Tai Kwun – Central Police Station Revitalisation Project
A partnership between The Hong Kong Jockey Club and the Hong Kong SAR Government, the Central Police Station (CPS) Revitalisation Project is an important initiative to conserve and revitalise the heritage site comprising the former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison for adaptive reuse. It aims to transform the historic site into a leading culture and leisure destination, where heritage, contemporary art and leisure elements are creatively integrated for all to enjoy.
The Hong Kong Jockey Club, through its Charities Trust, set up The Jockey Club CPS Limited, a not-for-profit company which provides heritage interpretation programmes across the site and collaborates closely with local and overseas art communities as partners in presenting contemporary art programmes. And as a reminder of its historic importance, it will be operated under the name of Tai Kwun, the old colloquial name when it was an integrated law enforcement and judiciary compound.
