The Henderson



The Henderson is Hong Kong’s boldest new architectural masterpiece. The city’s most spectacular commercial development in Central, the most sought-after location in the world.

Exceptional and unforgettable, The Henderson will deservedly take its place among the world’s most iconic buildings — an icon amongst icons.

The form of The Henderson was inspired by the bud of the bauhinia flower, the symbol of Hong Kong. Designed by world-renowned Zaha Hadid Architects, it is a bud that is about to blossom, reflecting our aspiration for The Henderson to represent a new chapter in our vision, from legacy to future.
“My vision is to create a building like no other. Bringing together world-class architecture with our ambition to constantly innovate for people and for the future. To build an icon not just for Hong Kong, but also for the world.”
