The original Man Yee Building (Chinese: 萬宜大廈; Jyutping: maan6 ji4 daai6 haa6), initially built in 1957, was the first building in Hong Kong with escalators.1
Located between Queen's Road Central, Pottinger Street and Des Voeux Road Central in Central on the Hong Kong Island, the tower was demolished in 1999 and was rebuilt as a 35-storey (344 ft/105 m) tower with total office space of 290,000 square feet (27,000 square meters). It is owned by Man Hing Hong Property Management and Agency Company Limited and designed by architectural firm Rocco Design Architects Limited.
The new Man Yee Building was re-built in 1999, comprising:
Grade A office of more than 290,000 sq. ft. gross.
Prime shopping arcade of more than 80,000 sq. ft. gross.
Three levels of underground carpark of more than 100 parking spaces.
"Situated in the heart of Central, Man Yee Building is a premium site strategically located for direct access to the Hang Seng Bank Building, Exchange Square and IFC buildings. With a premier shopping arcade connected to the centre providing a thoroughfare between Des Veoux Rd and Queens Rd Central, and good access to both Hong Kong and Central MTR stations as well as the Central Elevated Walkway, Man Yee is a great location for any business. Man Yee Building also has a natural aesthetic design, with wood featuring strongly in the reception and meeting rooms that compliments its high ceilings."
