CITIC Tower (中信大廈) is an office building on Tim Mei Avenue, Admiralty, Hong Kong. It is the corporate headquarters of CITIC Pacific Ltd, a conglomerate publicly traded on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and listed on the Hang Seng Index, and also a subsidiary of the CITIC Group.

This 33-storey prestigious commercial tower is also the headquarters of another development partner, Kerry Group.

It is one of the participants in the nightly A Symphony of Lights (幻彩詠香江) light show on both sides of Victoria Harbour.

Design and construction[edit]

The Tower was conceived as an equilateral triangular block and modulated in the shape and soft landscaping at various levels through the creation of innovative sky gardens. The state-of-art architecture was designed by the renowned P&T Group. Its unique design composed of equilateral triangles and circles is rarely seen in Hong Kong.[4]

CITIC Tower was completed in 1997 under a fast track development programme.

Location and facilities[edit]

It borders the Tamar site in Admiralty, with a stunning 180 degree view of Victoria Harbour, and boasts a rooftop garden, shopping mall and carpark. There is a footbridge connecting it with Admiralty Centre and MTR Admiralty Station.

Of the proposed government headquarters to be built at Tamar site, two of the taller buildings will be of similar height to CITIC Tower.
