The Housing Society will buy the Blue House cluster of heritage buildings in Wan Chai for HK$18.2 million and then hand ownership to the government, which will oversee their revitalisation. In doing so, the society was making a 'contribution to society', a spokeswoman said. The Development Bureau said yesterday it had received four applications from non-profit organisations interested in renovating and using the cluster of buildings.
