Wo Che Plaza

 

Wo Che Plaza is a four-storey retail / carpark building built in 1977. The centre is located in Sha Tin, 15-minute walk by footbridge to Sha Tin MTR Station and the regional retail and municipal facilities hub around New Town Plaza. It is connected to Lek Yuen Plaza, and together they serve as medium-size community centres for the estate residents.
 
The first asset enhancement project was completed in 2009 with improved circulation and overall ambiance, and introduced new tenants, including the first AEON supermarket in Sha Tin and a furniture and household shopping zone.
 
The second asset enhancement project aims to capitalize on the initial AE and further enhance the second and third floors by optimizing trade mix and rationalizing circulation flow. It involves downsizing and repartitioning the existing Chinese restaurant on third floor to provide an arcade and more shops. The project also includes a new void adjacent to the existing escalators to create a mini-atrium.

Created more shops by repartitioning and reforming the second floor arcade
Added new escalators from the first to second floors
Constructed a new disabled and loading lift from the ground to first floors
