Sketching a Bus Terminus in Kwun Tong 巨變將臨裕民坊

Sketching a Bus Terminus

The old town centre of Kwun Tong is about to undergo a big change as the buildings surrounding this bus terminus are soon going to be pulled down for a mega development. Many old small shops are already closed for good and apartments are all vacant here except the bus terminus which is still in operation.  Will this area become yet another huge air-conditioned mall?

Personally, I would prefer keeping some old buildings, have them refurbished, adding some new ones, keeping and improving the street life, instead of turning everything into a huge single indoor air-conditioned mall!
