About Starstreet Precinct
Starstreet Precinct, centred around Three Pacific Place and comprising mainly Star Street, Moon Street, Sun Street, and Wing Fung Street, is a destination for those who prefer unique lifestyle choices.
Back in the 1900s, it was the location of Hong Kong Electric’s power plant in Wan Chai. Today, the precinct has evolved into an emerging dining area with strong artistic overtones, thanks to a group of creative talents, designers and free-thinking restaurateurs who have filled the area with cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries, florists and home design outlets.
Together with a thoughtfully landscaped environment and a Three Pacific Place Link connecting the precinct to the rest of the Pacific Place complex, these shops have turned the area into a Hong Kong lifestyle community.
