The factory estate was built by the Resettlement Department in 1966, in order to relocate squatter factories and cottage workshops. In 1973, the management of the estate was taken over by the Hong Kong Housing Authority. In 1997, the clearance of the estate was completed. In 2001, two small blocks were built in the site.

Long Ching Estate [ edit ]
Long Ching Estate (Chinese: 朗晴邨) is the site of the former Yuen Long Estate. The former estate had five buildings and was demolished in 2001. Originally the Housing Authority planned to build three 32-storey blocks on the land. However, the District Council believed the land should be privately developed to boost the local economy. The government eventually divided the land in two, offering part of the site for private development of Yuccie Square.
The new estate comprises two blocks of non-standard design offering 483 flats. It is designed to accommodate about 1400 residents.
