Hysan Place: The Journey Begins


Hysan Place is Hong Kong’s latest landmark of retail shopping and offices and is home to major international and local corporations. It truly stands out among its peers because it is also the most sustainable mixed-use commercial building in Hong Kong, as shown by its top level global recognitions.

Hysan Place: The Journey Begins is a documentary that takes a behind-the-scenes look at the planning and preparation that went into this remarkable project, as well as the challenges throughout its construction in the heart of one of the world’s busiest commercial districts. The video also highlights Hysan Development’s historic links to Causeway Bay and the company’s progressive mindset that ensured the building benefits the community while remaining a commercial success.

“This documentary took four years to complete,” said Mark Tung, Hysan’s Assistant General Manager of Corporate Communications. “We browsed through Causeway Bay’s history, followed the front line people to drill through the gorgeous but tough layers of granite, chatted with designers on the whys, whats and hows of constructing a green building in the middle of a bustling city, sneaked into corporate meetings to see how retailers prepare for shop openings, and generally absorbed everything that comes with completing a world-class building project. We are so glad we did it, and it certainly showcases our blood, sweat and smiles!”

Having seen this video, you are sure to look at the mall or the offices in a different way the next time you go to Hysan Place!
