Nestled in between the Peak and the primary Central business district is this residential area called the 'Mid-Levels Central'. It is very popular with the locals and expats alike due to its convenience, stunning city and harbour views and the availability of a large variety of apartments.

Apartments in this area range from tiny studio units, 1-2 bedrooms serviced apartments, family homes, furnished or unfurnished – up to 5 bedrooms, 4,500 sf penthouses with private roof gardens and swimming pools. There is something for everyone at Mid-Levels Central, and if you want to be in the heart of Hong Kong, then this is the location for you.

The general area of Mid-Levels Central includes: Albany, Bowen, Borrett, Conduit, beginning of Robinson, Macdonnell, Magazine Gap, May, Hornsey, Old Peak and Kennedy Roads together with Clovelly, Brewin and Tregunter Path.

Transport

Mid-Levels Escalator: connects Mid-Levels Central with the restaurant areas of Soho and Lan Kwai Fong and on into the business district. It is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world and covers over 800 meters in distance and elevates over 135 meters from bottom to top.

The escalator runs downhill into town taking people to work and the MTR system from 6am to 10am and the rest of the day it operates uphill. Operating hours are from 6am to 12 midnight. Peak Tram: ideal for taking visitors to the Peak for lunch or dinner and in the cooler months for a simple scenic walk.

Buses: For main mid-levels bus routes check New World First Bus. There are also regular public mini-buses- routes No.1, 2 & 3 from Pedder Street/ Exchange Square connecting to Central, Mid-levels and other parts of Hong Kong island. It is a 5-10 minutes commute to Central outside rush hour. Many larger residential developments in the Mid-Levels run their own shuttle bus with regular runs into and out of Central or Admiralty or Wan Chai.

When the weather permits, a short walk into Central and to the MTR is absolutely delightful! Or if you are in a hurry, taxies are plentiful and comparatively inexpensive. Many of the apartment blocks in the Mid-Levels provide their tenants with private parking spaces. However, as parking in Central and Admiralty is expensive and sometimes quite elusive, most residents take public transport during the week and use their cars only on the weekends.

The Mid-Levels area encompasses two main “green lungs” of the business district, the Hong Kong Zoological Gardens and Hong Kong Park and Aviary, both worth exploring and enjoying. There are also numerous smaller play-parks and sitting-out areas, and hiking trails leading around to the west and up to the Peak district. In addition, there is a well-used jogging path along Bowen Road which extends for 4 kilometers on a relatively flat track with a great variation of HK vistas, ending up at the top of Happy Valley, at Stubbs Road roundabout.

Sport Facilities

The Hong Kong Squash Centre, by Garden Road & the Bowen Road Tennis Courts, are public facilities managed by the Leisure & Cultural Services Department. There is a public Basket Ball Court located behind Coda Plaza next to Garden Road/Macdonnell Road and a Soccer Pitch behind Chater Hall at 1 Conduit Road.

In town, the Hong Kong Club, American Club and the Foreign Correspondents' Club are private business clubs with a variety of facilities including gyms. The Ladies Recreation Club at 10 Old Peak Road is a well-established membership-only Tennis and Swimming Club (9 outdoor & 2 covered tennis courts and 2 x 25 meter long heated lap pools and a baby pool).

Schools

Glenealy Junior School (Primary school) on Hornsey Rise and Island School (Secondary with GCSE'S & IB syllabus) in Borrett Road are both part of the English School Foundation Group. There are numerous kindergartens and pre-schools scattered around Borrett, Robinson, Caine and Kennedy Roads including Small World Christian Kindergarten, the Woodlands Group of pre-schools and Tutor Time. There are several well-regarded local schools in the area, one being St. Paul's College located on Macdonnell Road, one of the most exclusive Catholic Schools on Hong Kong Island which caters to both Primary and Secondary students, with English as the primary language of tuition.

Hospital

The Canossa Hospital is a privately run hospital by Catholic Canossan Nuns and managed by the Caritas. Located in the heart of Mid-Levels at No. 1 Old Peak Road, it has a 24 hour Out Patient Department, pediatric, physiotherapy, pharmacy, maternity, eye specialist clinic, surgical, general wards, MRI and X-ray facilities.
