Citibank Plaza is a modern glass and steel office complex in Hong Kong that comprises Citibank Tower, ICBC Tower, a 3 level basement garage capable of accommodating 558 vehicles, as well as a retail podium. With a gross floor area of almost 1,600,000 sq ft (150,000 m2)., Citibank Plaza is one of the biggest office complexes in Hong Kong, capable of serving a working population of over 10,000. At 205 metres tall, Citibank Tower reaches up to the 50th floor. The highest floor on ICBC Tower is the 40th. Completed in 1992, it was one of the first office buildings in Hong Kong to incorporate intelligent building and environmentally friendly features.
Citibank Plaza is considered by many to be one of the Central District’s iconic structures. Besides its two characteristic curved reflective facades, the complex contains many distinct architectural features, such as the flexibility to join 26 floors of both towers to provide an enlarged floor plate of up to 34,000 sq ft (3,200 m2). Two ten-storey tall frameless glass panels provide the main lobby with natural lighting and allow visitors to “look thorough” the building. In recognition of excellence in the area of architectural design, Citibank Plaza was presented with the Hong Kong Institute of Architects’ highest award in 1994, the Silver Medal.
