Dear Buildings Department,
I am writing to request a list of buildings in Hong Kong and its relevant information (number of storeys, basements and units).
I am aware that a similar database exists at https://bmis1.buildingmgt.gov.hk/bd_hadb..., but I was unable to download the entire database.
May I ask if it is possible to provide the information in a CSV format, with the following columns whenever possible?
1. Building ID (1108244086 - Hong Kong Pacific Centre, 亞太中心)
2. Number of Storeys (in this case, 18)
3. Number of Basements (in this case, 0)
4. Number of Units (in this case, 254)
If including the Building ID is not possible, it can be replaced by the name of the building, or its address.
Thank you very much.

Pursuant to the powers under the Buildings Ordinance (BO), the Buildings
Department (BD) is responsible for the enforcement of the safety and
health standards for the planning, design and construction of buildings
and associated works on private land. The BO aims to provide for the
planning, design and construction of buildings and associated works by
setting therein the structural and fire safety and health standards.

For your information, our Department’s Building Information Centre
provides inspection and copying service of building / minor works records
and occupation permits for all private buildings. However, the Centre
does not keep records on pre-war buildings, exempted houses in the New
Territories and previous Housing Authority buildings sold or disposed of
to the private sector such as home ownership scheme buildings, tenants
