Staunton Street

On style, she rules

Would you know where to get foldable shoes/flats in Hong Kong? Heels are a must for my work but I hate walking in them on the way home or to the MTR. They're fairly common in the United States but I haven't found any affordable options here.

Under a 1998 proposal, Staunton Street, Wa In Fong West, Wa In Fong East, Shing Wong Street and Chung Wo Lane were to be redeveloped.

SoHo residents have done a fine job of renewal without the URA

In its recent application to the Town Planning Board for approval of its master layout plan for the Staunton Street/Wing Lee Street redevelopment project, the Urban Renewal Authority created a misleading impression that buildings on Staunton Street were in a derelict condition.
