Having lived on Robinson Road for the last 15 years which has served me well; I have to say it is no longer the place to be.
There is so much construction there right now; it is almost impossible to get a good night’s sleep.
The Hong Kong Government issues licenses for the developers to start construction at 7a.m. every morning except Sunday and you can be guaranteed at least 4-5 construction sites on the go at any given time. At the premium rate that you pay for rent; you are probably better off in some other location like Sai Ying Pun, Kennedy Town or Pok Fu Lam.
The noise from any one construction site is usually so loud that any building within a 500m radius will be affected.
What I can’t understand is why the government is allowed to issue licenses for construction at 7a.m.
