1923 PWD Report

The 2nd Generation Yau Ma Tei (Yaumati) Police Station including main block and outbuildings were completed in November and December 1923 respectively.

The old Yau Ma Tei Police Station was probably located at the junction of Station Street (later renamed Shanghai Street) and Public Square Street. It was later converted into a temporary magistracy for Kowloon.

Hi Liz,

I read it as saying it's the newer part built in 1957 that's going to be demolished:


Built in 1922 in the Edwardian style, the white and blue main block (also called “the old block”) is a three-storey building with two elongated wings forming a V shape. A new accommodation block was built in 1957.


The old block will become the new office of the Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau, but the accommodation block will be demolished.
