From Wikipedia:

The Tai Hing Estate (Chinese: 大興邨) is the second public housing estate and the oldest existing public housing estate in Tuen Mun, New Territories, Hong Kong. There are 8,602 flats on the estate with capacity to house 21,100 people.

The site was previously farms near the coastline of Castle Peak Bay before the land reclamation of the bay for the construction of Tuen Mun New Town.
