    An earlier version of Hong Kong Club Building was one of the last examples of Renaissance architecture, which remained in Hong Kong. Its construction was completed in 1897, and carried him almost a century later, in June 1981. This building was replaced by the current present.

    Hong Kong Club has experienced several "reincarnation." The first three-story building in the classical style was founded in 1846. In 1897 the club moved to a larger location on the waterfront. Soon, members of the club decided to upgrade their places of origin. Lack of funds instead of waiting for the reconstruction of the building wear.

    As a result, the Victorian building was demolished in June 1981. In its place appeared
    25-storey building. Hong Kong authorities have taken all the costs of the demolition themselves in exchange for rental income of the upper floors for 25 years. That's why 17 of the upper floors were rebuilt for offices.

    Now there is a wide range of companies and organizations: Commerzbank, online brokers Charles Schwab and Rolls-Royce Motors, Libertas Capital Asia Limited, Institute of Financial Planning, as well as several other accounting firms.
