Spearheaded by Wong&Ouyang architects, Swire’s new office tower One Taikoo Place tops out and will accommodate companies including Facebook and Baker McKenzie
One Taikoo Place tower, designed by Wong & Ouyang, is the first of two new triple Grade-A office towers in the Taikoo Place redevelopment project by Swire Properties. The building is one of the key components of the HK$15 billion Taikoo Place redevelopment project, which aims to position the area as a new major commercial hub.
More than half of its 1 million sqf has already been pre-leased, said Swire, with tenants including Baker McKenzie and Facebook. February's topping-out ceremony also marked the official launch of The Refinery, Swire Properties' private members' club at Taikoo Place. Additional plans for the redevelopment of Taikoo Place include more public and green space.

A proposed Taikoo Square and landscaped gardens designed by London-based landscape-architecture practice Gustafson Porter + Bowman will connect the office buildings on the ground floor. One Taikoo Place, Two Taikoo Place and the eight other office towers will be connected by an air-conditioned walkway designed by Paris-based design company Hugh Dutton Associés.
