History

The quarter was constructed in there in 1932, then known as the “May 28th Houses” in commemoration of the Portuguese Reformation Day.

The two-storey buildings stood in two lines on top of rectangular foundations with chopsticks shape, hence the name is "Fai Chi Kei" in Cantonese.

Later, the original houses were rebuilt to become a public rental housing project surrounded by reclaimed land. Designed by Manuel Vicente, the complex was supposed to be four buildings, but instead two 6 storey complex were built with an inner courtyard.

Redevelopment

The housing project has since disappeared and demolished to make way for The Praia, a large residential development.
