Maritime Square (Chinese: 青衣城) is a four storey shopping centre located on Tsing Yi Island in Hong Kong. It was built and is owned by MTR Corporation (MTRC) in conjunction with the opening of Tsing Yi Station. Maritime Square is directly connected to Tierra Verde (盈翠半島; jing4 ceoi3 bun3 dou2), a private housing estate that was also built by MTRC.
Opened in April, 1999, the shopping centre has a floor area of 46,000 square metres (500,000 sq ft). The landlords claimed in December 2004 that daily pedestrian traffic at the mall is 170,000.
Maritime Square is the first shopping mall in Hong Kong adopting ocean and navigation as the design theme.
Maritime Square houses a total of 140 shops. There are a wide variety of restaurants, bookstores, fashion stores, electrical appliances stores, supermarket, cinema and banks, etc. Numerous types of restaurants are available. For example, fast food restaurants like Cafe de Coral, traditional Chinese restaurants, cafés like Starbucks and restaurants providing Japanese and Thai food. There is also a Hong Kong Jockey Centre, which is the first off-course betting branch of the Hong Kong Jockey Club to be opened on the island.
Maritime Square aims to provide the best environment for shoppers. The following various customer services are available at the Customer Service Centres:
- Enquiries on mall promotional activities and transportation information
- Wheelchair lending (within the mall area only)

The MTR is expanding the shopping centre onto the site of the Tsing Yi lorry park. Some oppose the plan because it will block the already crowded skyline. The MTR broke ground on the $2.4 billion project in 2015 and work is expected to be completed in 2017.
