From Wikipedia

Lower Wong Tai Sin Estate was formerly a resettlement estate, called Wong Tai Sin Resettlement Estate (黃大仙徙置屋邨). It had 29 blocks built between the 1950s and 1960s with a total population of 97,000 at that time. In 1973, the estate was renamed as Lower Wong Tai Sin Estate. In 1980, Block 8 was reassigned to Upper Wong Tai Sin Estate and was renamed "Cheung Yan House" (長欣樓).

Between the 1980s and 1990s, all old blocks were demolished to reconstruct new blocks.
