Rare example of pre-war Hong Kong architecture to be destroyed after building owners ignore government pleas to save it
 
 
Authorities in Hong Kong have failed to save a rare, pre-war Chinese tenement block from the wrecking ball, despite weekly attempts to get in touch with the owners of the historic property for the past five months, the Posthas learned.
 
The Buildings Department has approved a proposal submitted by the owners of a 86-year-old walk-up in Sham Shui Po for it to be demolished.
