HONG KONG, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Office Tower of Heartland 66, Hang Lung Properties' first large-scale commercial development in central China, is now open for leasing. Tenants are expected to move into the Grade A Office Tower in the second quarter of next year.
The large-scale commercial development is conveniently located on Jinghan Avenue in bustling Qiaokou District, the commercial and business heart of Wuhan, with light rail and mass transit railway accessibility. It comprises a shopping mall, an office tower and planned serviced apartments, with a total gross floor area of 450,000 square meters. The 61-story Office Tower, with a floor area of around 140,000 square meters, is set to provide its tenants with the unique Hang Lung branded experience with a full suite of advanced facilities, sustainability elements, caring designs and outstanding customer services, fully realizing Hang Lung's strategies of "being customer-centric" and "embracing technology".
Mr. Derek Pang, Director – Leasing & Management of Hang Lung Properties, highlighted that Hang Lung has been investing in the property market on the Mainland for close to three decades, building world-class landmarks in the prime locations of various cities. He said, "The commercial market in Wuhan, as a rising star among the first-tier cities, has becoming more mature with diverse industries. As a critical commercial hub of central China, Wuhan has attracted top local and overseas businesses to set up their regional headquarters in the city, driving higher demand for Grade A offices. Since Heartland 66 is poised to become a new world-class landmark of Wuhan, our Office Tower as part of the commercial complex will provide our tenants with a premium workplace environment and a unique experience essential to a vibrant urban lifestyle."
The unique design of Heartland 66 also speaks of its character from an architectural perspective. Designed by the world-renowned architecture and design firm Aedas, the project is inspired by the auspicious Ruyi Knot, taking the form of an "infinity loop" which not only symbolizes the blessings of fortune and luck but also signifies dynamic flows and never-ending cycles. In terms of hardware, the key features of the Office Tower include high-technology facilities such as the double-deck high-speed lift, as well as sustainability elements such as the rooftop garden and an air quality monitoring system with a PM2.5 purifying function. Tenants will also enjoy an exceptionally high-quality workplace environment with several bespoke amenities such as nursery rooms and executive restrooms with showers, complemented by the outstanding customer service provided by Hang Lung's professional Service Delivery team.
Mr. Peter Leung, Director – Project Management of Hang Lung Properties, said, "Heartland 66 is a combination of world-class design, modern facilities, human touches and sustainable elements. In order to meet our customers' needs, we examine every item in detail, fully reflecting our customer-centric principle and creating premium conditions for international businesses as our potential tenants."
He added that Heartland 66 has attained the "Precertification under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Core and Shell Development – Gold Level" issued by the U.S. Green Building Council, which once again recognizes Hang Lung's dedicated involvement and remarkable performance in sustainable development.
