The St. Francis Street, Star Street, Sun Street and Moon Street area was developed in the 1900s. The low-rise urban environment, the mature trees ,the inclusive nature of the neighbourhood allowing both the trendy and the local to co-exist, the absence of heavy vehicular traffic, the relaxed atmosphere of an urban village, the stable local community, the feeling of a safe district ,the historic connection with the Roman Catholic missionary in the 19th Century.
The presence of creative industry such as metal craft workshops, designer studios, art galleries, and the proximity of the area to the business districts of Wanchai and Admiralty are all valuable assets. We aim to retain and build on these assets.The general atmosphere is one of being slightly down at heel and in gradual decline.
Street improvement work is to help rebuild a sense of identity and purpose in the Star Street /Sun Street / Moon Street / St. Francis Street area. We hope to encourage the area to play an important role for the future of Hong Kong and the existing community and building fabric are important in this regeneration process.
