Nob Hill (Chinese: 盈暉臺) is a private housing estate in Lai Chi Kok, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, Hong Kong, located at the former site of Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park, together with Wah Lai Estate and Lai Yan Court.[1] It has totally 3 blocks[2] and it was jointly developed by Cheung Kong Holdings and Far East Hotels and Entertainment in 2002.[3]

District boundary issues

Nob Hill straddled at two different districts during the first few years after occupation. Block 1 and Lai Chi Kok Bus Terminus at its ground floor belonged to Sham Shui Po District while Block 2 and 3 belonged to Kwai Tsing District.[4][5] However, this arrangement caused many inconvenience for handling district council matters. Some residents asked to assign the whole estate into Sham Shui Po District because the estate is near Mei Foo Sun Chuen. As a result, the government decided to put Nob Hill wholly into Sham Shui Po District in 2007.[6][7]
