HONG KONG | Two Taikoo Place | 191 M

Two Taikoo Place is a Grade A office tower being redeveloped in the eastern business district of Quarry Bay. The first tower has already been completed while construction of the second tower is under way. The entire area is becoming a rival office district to Central with cheaper rents and an MTR station nearby.

I’ve been to HK and loved it, but most of the city is a fetid PoS.

It's the older "filthy" areas that give a city character.

Swiss bank Julius Baer leases office space in Swire’s Two Taikoo Place, Quarry Bay, in biggest ‘decentralisation deal’ since 2018
South China Morning Post Excerpt
May 5, 2021

Swiss private bank Julius Baer will move into Swire Properties’ new 41-floor skyscraper, Two Taikoo Place in Quarry Bay, in what Colliers described as the largest “decentralisation deal” in more than two years in Hong Kong.

The bank, currently based in Central, said it has leased four floors of the office building, which is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2022.

Swire said it has successfully secured its first anchor tenant, which is from the finance sector and will take up four floors covering 100,000 square feet of the new building, but did not provide further information. The company would not say whether it was referring to Julius Baer.

Blend of old Brutalism and contemporary glass apparently yields something genuine to the streetscape.
