Shun Tak Macau Helicopter Terminal

HF: Thanks to IDJ for initiating my interest in this subject. This image below shows the helipad at the Shun Tak Centre / Macau Ferry Terminal building in Central, Hong Kong. A scheduled Hong Kong to Macau service is operated from here by Sky Shuttle Helicopters (formerly East Asia Airlines). The facility was expanded to include two helipads in 2009.(1)

The Shun Tak Centre was built on the site of the old Macau Ferry Piers and the Sheung Wan night market. The first part, completed in 1984, was the easternmost section and No. 1 Tower, now known as China Merchants Tower. Originally No. 1 Tower was partly occupied by the Hotel Victoria, but this was never a success, and No. 1 Tower was later converted to all office use. No. 2 Tower, now called Western Tower, was built on a different orientation, giving the property on close examination a slightly asymmetric appearance.

Shun Tak Centre is a minor transport hub, with direct access to the Sheung Wan Station of the MTR, a bus terminal adjacent to the east, a large taxi stand, and the piers for ferry services to Macau and China. It is also convenient to the southern portal of the Western Harbour Crossing.(2)
