The Central Police Station Revitalisation Project is an important initiative to conserve and revitalise the heritage site comprising the Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison for adaptive reuse.  Its significance was recognised in 1995 when the Central Police Station, the Central Magistracy and the Victoria Prison were designated as Declared Monuments. 
A partnership between the Hong Kong SAR Government and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Project aims to transform the unique cluster of historically significant buildings in Hong Kong into a centre for heritage, contemporary arts and leisure for the public to enjoy.
The Project includes the conservation of 16 buildings of historical or architectural significance and several open spaces on the approximately 3.37-acre site.   To support the activities on the revitalised site, two new buildings will be built to provide additional floor space for contemporary art and exhibition areas and plant rooms, and will help to reduce interventions to the historic buildings. It is aimed that the new-builds will carefully inject fresh elements within the fabric of the existing buildings, adding new functions and synergy to the unique historic character of the site.
