Contract Value:

Construction Period:
1991 Q2 - 1999 Q3

TaiKoo Place, Hong Kong

Swire Properties has redeveloped the site of the old TaiKoo Sugar factory in the Quarry Bay district of Hong Kong Island into TaiKoo Place: 4.1 million square feet of Grade A office and light industrial space, all linked by a network of pedestrian footbridges. Conveniently located for public transport and adjacent to Swire's massive TaiKoo Shing residential development (built by us in the 1970s), TaiKoo Place has become the hub of the new, emerging Island East business district.
We have worked closely with Swire Properties on this visionary urban regeneration project, and have built nearly 2.3 million square feet of office space for TaiKoo Place, comprising:

Devon House:

A 29-storey, 830,000 square feet office tower on a 4-level basement car park. Built using top down basement construction (as were all of our subsequent buildings in the development), we designed and incorporated in the building, cost saving post-tensioned floor slabs.

Contract value: HK$800 million
