Project Details

Client Represented: DFS
Location: One Taikoo Place, 979 King's Rd, Quarry Bay
Size: 60,900SF


After more than 25 years in Chinachem Golden Plaza, DFS wanted to relocate to Hong Kong East. This would take them closer to the offices of LVMH, one of their major stakeholders. DFS was also looking for a more modern and agile fit-out of the office.


DFS wanted to relocate their global Head Quarters to a modern high-quality office in Hong Kong East. The challenge was to source contiguous space (60,000 sq. ft.) in a suitable building in Taikoo Place with unobstructed views of the harbour. 


CBRE sourced a three whole floor lease surrender opportunity in the best building in One Taikoo Place. DFS was able to inherit a previous fit-out at below market rental resulting in huge savings on rental and CAPEX. DFS then put its own stamp on the space by making some adjustments to the existing fit-out. This was a huge result for DFS as a cost neutral move for the business resulted in a significant upgrade in space.
