Time Out says

Located at the foot of Jardine’s Lookout, Haw Par Mansion was built by Haw Aw-boon, aka ‘The King of Tiger Balm’ in 1935. The mansion’s garden became Hong Kong’s first theme park and was immortalised in popular media like Street Fighter II. Sadly, in 2004, the garden and its exotic ornaments were torn down and replaced by an immense residential complex, The Legend. In 2017, the mansion itself was converted into a private music school known as The Haw Par Music Farm. Only time will tell if this monument will continue to be preserved.
