IDJ notes:

These belonged to HSBC and were demolished along with the adjacent hillsides for the new runway at Kai Tak. HSBC were given alternative land which may have been at Beacon Hill as I seem to recall Luso Apartments in Warwick Road was an HSBC staff complex in the 1960-70s.

China Mail 16 July 1957

'What were once hills behind the former HSBC flats at the end of College Road have now become practically flat. The hills are expected to be levelled by end of December and the Bank flats will be pulled down and the whole area will become one vast playing field.'
