About This Project

AIG Tower is located in the Central District of Hong Kong, on a site that was most recently home to the former Furama Hotel. Developed as a joint venture between AIG, CapitaLand, and Lai Sun Development, the building holds further distinction as the site where AIG opened its first office in the territory in 1930. The architectural design draws upon the visual imagery of Chinese junks that were vital to the city’s economic growth. The building’s form, tapered at its base and apex on three sides of the building, evokes the sails of the vessels which once crossed Victoria Harbor.
