Wan Chai Environmental Resource Centre

Wan Chai Environmental Resource Centre

Wan Chai Environmental Resource Centre is closed for renovation works until further notice.

The old Wan Chai Post Office, which was listed as a Declared Monument in 1990, now serves as the Environmental Protection Department Resource Centre.

The L-shaped structure is the oldest surviving post office building in Hong Kong. It was erected between 1912 and 1913, and opened in 1915. It is a simple pitched-roof structure with attractive gable ends and mouldings. The Chinese couplet on the entrance facing Queen's Road East says: "If we foul our world that sustains us, what then shall we eat? Scorn hygiene that protects life, where then shall we live?"

The building services include a reference library and a touch-screen environmental information system.
