618 Shanghai Street comprises a cluster of 14 buildings of 3 to 6 storeys, mainly built from brick walls, stone plaques and wood, at nos. 600 to 626 Shanghai Street, Mong Kok. Among the buildings, 10 balcony-type tenement houses of 3- to 4-storey were built in 1920-1926 and were rated Grade 2 historic buildings in 2010. The remaining 4 post-war reinforced concrete buildings each of 6-storey were built in 1963-1964.

Balcony-type tenement buildings (Ke lau) were typical shophouses, with the upper floors used as living quarters and the ground floor for commercial use, combining the architectural features of shophouses in Southern China with Western shopping arcades. Such balcony-type tenement buildings were popular in Guangdong and Hong Kong from the end of the 19th century till the early post-war period, forming a key feature of commercial streets in Hong Kong at that time.

618 Shanghai Street is a preservation-revitalisation project offering a variety of local lifestyle shops and restaurants. It also offers venues for community events at the ground lobby and a multipurpose room.
