Located in Shenzhen, southern China’s major financial centre, Kingkey Finance Tower is part of a 417,000 sq/m mixed-use development designed by Farrells Hong Kong Office. Farrells won the commission to design the Kingkey Finance Development in an international competition which included several leading architectural practices.

The Tower design is slim and non bisymmetrical with a spectacular atrium hotel lobby at the uppermost-levels. Kingkey Tower contains 210,000 sq/m of accommodation and 72 floors, 173,000 sq/m of Grade-A office space that sits over six-levels of retail development at the base of the tower.

The retail mall opened in November accommodating luxury brand stores and Shenzhen’s only IMAX cinema and will be directly connected to a new station linking Kingkey Tower and Development to Shenzhen’s Metro System. The Development includes five other 100m tall residential and two 100m commercial towers above the retail podium.
