MetroPlaza (Chinese: 新都會廣場), also written as Metroplaza and Metro Plaza, is a high-rise development located in the Kwai Chung district of the New Territories in Hong Kong. The complex contains two towers situated above the Metroplaza shopping centre: MetroPlaza Tower 1 and MetroPlaza Tower 2. MetroPlaza Tower 2 is the taller of the two towers, rising 47 floors and 209 metres (686 ft) to the top of its decorative spire and logo.[2] The building was completed in 1992.[1] It was designed by architectural firm Wong Tung & Partners, and was developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties.[2] MetroPlaza Tower 2, which stands as the 41st-tallest building in Hong Kong, is composed entirely of commercial office space.[1] The building is an example of postmodern architecture.[1]

MetroPlaza Tower 1 has the same roof height and floor count as MetroPlaza Tower 2, but is significantly shorter due to the absence of a spire; the building does not even rank among the 100 tallest structures in the city. The tower rises 47 floors and 174 metres (571 ft) in height.[2]
