South of Hollywood Road – Soho – is a vibrant cityscape bordering the famous Mid-levels escalator, the world’s largest outdoor covered escalator linking the Central business district with the higher streets of Mid-levels and, a little lower down the hill, Soho.
Properties: a mix of commercial and mid to high-rise - mostly compact - residential. The area became more popular after the escalator was completed in 1993, particularly with expats seeking cheaper rent minutes from Central. Many think of Soho as the nightlife mecca of Elgin and Staunton Streets. But quieter, leafy side streets with character-filled residential buildings are tucked behind the façade.
