100 Years of Lee Gardens
It’s been a century since Lee Hysan acquired East Point in 1923. Since then, Causeway Bay has evolved along with people, business and streets of the district that we call home. Join us in celebrating the 100th anniversary of Lee Gardens by exploring our intertwined stories with the neighbourhood to remember our histories, embrace the present and look forward to the future.
Our roots run deep in Hong Kong and Causeway Bay. This is our home.
Our story began in Causeway Bay on 27 November 1923, when my grandfather Lee Hysan purchased what was then known as East Point Hill. This year, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of our establishment in the heart of Hong Kong.
Lee Hysan’s vision, first and foremost, was to create an area where Hong Kong people could have their own space for recreation and relaxation. Over the past 100 years, Lee Gardens has grown with the city from a garden for the public to now, one of the world’s most bustling and vibrant destinations. Within the embrace of Causeway Bay, the memories of generations of Hong Kong people are fondly held, from the 1920s with the Lee Garden Amusement Park and the Lee Theatre, to the modern day. The rich tapestry of Lee Garden’s legacy unfolds as a unique reflection of the community’s development.
On this special occasion, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has been part of the history, culture and memories of the area. We are grateful for the contributions of our business and community partners, neighbours, colleagues, shareholders and friends, who have supported us throughout our journey.
Turning one hundred is a momentous milestone. While we will look back at what we have done in Hong Kong and how far we have come, it is important to plan for our future with conviction and confidence. We are committed to the long term. As we continue our journey, the expansion and rejuvenation of Lee Gardens will transform this precinct for our next 100 years, alongside our community business model which remains fundamental to our support of Hong Kong and our strong commitment to the social aspect of ESG. We believe Lee Gardens will continue to be a community where people come to work, live and enjoy and play, now and for generations to come.
To celebrate the beginning of a new century for Hysan, we are planning a series of celebratory events based in Lee Gardens. We hope you will celebrate with us and enjoy the events in the year ahead.
