Lee Garden Three (LG3) – the site was once an urban oasis in Hong Kong
A new dining and shopping landmark called Lee Garden Three (LG3) in Causeway Bay will open tomorrow, after 5 years of redevelopment works.
The original site of LG3 was called “Sunning Plaza”, which was once named as an “urban oasis” in Causeway Bay, as there was a large open space around the building.
In 1982, Sunning Plaza was designed by acclaimed American-Chinese architect I.M. Pei who has 2 projects in Hong Kong. The first one is Sunning Plaza, the second one is the Bank of China Tower in Central.
Sunning Plaza was used to be one of the best chit-chat and dining places in Causeway Bay. Inn Side Out Bar and Da Domenico were the most popular bars and restaurants there.
It was a surprise to the market in 2013 when Hysan, Landlord of Sunning Plaza, confirmed to demolish the 30-year old building. All the shop and office tenants had to leave for the redevelopment purpose.
Many regular customers in Sunning Plaza were disappointed of losing their best hang-around place after work.
After 5 years, the site originally by Sunning Plaza was redeveloped into Lee Garden Three (LG3). A new name. A new look. And a new tenant mix too.
One F&B Tenant of Sunning Plaza, a F&B Group in Hong Kong, will return to the same site again. It’s interesting!
