Hopewell Centre has been one of the significant landmarks in Hong Kong and regarded as an example of successful urban redevelopment. Since its completion, it has bolstered the development in the vicinity and contributed to Wan Chai’s evolvement into an important commercial district of Hong Kong. Following the success of the Hopewell Centre project, Hopewell Holdings Limited (HHL) initiated the plan of Hopewell Centre II (HCII) and obtained the planning approval from Town Planning Board in 1994.

In response to the concerns of the local community and weighting the need for a balanced economic development and greening of the neighborhood, HHL revised the development scale of HCII in 2008 by reducing the storeys of the building from 93 to about 55, so as to preserve the ridge line in the backdrop.

The HCII project is located in the southern part of Wan Chai, immediately to the west of Hopewell Centre. It comprises a conference hotel with over 1,000 guest rooms, a retail podium and a green park. It is estimated that the project will create about 4,000 job opportunities of different natures, during and after the construction period. These employment opportunities are in construction, hotel, catering and retail, including openings for professionals and management experts.
