This type of building was typically referred to as a "Chinese" building in the colonial times.
Although not a "walk-up", this building is one of the few of its type to have its own lift.
Of note are some of the architectural features including: a lower cantilevered section over the street pavement, the rounded corners (a fung-shui element), the receding upper floors, the sun shades (usually illegal) and the wrought-iron work on the lower floor.
The apartments in this building would have homes to wealthier Chinese merchants in the district - this building being one of the better examples of a typical Hong Kong townhouse development.
