AbstractThe development of the Hong Kong shophouse lasted some 110 years, from the 1840s to the 1950s. The demise of the shophouse typology was directly related to post-war population growth and its associated housing and commercial needs. Simply put, the traditional shophouse, in all its guises, became an obsolete form of real estate development. By the early 1960s, it was completely superseded by mixed-use composite buildings and ultimately high-rise buildings. Left behind is a legacy of distinctive buildings that continue to resonate with generations of Hongkongers.
