The Central Government Complex is since 2011 the location for the offices of the Government of Hong Kong. Located at the Tamar site, the complex houses the Central Government Offices, the Legislative Council Complex and the Office of the Chief Executive of Hong Kong. These buildings have taken over the roles of several buildings, including the former Central Government Offices, Murray Building and the former Legislative Council Building.

Architecture[edit]

The new government building uses neither Chinese nor European government building designs, but instead it is a mix of postmodern architecture and low-frills international design.

History[edit]

This winning design was from the Gammon-Hip Hing group and scheduled to be completed in 2010. Construction was due to begin in mid-February 2008, for completion in 2011. It engaged more than 3,000 workers.[1]

Components[edit]

The complex consists of three blocks:
