Cattle Depot (Ex-Ma Tau Kok Animal Quarantine Depot), with a total site area of 16,200m2, is the only surviving pre-war cattle slaughterhouse in Hong Kong. It was constructed in 1908 and served as a slaughterhouse (abattoir) and quarantine base until mid-1999. Renovation and conversion works took place in 2001 to convert the depot into an Arts Village for local artists relocated from the Oil Street Arts Village in North Point. The site area for Cattle Depot Artist Village is about 7,541 m2 and there are a number of tenants there, who are either individual artists or artistic organisations. In 2009, the depot was confirmed a Grade II historic building by the Antiquities Advisory Board. The ownership of the site is now belonging to the Development Bureau (DEVB), which is responsible to explore the possibility of revitalizing Cattle Depot in the long run.
