Grade A Office Building Nestled in the Heart of Kowloon East, the CBD2 of Hong Kong
The Quayside is a 23-storey building developed to offer a complete and comprehensive offering of well-designed and sustainable elements. A modern hub of commerce and lifestyle, overlooking a prestigious, panoramic harbour view, the Quayside obtained not only Platinum rating for both BEAM Plus and LEED (Core and Shell), but also Gold Level for WELL CORE.
Being the regional headquarters of notable companies including JP Morgan, Bupa, Gammon, Adidas and Link, it is envisaged to be a new force in sustainable lifestyle by building a community that engages occupants and visitors in the spirit of co-sharing; a place-making hub in a constant and inspiring dialogue with its surroundings.
The Quayside boasts over 40 green features maximising the utilisation of daylight and energy saving. On its 24,000-sq-feet cozy podium garden on 3/F, there is an electricity-generating jogging track that could turn a step into a second of glow of three-watt light bulb. The newly invented air induction units cut energy consumption by 65% yet yielding a seven-fold air movement. To facilitate air flow and maximise sea views, the building’s orientation is shifted by 45 degrees, while its architectural fins tailored according to the solar movement provide shading from bright light and reduce heat load. To encourage green travelling, its 400 parking spaces are all equipped with electric vehicle chargers, making the property one of the most electric-car-friendly buildings in Hong Kong.
