Jubilee Buildings, Sham Shui Po [1935-????]
Here is the approximate location of the Jubilee Buildings. They stood on the block bounded by Pratas Street, Hai Tan Street, Camp Street, and Tung Chau Street. When they were built, Tung Chau Street was the seafront, the southern edge of the Sham Shui Po reclamation.
They lay within the boundary of the Sham Shui Po army camp. Jason Wordie's 'Streets. Exploring Kowloon' mentions them:
A substantial block of flats on the waterfront, later known as Jubilee Buildings, was subsequently acquired by the military for use as married quarters. It had originally been built as a speculative venture by the prominent local Eurasian Hotung family.
