Hong Kong Housing Estate comprises a 1/18 scale play set that is much like the set of mass public housing in Hong Kong provided by the Government of Hong Kong. The vast majority of projects consist of high-rise buildings with recent ones that contain 40 or more storeys.
The public housing estates are affordable housing for lower-income residents, which rents and prices are significantly lower than those for private housing and heavily subsidised by the government much like many others in all parts of the world.
The Hong Kong Housing Estate brings back memories to Hong Kong locals from 1950's onwards who used to live in such Housing Estates or many still do, as almost half of Hong Kong's population are residing in some form of Public Housing.
The series of "Hong Kong Housing Estate" from Hong Kong Heritage Collection best interprets the simple living condition and appreciating the history and culture of Hong Kong.
"Under the Lion Rock" public housing now comes with a balcony and a different styled door! You can also hang your clothes on top of the kitchen rather than outside. This housing estate with furnitures and accessories were commonly used in the 19th century including some in the present time such as bunk beds, tvs, wardrobe, table, round chairs, clothes hanger and more to be matched to complete your play set.
This product includes a bare house shell with pit toilet and balcony.
All furniture and accessories must be purchased separately (unless purchase whole Hong Kong Housing Estate set)
