George Hongchoy said, “H.A.N.D.S is our largest asset enhancement project to date, costing close to HK$ 500 million. It is a unique project for us that combines the former On Ting Commercial Complex and Yau Oi Shopping Centre to create this modern and spacious one-stop shopping landmark in Tuen Mun. H.A.N.D.S stands for “Have A Nice Day Shopping”, a new concept based on comfort and casualness. The shopping centre features over 160 shops offering a variety of products and services that cater to the community needs. New restaurants featuring international cuisines are also being introduced to Tuen Mun for the first time.
