Kennedy Town

Kennedy Town is located on the furthest northwestern part of Hong Kong island. It was named after Arthur Edward Kennedy, a governor of Hong Kong in 1886 when land was reclaimed along the coast of Kennedy Town.

It was then on the border of the Historical Victoria City. Kennedy Town has seen sweeping changes in the past few years with modern high-rise apartment blocks springing up in between the old 5 storey tenement buildings. The area still retains a large element of local charm with numerous street-side businesses selling anything from basic fruit and vegetables to all kinds of dried fish delicacies and paper offerings for honouring your ancestors. A familiar sound is the clacking of mahjong tiles – a favourite pastime amongst elderly residents.



Residential Blocks

With the extension of the underground system making this western most part of the island easily accessible, developers have invested heavily in Kennedy Town. Recent developments in the area include The Merton, Cadogan and Lexington Hill. The Belchers development is another good example of a modern high rise development with extensive club house facilities as well as a large Wellcome supermarket on site.

A wide choice of serviced apartments are also now available in the area, some with ocean-front harbour views such as Manhattan Heights, a mixed unfurnished, furnished and serviced residence. As Kennedy Town becomes more culturally diverse and easily accessible, shops and restaurants catering to all nationalities and tastes are now in good supply.

Kennedy Town straddles the hustle and bustle of city living and the tranquility of the Pokfulam area with stunning sunsets over the Lamma Channel, and is only a short distance from an extensive country park area with lovely walks up to the Peak and the excellent shopping/entertainment area at Cyberport.



Schools

With larger, more family friendly apartment buildings appearing in Kennedy Town, some of the international schools are now opening up campuses in the area:

Transportation

There is an extensive bus & minibus network from Kennedy Town. With its close proximity to the Western Tunnel, there are many buses to various areas of Kowloon as well as buses to North Point and Happy Valley. The A10 bus goes to the airport. Kennedy Town is the last stop at the Western end of the island line and there are several entrances to the MTR scattered around the area.
