One Taikoo Place: a next-generation sustainable office building
One Taikoo Place, our new triple Grade-A office tower, is designed to high standards and is targeted to achieve BEAM Plus and LEED Platinum ratings. From conception to design and construction, it has incorporated the concepts of innovation and experimentation that underpin our SD 2030 Strategy.
These innovative measures include use of a waste-to-energy tri-generation (electricity, heating and cooling) system – a first for commercial buildings in Hong Kong – that will use biodiesel from waste cooking oil collected from our F&B tenants for fuel. This system has the potential to contribute up to 2% of building energy. One Taikoo Place also features a smart lighting system that makes adjustments based on time of day, lighting levels and occupancy; a combined green roof and solar PV system and ample green space; and rainwater collection and grey water recycling.
One Taikoo Place is expected to be completed in 2018.
