HKURBEX re-shares images of Central Market, ahead of its reopening on August 23, 2021.

For years, the Grade III historical structure was a captivating haven of grime and decay, vacant since 2003.

The four-storey concrete structure in the heart of the city had 200 market booths arranged around an open-air court.

Developers claim the 122,00 sq ft new-look venue will be a “playground for all” with over 100 leasable units for retail and F&B outlets.
