Quarry Bay is an area beneath Mount Parker in the Eastern District of Hong Kong Island, in Hong Kong. The western portion of the area was also formerly known as Lai Chi. Traditionally being an industrial and residential area, there is an increased number of commercial buildings in this district over the past 2 decades.
A huge part of Quarry Bay is owned by Swire (Tai Koo in Chinese). In the past, Swire used Quarry Bay as a traditional commercial area for the Tai Koo Dockyard, Tai Koo sugar factory, and the Swire coca-cola factory. Now, Quarry Bay had been transformed into a big residential area with high rise commercial buildings and two large shopping centers. The hillside was converted into Kornhill apartment complex, the reservoir into Mount Parker Lodge apartments, the Dockyard into Taikoo Shing, a very huge apartment estate, the coca-cola factory is now Kornville apartment, and Taikoo Sugar transformed to Taikoo Place, a group of commercial high rise buildings.
