Hysan Place (Chinese: 希慎廣場) is a shopping mall and office building at 500 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. It was developed by Hysan Development Company Limited at the former site of Hennessy Centre and was designed by international architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox.[2] It was opened on 10 August 2012.[3]

The building[edit]

Hysan Place is a 36-storey retail/office building. Other facilities include a four-storey car park and retail basement, covering a total gross floor area of approximately 710,000 square feet and a site area of around 47,738 square feet. Construction work is carried out by Gammon Construction. The contract value is HK$1.5 billion (US$193 million) and is set to complete in November 2011. Hysan Place is the first Hong Kong building that has achieved pre-certification of the highest Platinum level under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).[1]

Upon completion Hysan Place will comprise a 40-storey mixed-use tower that provides panoramic harbour and mountain views. There are 15 levels of office space and some 17 floors of retail outlets, totaling 710,000 square feet. It will be connected to the public transportation network and is directly linked to the MTRC's Causeway Bay Station.[4]

The shopping mall[edit]

The development includes 42,000m2 of retail space spread over 17 levels that has been pitched as, ‘The Place for all things Stylish’. The contemporary retail interior was designed by Benoy using a monochrome palette and organic geometric architectural lines. Eslite book store is reported to be renting 40,000 sq ft or 3 floors of retail space at Hysan Place.[5][6]

American fashion brand Hollister California plans to open its first store in Hong Kong Island next year in a 20,000-sq-ft space in the mall, at a monthly rent of over HK$1 million, or HK$50–60 per sq ft.[7]

Office tenants[edit]

Hysan Development Company Limited announced the first office tenant for Hysan Place as KPMG, the international accounting firm on 13 June 2011. KPMG has signed a nine-year lease for the 20th to the 25th floors of the building, taking up an area of approximately 80,000 sq. ft.[8]
