ABOUT 8 OBSERVATORY ROAD

8 Observatory Road is a 50:50 joint venture re-development project between Henderson Land Group and Lai Sun Group. The newest office-cum-retail complex in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, 8 Observatory Road promises to be a magnet of vitality in the commercial heart of Kowloon. It is well served by an elaborate network of public transportation. Within walking distance are MTR stations, the China-Hong Kong Ferry Terminal and the future West Kowloon Terminus of the Express Rail Link while the Cross-Harbour Tunnel is just a short drive away.

The high-tech curtain-wall structure offers a commanding view of the Victoria Harbour to the south and Ho Man Tin to the north, making it one of the glitziest in the neighbourhood. But more than that, its four floors of retail space and five levels of eateries will add to the vibrancy of Tsim Sha Tsui as a shoppers’ paradise, a tourist destination and a popular night spot.

8 Observatory Road, the newest office-cum-retail complex in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui

The building features 19 floors with a gross area of approx. 183,400 square feet serving three distinct purposes – retail, dining and office. Internal access to all zones is made easy by three lifts serving the nine office floors and sky-dining on 21st floor and three others, the retail shops and restaurants. Those driving to the building will find ample parking in three underground levels, which feature 52 spaces for cars and loading and unloading bays.

From 10th to 20th level are office floors with a gross area of approx. 9,500 – 9,900 square feet each. Floor space is maximized by the minimal use of columns and a high ceiling with clearance of at least 3.3 metres. To ensure a safe and supportive environment for tenants and visitors, the complex is equipped with a full surveillance security system and will be professionally managed by Jones Lang LaSalle.

Strategic use of outdoor space is another element that sets the development apart. For those who work hard then play hard, alfresco dining in an oasis setting is enjoyment beyond food itself. With this in mind, the architects have installed open terraces on all F&B floors (from the second to the seventh level) and a sizeable open-air garden on the eighth floor. Best of all, the unit on the 21st floor offers a rooftop with a spectacular view, making it a prime location for fine dining. The minimum ceiling height for most of the F&B units is 3.65 metres.

Retail units come in sizes ranging from approx. 1,100 to 10,600 square feet gross. The façade of the building is a vantage point for advertising. The 30-metre LED display signboard further provides an attractive advertisement space to light up tenants’ businesses.

The building has achieved the Silver rating under the BEAM Plus New Buildings recognized by the Hong Kong Green Building Council.
