After working on two sketches and feeling a bit tired, I decided to make the third sketch a very quick one and so this one was done within 10 minutes at Gage Street, Central. The wet market here which covers Gage Street, Peel Street and Graham Street is pretty interesting. A living functional street market sandwiched between old tenement buildings, it serves the residents of the Mid-Levels and at the same time attracts quite a number of tourists, coming here to feel the authentic street culture of Hong Kong. However, the tenement buildings in this area are soon going to be torn down for redevelopment by the Urban Renewal Authority. If I were the authority, I would choose not to pull down everything, as the tenement buildings together with the street market have already become an asset to Hong Kong. If you have noticed how many foreign visitors like to come to Gage Street to take photos and feel the local ambience! Instead, I would help the residents to maintain the buildings. In case if the structure is already too dated to be kept in good condition, the authority could work with the residents to formulate redevelopment plan, enabling them to return to the same district after redevelopment, therefore allowing the very group of people who forms this "asset" to reconstruct the local ambience.
