Nestled on a patch of hillside between the Peak and the Central Business District is this prestigious residential area known as “Mid-levels Central”.
It is popular with local and expatriates alike due to its convenience, stunning city and harbor views and the availability of a large variety of apartments.The main arteries of the area include: Albany, Bowen, Borrett, Conduit, beginning of Robinson, Macdonnell, Magazine Gap, May, Hornsey, Old Peak and Kennedy Roads together with Clovelly, Brewin and Tregunter Path. There is a large range of apartment layouts to pick from ranging from small studio or one to bedroom units to large 5 bedroom apartments. The area is well-served by public transport routes: routes No. 1,2 & 3 from Pedder Street or Exchange Square to the Mid-levels. It is only a 5 to 10 minute commute to Central outside rush hour. Many of the established residential developments run their own shuttle bus service to Central, Admiralty or Wan Chai. Highlights: - The Mid-Levels Escalators is the longest outdoor covered walkway in the world (800m). It was constructed in 1993 to provide a better commute that spans from IFC all the way to Conduit Road. The escalator runs downhill into the city center taking people to work from 6am to 10am and the rest of the day it operates uphill. Operating hours are from 6am all the way to midnight. –The Hong Kong Zoological Garden, Hong Kong Park and Aviary are worth making a trip to. There are multiple playgrounds, animal exhibits and even hiking trails that lead to the west and up to the Peak district. –There is a popular jogging path along Bowen Road that extends for 4km on a relatively flat track and leads to the top of Happy Valley. -The Peak Tram is a fun way to take visitors to the Peak for sightseeing and to enjoy a good meal.
