Mei Foo Sun Chuen [1978- ]

Date Place completed: 
1978-01-01

I've set 1978 as the completion date for the whole estate, though as Wikipedia notes, many phases were completed much earlier:

Mei Foo Sun Chuen was built in eight stages[1] from 1965 to 1978 on the reclamation formerly used for petroleum storage by Mobil (now part of ExxonMobil) in Hong Kong (Mobil's Chinese trading name in Hong Kong is 美孚; Mei Foo). The development was conducted by Mei Foo Investments Limited, a subsidiary company of Mobil Oil (Hong Kong) Limited.[1]
