Residentially the areas are a mixture of new luxury developments and older Chinese buildings. Fortress Hill, which is part of North Point district to the east, has many modern high rise towers.
In recent years there have been many new towers built along Cloud View Road and Tin Hau Temple Road, such as Sky Horizon and Summit Court and there are also older developments such as Flora Garden and Beverley Heights.
