Opus Hong Kong is a visionary collaboration between Frank Gehry, one of the world’s most influential architects, and Hong Kong developer, Swire Properties.
Opus Hong Kong is a sculptural 12-storey building comprised of two double-level garden apartments and 10 apartments of some 6,000 sq ft, each unique in design and occupying an entire floor of the building.
Perched on a hill with a sweeping, unobstructed panorama of Hong Kong Island, the location on Stubbs Road has been owned by the Swire Group for 60 years.
Hong Kong is now the most expensive place to take office space, according to the latest figures from Knight Frank.
Hong Kong’s prime office space, which includes the city’s bustling Central district, was renting for as much as a monthly HK$1,046 (US$135) per square meter last year, a growth of 28%.
By contrast, growth in London’s spiffy West End – formerly the world’s most expensive – slowed last year after a rapid 31% climb in 2010.
Hong Kong Airlines has launched its all business-class service between HK and London, another stage in the revival of a type of travel many thought would die out.
The new all-premium plane touched down at London Gatwick March 8, adding a new type of service to a route already well-served by the likes of Cathay Pacific, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Qantas and Air New Zealand.
The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, located on the 102nd to 118th floor of the ICC building in West Kowloon, will soon be operating the world’s highest chef’s table.
Located on the 102nd floor of the hotel at 420 metres above sea level, the Chef’s Table is a private dining room with separate sofa area and an open kitchen.
All menus are tailor-made by executive chef Peter Find to suit guests, and the chef’s table is priced at a minimum spend of HK$14,000 (US$1,805) plus ten percent.

Louis Vuitton launched a new short film series February 22 hoping to capture the essence of different cities from across the globe in relation to gender.
Hong Kong is the subject of the debut film, which presents the Asian destination as if it were a woman with appearances from students, various career women and rising star in Asian cinema Grace Huang.
Directed by Jean-Claude Thibaut, who has previously collaborated with Armani, the film is the first in a series to be uploaded on Louis Vuitton’s YouTube channel.
