Mei Foo Sun Chuen (Chinese: 美孚新邨; lit. "Mobil new estate") or simply Mei Foo (美孚) is a large private housing estate in Hong Kong. It was the first private housing estate in Hong Kong and at the time of completion, the 99 tower complex was considered the largest private housing development in the world, accommodating up to 60,000 people in 13,500 apartments. At the time of building, the government was tackling the serious squatter hut problem by constructing public resettlement estates for citizens without homes (especially those displaced by the Shek Kip Mei fire). At the time, a flat in Mei Foo cost around HK$40,000.

 

美孚新邨(Mei Foo Sun Cheun),位於香港九龍美孚,港鐵美孚站上蓋物業,並由匯秀管理有限公司管理。美孚新邨於1968年建築完成及入伙,共有99座住宅樓宇,提供 13,149 個住宅單位,為全球樓宇數目最多的住宅屋苑。
