Hong Kong’s Central business district is home to many financial and professional services firms.

The majority of Hong Kong’s premium offices are in Central, including One & Two International Finance Centre, One & Two Exchange Square, Chater House, AIA Central, Cheung Kong Center, and York House. These trophy (Grade A1) buildings command some of world’s highest office rents.

Keen to stand out among their competitors, many mainland Chinese corporates choose to rent premium office space in Central. They leased about one fifth of the floor space in Central’s Grade A office market in 2015.

Central office rental ranged from HK$70 - HK$140 psf net (for 10,000 sf new letting in mid zone) in 2015, but prices may come under downward pressure in 2017 due to large-scale new offices developments coming online in Quarry Bay, Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, and Kowloon.
