陸上行舟 – 僑企船廠 chiao chi, a shipyard in the mid of land

2016.9.17 | 荔枝角道 875 lai chi kok road

船廠應該靠著海,如今這裏外面是寬闊的快速馬路,海完全不在視線範圍。絕對說明滄海桑田。

建築已經被改換用途,慶幸現在的地主保留這堵牆以及原建築。

網上資料說,因西九龍填海計畫,原來在長沙灣的六家船廠包括這家,搬遷往大嶼山或昂船洲。這船廠其實在 1980 年代頭註冊的,而填海計劃在 1990 年代中開始設計。一門生意十多年左右要經歷大變動,想像起來也很煩勞。

今天這地址是東方石油的總部。想當然地覺得石油與船到底可以說有點關聯,可能就因為這點牽絲,讓這門牌繼續保留。

the signage reads chiao chi shipyard and the address.

a shipyard in the middle of land? good for the owner of the plot that it is keeping the building and not tearing it down.

this address is now registered under feoso, an oil company.

searching online, there’s not much about chiao chi shipbuilding company except for its registration information and the fact that it is still running.

searching result of the address gives a little more understanding. this site is now surrounded by land, which is the outcome of the west kowloon reclamation plan. the government started designing the development of the area in the mid of 1990s. there were six shipyards around cheung sha wan being affected then. one being chiao chi. all of them were moved to either stonecutter island or lantau.

this location is now occupied by feoso, an oil company.
