The ceremony was held on 2 February 2023 marking the commencement of the superstructure work of the Drainage Services Tower (DS Tower).
The DS Tower construction project is one of the nine replacement building projects to facilitate the release of the Wan Chai Government Offices Compound (WCGOC) site. The new office building of 21-storey is being constructed on part of the land within the existing Cheung Sha Wan Sewage Pumping Station (CSWSPS) with a view to optimising the use of limited land resources.
