The First Skyscraper in Hong Kong Celebrates 50 Years

Jardine House, the first skyscraper in Hong Kong, is marking its 50th anniversary through a series of public talks, exhibitions, guided walking tours and an annual charity event beginning July 2023.

The 52-storey structure, designed by P&T Group and built by Gammon Construction, had the fastest lifts, largest air-conditioning chillers and distinctive circular glazed windows overlooking the Victoria Harbour upon completion in 1973. BaseHall, a fluid space for multi-concept dining and events on its basement level, was launched in June 2020.


Located in Central, the international business hub with BEAM Plus Platinum certification currently houses financial services companies, law firms and luxury brands, among other tenants.

Up to USD100 million are invested annually by Hongkong Land towards modernising Jardine House and other buildings in the district. A footbridge constructed by the developer to link the tower to Chater House and General Post Office in the 1970s has since been expanded into the Central Elevated Walkway. —Construction+ Online
