Wing Lee Street (永利街) is a street in Hong Kong. It is located in Sheung Wan near Shing Wong Street, Bridges Street, Ladder Street and the Former Hollywood Road Police Married Quarters.

In Wing Lee Street, there are some old Hong Kong 1960s buildings. The street has been described as "the seediest street in Hong Kong" and the Urban Renewal Authority planned to redevelop Wing Lee Street with Staunton Street as H19 project. But after Echoes of the Rainbow was filmed at this street and won the Crystal Bear for the Best Film in the Children's Jury "Generation Kplus" category at the 2010 Berlin Film Festival, the redevelopment plan was scrapped.

 

永利街(英語:Wing Lee Street)是香港上環一條街道,位於上環南部必列者士街以南、樓梯街與城皇街之間,東西走向,有九幢建於1950年代初的唐樓。該處以保留香港1960年代特色而著名,柏林影展得獎香港電影《歲月神偷》也是在此取景。

永利街已被納入市區重建局重建項目,原本只會保留其中三幢唐樓,其餘重建為住宅大廈。《歲月神偷》導演羅啟銳與部份居民希望保留該條街道的原有風貌。《歲月神偷》獲柏林影展最佳影片水晶熊獎後,爭取完整保留街道的聲音增大,市區重建局於2010年3月16日宣佈,將永利街剔出重建項目,劃為保育區,現正有待城市規劃委員會審議。
