Light Be is a specialist in social housing and tenant development. Starting in 2010, Light Be has pioneered social realty projects, launched Hong Kong’s first social housing network Light Home and the first social housing building Light Housing. Many innovations have been made by Light Be, such as delinking rent from market rate, integrating social housing with tenants’ personal development, engaging property owners to form a housing network, renovating idle building for transitional housing, and many more.
Who we are
Light Be has flexibly untapped the social potential of properties, and over the years has developed a “tenant development” oriented management model to promote diversified personal development.
Light Be has over a hundred flats in 15 districts over Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. Light Be has adopted an one-stop management approach from engaging property owners to promoting tenants’ personal development.
In 2009, Ricky Yu, the Founder and CEO of Light Be, introduced the vision of social realty. Yu resigned from his previous corporate management position, founded Light Be, and has received support from Social Ventures Hong Kong, Lee Hysan Foundation and Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation on various innovation and development projects.
