Seeing the proliferation of ‘lifestyle malls’ in the shopping haven of Tsim Sha Tsui on Hong Kong’s Kowloon side, developer Chinese Estates Holdings engaged Woods Bagot for its ability to create bespoke retail environments that stand apart from the competition. The developer wanted to appeal to a younger generation of shoppers and pleasure seekers through a diversity of retail spaces and entertainment options.

The major challenge in this design proposition, with 29 levels of largely identical floor plates, was to cultivate a dynamic and engaging retail layout that avoided monotony.

With all units leased out, the property boasts the most highly sought-after retail space in Hong Kong’s competitive market. Key tenants include an international cinema house, gym and fitness facilities, a multi-level high-end home goods store, and an array of award-winning and starred dining and drink outlets.

Through its enthusiastic reception, The ONE has demonstrated the place for malls in our modern communities — communities that come together in these new public spaces.
