Peak Tram and new Richmond Houses

Nearly got it. By the end of 2002 the new Richmond Houses A-D are under construction, so second generation Richmond House was probably demolished in 2001 (in November 2000 it was still standing). That was an error, second generation was already gone by end of 1999!
