Fodor's Review

The land was gifted to the public by the Hongkong & Shanghai Bank (HSBC, whose headquarters dominate the southern end), with the proviso that nothing built on it could block the bank's view of the water. The Victorian–Chinese hybrid building on Statue Square's east side was built for the Supreme Court in 1912 and is now home to the 70-member Legislative Council (LegCo), often the focus of the demonstrations that have become a fixture of Hong Kong life since 1997.

In front of the council building is the Cenotaph, a monument to all who lost their lives in the two World Wars.
