  1. So sad that yet another loud eyesore is being put up to help lazy people who don’t like “carrying groceries” up some stairs in the heat. You knew you’d need to use the stairs when you decided to move into the area! This will ruin the ambience and beautiful quiet surrounds of SWan. I guess this is HK after all where the ability to look beyond ‘convenience’ to preserve heritage / personality is lacking. 10000 trips a day?? No chance and this will be a waste of time and money. I agree investment into the area is needed and would be a better use of funds – ie: adding greenery and opening up certain areas more. This doesn’t need to have a 250m escalator as part of the plan. And school kids??? Get them active! I walked 8kms everyday to school and back and I am healthier for it. Please don’t turn one of the last quiet and nice areas of greater central into a new soho. Leave that for centre street (500m away!!)
