Warehouse is housed in what was once Aberdeen Police Station. In 19th mid- century, the first Aberdeen Police Station was established. Due to the growing population in southern district in late 19th century, Hong Kong government determined to exploit the hummock near the seashore along Aberdeen Main Road. A new Police Station (two-storey building of red bricks) was built in 1891. It became a Marine PoliceTraining School in 1969 when a modern police station was built in Staunton Bay. After a full-scale renovation in 1995, it changed to the site of The Warehouse Teenage Club. To reflect the significant historical value of the building, The Antiquities and Monuments Office has classified Warehouse as Grade 2 historical building.




Origin of Warehouse The Warehouse Teenage Club (Warehouse) is a registered charitable non- profit making youth centre for youngster between the ages of 13 and 25. The Warehouse was founded in 1992 by the late Professor Frank White who, at that time, was teaching at the University of Hong Kong. He observed many Hong Kong's youngsters lacked a purpose in life and space to develop healthy hobbies, and loitered in the streets after school. Some even became addicted to alcohol and abused drugs. Determined to find a safe place for youth to develop healthily and holistically, Professor White and his like-minded associates championed the need for The Warehouse Teenage Club.





Because of the change in policy in youth development in 2012, Warehouse came to a stop on 17 December 2012. Warehouse has been idle for about 1.5 years. Red-brick construction can still be kept in good condition. It is now vacant but there should be regular maintenance and cleaning. If not, Warehouse would be very dirty.
