As part of Hongkong Land’s sustainability objectives,
we have committed to keeping our properties in
prime condition at all times. Ongoing upgrades
to our Central portfolio are therefore essential.
Our recent upgrade efforts have revolved around
renovating the toilets in each of our properties, as
well as modernising the lifts. To upgrade our toilets,
we introduced various measures to reduce water
consumption – including water-efficient flushing
mechanisms, self-flushing urinals and sensor-operated
faucets. To save energy, we installed motion-sensor
activated LED lighting, and to save paper, we have
installed sensor-activated hand-dryers. We also
introduced double-decker toilet dispensers and Forest
Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper towels.
The toilet renovation project is over halfway there.
Renovations have completed at Exchange Square
and Jardine House, Alexandra House is set to
complete this year, while toilet renovations for
Prince’s Building, Gloucester Tower and Edinburgh
Tower will finish in 2017.

We are also in the process of modernising our lifts
to improve energy efficiency and the travelling
experience for lift passengers. In Jardine House,
Gloucester Tower, Edinburgh Tower and Alexandra
House, we have already introduced the latest
technologies, including energy regeneration, and
variable lift speeds to save energy, using superior
microprocessor controls to reduce travel time.
We have also upgraded the lift cars themselves
to enhance the passenger experience. By 2018,
lifts at Exchange Square will also benefit from the
