灣仔南固臺相信好多人都會認識。大宅有超過一百年歷史，係屬於第一級歷史建築物。今年業主合和實業向城市規劃委員會呈交改劃申請，有望活化成證婚場所。 // Wan Chai’s Nam Koo Terrace mansion is one of the best known Grade 1 Historical Buildings in Hong Kong and also one with much notoriety. During World War 2 it was used by the Japanese army to house ‘comfort women’. It’s an open secret long kept tucked away by Hopewell Holdings company. But this year a new development proposal to convert the mansion into a marriage registry puts the fate of Nam Koo Terrace into the spotlight.大家可以趁機會向城規會發表意見。今日截止了。我們希望合和實業真係可以原整保留南固臺大宅。// If you want to leave a comment to the Town Planning Board please do so via link below. Today is deadline. Our main goal is that Nam Koo Terrace mansion can be preserved in its original state as much as possible.發表意見 // Leave comment https://pub31.tpb.gov.hk/pems/Comment.html?文件摘要 // Planning proposal by Hopewell http://www.info.gov.hk/tpb/tc/plan_application/Attachment/20180427/s12a_Y_H5_5_0_gist.pdf—————————————Music by LamchopAdditional footage by Exploring with Josh聲明: 強行進入這些設施或物業可能是違法行為。Disclaimer: Trespassing is against the law and we do not encourage others to do so.

The mansion was used by the Japanese army to house “comfort women” – womens and girls forced into sexual slavery during Japan’s occupation in World War II.
A subsidiary of the Hopewell Group has applied to convert the mansion into a marriage registry in March this year.
