Cheung Kong Center

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

This 62-story, 1.2 million-SF tower is situated on a site with impressive views of Victoria Harbor and maintains an individual presence in the cityscape. LEO A DALY, along with Cesar Pelli & Associates, used a detailed linen finish, stainless steel skin, clear glass fenestration and fiber-optic lighting to create the tower design, which provides a lantern-like beacon above the harbor.

Meeting feng shui design demands, public areas at the base of the tower are situated below grade to prevent money from flowing out of the building. The innovative structural engineering design includes an award-winning curvilinear footbridge linking the structure to Hong Kong’s extensive footbridge system and a 1,000-car parking garage — the deepest garage excavated to date in Hong Kong.
