation are one of the biggest selling points for residential homes in Causeway Bay. Nearly every public transport line crosses Causeway Bay, making it one of the best locations for people who value convenience as their number one priority.  

You will never be bored!

It’s always "Lights, Camera, Action” in busy Causeway Bay District. If you don’t value too much serenity and instead prefer to live in areas with lots of action, then this is the neighbourhood for you. You will never find a dull moment - this district is the epitome of a city that never sleeps. 

The things that actual Causeway Bay Residents have to say about living in this neighbourhood:

"It’s a nice area with everything you could ever need, but the downside is that it’s extremely crowded and very noisy. If this is something you can cope with then Causeway Bay could be the area for you." 

"We live in Causeway Bay and we love it here. It’s very "downtown” with Times Square at its focal point. Expect a lot of people and traffic, but you will never be bored living here. It’s a shopper’s paradise, with major supermarkets like CitySuper, Sogo and Park n’ Shop in walking distance from each other, a million restaurants to choose from of all different cuisines, cinemas, Victoria Park, Hotels, IKEA…I could go on and on." 

"If you like the pace of big city living where you can walk anywhere in a highly saturated area, then this is a great area to live. " 

"Causeway Bay is essentially the centre of everything. Transport is so convenient, and every line runs through here - MTR, Buses, Minibus, Trams, Taxis - you name it, it’s all here." 

"It’s always incredibly busy! It’s bearable most days throughout the week but on Sundays, it is a circus! If it rains, you can expect to get hit by a hundred umbrellas just trying to cross the street." 

"It’s like the equivalent of living in Times Square in NYC, except Causeway is even more hectic. The area comes alive at night and is great but make sure you have a peaceful place to call home otherwise the noise and constant movement will drive you insane." 

"I’m a night owl, so I can always depend on Causeway Bay to find something to eat, drink, do anytime of the day. It’s literally 24 hours. This is the neighbourhood that never sleeps.” 

"The building we live in is a very old Chinese walk-up. It looks run-down from the outside but the inside is very comfortable with high ceilings and thick, soundproof walls. My one recommendation living in this neighbourhood, or any other really noisy Hong Kong neighbourhood for that matter is to pay attention to the noise from inside your flat. You will need decent windows and walls to block the noise from the streets."

In more detail:

a)       Google Analytics

Engel & Völkers uses the web analytics service Google Analytics from Google Inc. (“Google”) for analysing the use of websites. The information generated by cookies about the use of websites is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Engel & Völkers uses Google Analytics solely with the extension "ga ('set', 'anonymizeIp', true)", in order to ensure that IP addresses are only processed in a shortened version and in order to prevent direct references to individual persons. Google may transfer data to third parties if this is prescribed by law or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google. Google will not publish the IP address of the user in connection with other Google data. Users may at any time prevent the recording and storage of data by Google Analytics, by installing a Google-approved browser plug-in which can be downloaded from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

b)       Universal Analytics

Engel & Völkers uses the Universal Analytics functions provided by Google. These functions allow Engel & Völkers to record and analyse socio-demographic data about users by means of a Google ID (if available) and by means of cookies generated by Google from advertising contents (DoubleClick). If a Google ID is available, the data controller will be able to record this data across all devices (e.g. if users have both a smartphone and a PC) for analysing visitor flows across all devices. Users may at any time prevent the recording and storage of data by Google Analytics by installing a Google-approved browser plug-in which can be downloaded from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This website does not use profiling cookies.

HockeyApp

HockeyApp is provided by Microsoft (Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA). We use HockeyApp for error analyses and to improve the property app. If it crashes, the user may agree to submit a crash report to HockeyApp. A crash report includes information about the crash date and time, the affected software module, the operating system and language used, and the device type and IP address. The crash report will only be sent to HockeyApp once this has been specifically approved. The information contained in the crash report may be partially processed in the United States. HockeyApp is a service from Microsoft. Legal information about it can be found here:

Crashlytics

Crashlytics is an analysis tool offered and operated by Crashlytics Inc., based in Cambridge, MA, USA. Crashlytics generates crash reports, i.e. reports about malfunctions or failures of the app, where and in which context these have occurred, how many users of the app are affected, etc. Engel & Völkers uses these reports to detect malfunctions or failures to be able to react faster, more purposefully and more efficiently in the interests of the users and to be able to improve the app technically. For this purpose, Crashlytics, together with the user’s Symphony-related app ID, which can be deleted at any time, records data on the crash and on general data of the respective IT environment (in particular on the used device, the mobile service provider and the operating system). If personal or pseudonymous data is included, Crashlytics will delete it within seven days. This information will give Crashlytics and subsequently Engel & Völkers insight into whether and how the app works and is used, especially the malfunctions and failures that occur. Further information is available at try.crashlytics.com/terms/privacy-policy.pdf.
