Background

Lower Wong Tai Sin Estate was formerly a resettlement estate, called Wong Tai Sin Resettlement Estate (黃大仙徙置屋邨). It had 29 blocks built between the 1950s and 1960s with a total population of 97,000 at that time. In 1973, the estate was renamed as Lower Wong Tai Sin Estate. In 1980, Block 8 was reassigned to Upper Wong Tai Sin Estate and was renamed "Cheung Yan House" (長欣樓). Between the 1980s and 1990s, all old blocks were demolished to reconstruct new blocks. In 2001, some of the flats in Lower Wong Tai Sin (I) Estate were sold to tenants through Tenants Purchase Scheme Phase 4.
