One Island East

The latest addition to TaiKoo Place is One Island East, located at the Aik San Building site on Westlands Road. It is the tallest office tower in TaiKoo Place. Attaining a height of 300 metres, it is the iconic landmark of the district. Its 70 floors incorporate 59 office floors. With a typical floor plate of 2,300 square metres, it provides a total office area of 140,000 square metres.

Shunning the conventional podium structure, the tower sits in front of a large landscaped open space to the east, which is designed as a series of platforms at different levels, interlinked by water features.
