About Mid-levels Central
European colonists built their houses on Victoria Peak to reach for cooler temperature at high attitudes. Homes on the Peak were considered accolades for wealth, power and status. Peak Tram went into service in 1888, with terminus on Garden Road and the Peak, and an intermediate station on May Road. Residential development sped up since Peak Tram was in service. Peak District Reservation Ordinance in effect between 1904 and 1947 banned Chinese from living on the Victoria Peak. Those days, the Lower Peak area was as high as the prominent wealthy Chinese families could live.
Homes in the Lower Peak were of much lower density and were one by one redeveloped into the skyscrapers today. Tavistock, Century Tower, May Tower, Tregunter 1 & 2, part of Midlevels Portfolio by Hong Kong Land, were redeveloped for rental purposes, and were homes to many important business leaders at the time. It is interesting to note that the potentials of these plots were not fully exploited until subsequent owners built additional blocks to utilize all the unrealized plot ratios. Currently, prominent buildings in the area include Tavistock, Aigburth, Branksome, Tregunter Towers, May Towers, Century Towers, Queen's Garden, Dynasty Court, Cloverly Court, Garden Terrace, Valverde, Hillsborough Court, Kam Yuen and Pine Court.
