Although the station is called Lai Chi Kok, it is located in Cheung Sha Wan. Passengers can use this station to access the western and southern part of Cheung Sha Wan. Western Cheung Sha Wan used to be an industrialised area, but in recent years, several residential developments have been built on the reclaimed land, namely Banyan Gardens, liberté, The Pacifica, Aqua Marine, and Hoi Lai Estate. There is a pedestrian tunnel to connect these developments.
In addition, industrial buildings are being demolished and being rebuilt into brand new commercial buildings. The re-purposing of industrial units into office and retail units has led to the station having a high stream of passengers during peak hours.
The Chinese name of the station does not use the commonly used character 荔, but the character 茘 instead, which is the correct one according to the Kangxi dictionary. The same is true for Lai King station.
