With the behemoth One Island East and Taikoo Place expanding its territory, Quarry Bay cements itself as one of the top commercial areas in Hong Kong, battling the traditional and overly-populated business district of Central. Both One Island East and Taikoo Place offer large spaces, are well equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, and houses tenants of over 300 major international corporations over different sectors, from banking and finance to several media and advertising giants.
