Cityplaza (Chinese: 太古城中心) is a shopping centre in Taikoo Shing, Hong Kong Island. It is owned by Swire Properties. The shopping centre is connected to Tai Koo MTR Station, the six-level mall houses more than 170 shops, restaurants, a cinema and an indoor ice rink. Meanwhile, it is connected with three office buildings called Cityplaza One, Cityplaza Three and Cityplaza Four.

Cityplaza constantly updates its seasonal decoration, and also has frequent art, sport and other exhibitions in the public space near the MTR station.

History and development[edit]

Phase I[edit]

Cityplaza was completed in 1982. As there was no MTR connection yet, double decker buses were used as a free shuttle service when the Island Eastern Corridor expressway was finished in 1984.[citation needed]

There are six storeys in Phase I, with many locations having changed.

The 1/F used to be a Standard Chartered Bank with the remaining space for car parking, until 1987 when a big renovation saw the area converted into retail stores, including Marks & Spencer.

After the relocation of Wing On Department Stores, the former space was left unoccupied for over three years. Only in 1999 was it leased to Citysuper Log-On, and later fashion store Uniqlo.

Phase II[edit]

Phase 2 after renovation in 2015
Phase 2 new food court TREATS opened in late 2016

Phase II was completed in 1987. As there was a hole in the southwest corner of 2/F (opposite Cafe de Coral), one could see part of Whimsy's mini roller coaster ride, but this was filled after the latter's closing down in 1990. There were also large neon advertisements in the middle of Phase II, but these were removed after a big renovation in 2002 and 2014.

The old food court, including Burger King, Oliver's Super Sandwiches, Mario's, Fairwood, were originally situated next to the ice rink. It was closed in 2001 and replaced by the another food court on the 3rd floor, called Food Republic. In Dec 2016, a new food court, TREATS, opened in the original shop of Maxim's Palace. It provides bread, cheese sandwiches, fresh juices, Hong Kong style barbecued food & noodles, pasta, salad, sushi, sahshimi and Bento. Two restaurants, Cha Cha Room (Dim Sum) and Minh & Kok (Vietnamese food) are also situated inside TREATS.

Office space[edit]

Cityplaza has 1,700,000 sq ft (160,000 m2) of Grade A office space, in Cityplaza One, Three and Four.

Cityplaza has offered a three-hour free Wi-Fi access. Also, the mall provides two carparks, namely Cityplaza Carpark and Taikoo Shing Stage 10 Carpark.[1]


Located in the 1/F, the shopping mall has the longest running ice skating rink in Hong Kong named "Ice Palace".[2]
