The Quayside Show-suite Opens: A Preview of the “Smart City” Live-Work-Play Development Concept

The Quayside, the largest harbour front development and Grade-A commercial building in the emerging new Kowloon East CBD, jointly developed by Link REIT and Nan Fung Development, will shortly open its show suite to prospective tenants to experience first-hand the special features of this landmark development.

Using multimedia and interactive technologies, The Quayside show suite occupies over 1000 sq. ft., to give prospective tenants an exclusive preview of the new development concept of integrating work and living space. Visitors can experience the expansive sea-view environment of The Quayside, an embodiment of future generation urbanism and social hub providing an array of diversified dawn-to-dusk leisure and entertainment.

An integral part of the government's plan to energise ‘Kowloon Bay Action Area’, The Quayside occupies a prime location in the evolving financial artery along Hoi Bun Road as more multinational firms and financial institutions are moving into the area.   Envisioning a welcoming, healthy and sustainable office environment, the development provides easy access to the adjacent 1,000-metre-long Kwun Tong Waterfront Promenade with a 3.4 hectare sea-view garden, creating a place that engages its occupants 24/7, balancing their life, work and play.

The Centerpiece of Kowloon East

Filipe Leung, Assistant General Manager, Asset Management of Link Asset Management Limited, said, “The Quayside project has a total investment of nearly HK $10 billion with a lettable area of more than 900,000 square feet. The property is 23 floors high with each office floor measuring 50,000 square feet, which places The Quayside among the top five commercial projects in Hong Kong in terms of size of floor plate.”

The property has three levels of underground car parking for over 400 vehicles, all equipped with electric vehicle chargers to make The Quayside the most electric-car friendly building in Hong Kong. An icon for environmental sustainability as well, The Quayside has already achieved several awards and certifications including the "Best Futura

Project" award in 2017" in the MPIM Asia Awards.

Third-floor Podium Garden promotes sustainable development

The building features a podium garden of about 23,000 square feet of green space complete with jogging trails, quiet meditation spaces, and outdoor gym exercise bikes equipped with an innovative power generation function, which can be used by the public for the sustainable development of the community.

Exciting Excursions and Refreshing Retail Offerings

The rooftop has a private area for tenants to hold business functions or community activities to promote the development of "Start Kowloon East".  Beyond pure business, The Quayside is also a social hub with a wide range of dining choices, ranging from premium restaurants to healthy quick bites, so that friends, executives and business associates can gather and enjoy.
