I'm looking into CLP substations built in the 1960s that have employee housing on the upper floors, and would appreciate any information about them. There are roughly a dozen of these substations left, mostly in Mong Kok, Yau Ma Tei, Sham Shui Po, Tai Kok Tsui and To Kwa Wan. I've found one out in Tsuen Wan and another in Tai O. I've been able to access the CLP archives and found mention of them in several annual reports from the early 60s. They were part of a company policy to provide housing for their "Chinese workmen" but few details beyond that.
It's rare to see housing combined with an electric substation. Hong Kong Electric has none that I know of. Does anyone have any insight into their design and construction? Or know anyone who might have lived in one?
