Metroplaza Office Towers

The two Metroplaza Towers, are the tallest in the area of Kwai Fong and are therefore the landmarks of the area.

The towers are situated above the shopping centre. MetroPlaza Tower 2 is the taller of the two towers, rising 47 floors and 209 metres (686 ft) to the top of its decorative spire and logo.[2] The building was completed in 1992.[3] It was designed by architectural firm Wong Tung & Partners, and was developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties.[2] MetroPlaza Tower 2, which stands as the 41st-tallest building in Hong Kong, is composed entirely of commercial office space.[3] The building is an example of postmodern architecture.[3]

MetroPlaza Tower 1 has the same roof height and floor count as MetroPlaza Tower 2, but is significantly shorter due to the absence of a spire; the building does not even rank among the 100 tallest structures in the city. The tower rises 47 floors and 174 metres (571 ft) in height.[4]

Tenants include: 16th Floor: Texwinca Holdings (德永佳實業有限公司), the parent company of Baleno[5]
