69G, Robinson Road [????- ]
This is a curious building on the south / uphill side of Robinson Road, opposite Castle Steps. Here's how it looks from the west:
It looks as though it was originally planned to be symmetrical about the staircase.
Here's the view of the wall at the other end:
The stubs of the concrete joists add to the feeling there's a missing half to this building.
That's not so unusual in Hong Kong. Often a section of a building is re-developed, leaving part of the older building still standing.
But look at the building that stands where the other half of 69G should be:
That's 69F, an odd little building that looks older than 69G.
I guess that the west half of 69G was built with the plan to build the east half when 69F was demolished. But the owners of 69F decided to keep it, so 69G was never completed.
I'd be interested to hear if anyone knows any more information about these two buildings, eg their ages, and whether there has ever been an eastern half to 69G.
