Shun Tak Centre is a commercial and transport complex on the northern shore of Hong Kong Island in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. It comprises a 4-storey podium containing a shopping centre and car park, two 38-storey office towers, and the Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal. Shun Tak Centre is a minor transport hub, with direct access to the Sheung Wan Station of the MTR, a bus terminal adjacent to the east, a large taxi stand, and the piers for ferry services to Macau and China. It is also convenient to the southern portal of the Western Harbour Crossing.
The building is in Edwardian style that was popular in England from 1901 to 1918. It was originally the old Western Market (North Block), which was identified by Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO) as one of the Declared Monuments in 1990. At present, it is the oldest market building surviving in Hong Kong The market is a combination of exuberantly classical facades and planning in a logical and spacious manner as inspired by the axial, symmetrical planning. Combination use of red bricks and granite band on a granite base and the 'bandaged' brick work to the corner towers gives a polychromatic effect. The arcade at First Floor to the Morrison Street facade is richly sculpted with keystone and regular blocks interrupting the arch as well as large and handsome granite arch over the main entrance giving the building a decorative effect. Triangulated gable front below is an elegant venation window with the central round headed arch openings. Cast iron structural columns, steel roof truss and the large local quarried granite steps to the corner staircase towers demonstrate the excellence of constructional technique at the time. In response to the local climate and availability of material, a steep roof is used covered with Chinese pan and roll tiles. The roof displays the combination of oriental features into the early Western style of building in Hong Kong
Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park is a waterfront park in the Sai Ying Pun area on Hong Kong Island and faces the Victoria Harbour. It is the only park in Hong Kong to be named for a Chinese historic figure Sun Yat-sen was a Chinese doctor, revolutionary and political leader. As the foremost pioneer of Nationalist China, Sun is frequently referred to as the Founding Father of Republican China, a view agreed upon by both Mainland China and Taiwan. Sun played an instrumental role in inspiring the overthrow of the Qing Dynasty, the last imperial dynasty of China. Sun was the first provisional president when the Republic of China (ROC) was founded in 1912 and later co-founded the Chinese National People's Party or Kuomintang (KMT) where he served as its first leader. Sun was a uniting figure in post-Imperial China, and remains unique among 20th-century Chinese politicians for being widely revered amongst the people from both sides of the Taiwan Strait. The park, with an area of over 10,000 square metres, provides a variety of leisure and recreational facilities to residents including a hard-surfaced multi-playing pitch, five pavilions with seats, and a landscape garden. The specially designed landscape garden, with trees and shrubs, is a welcome greening area in the busy urban district.
