Four Generations of the Lee Family


At the historic opening of Lee Garden Three in November 2018, Irene Lee, Chairman of Hysan Development remarked, “We have four generations of the Lee family here today to celebrate the opening of Lee Garden Three.

Over 95 years ago, Lee Hysan bought the plot of land we are standing on which became Lee Garden Hill.

We welcome our second generation, represented by Christina and Helen Lee, daughters-in-law of Lee Hysan. Christina is 95 and Helen is 96 – and they have indeed witnessed the evolution of Causeway Bay. As children, they remembered a piece of bare land with a few streets and some private residences and warehouses. Over 95 years, the descendants of Lee Hysan have helped transform this area into arguably the world’s most prosperous and dynamic commercial district.

The Lee family is still strongly connected to Causeway Bay, especially through our commitment to the community. It is really a continuation of my grandfather’s vision through our contribution to entertainment and finding ways to create a community lifestyle for the locals. It is our long association with the area and our strong family bond that has brought so many generations together to celebrate today’s event.

The opening of Lee Garden Three is a landmark for Hysan. Our rendition of retail has a bold emphasis on lifestyle and wellness, and our office tenants range from premier global financial institutions to pioneering co-working brands. We are setting a new precedent for property development which further propels Causeway Bay into the district where you can hear the heartbeat of Hong Kong.”
