Hong Kong: AIA unveils new group headquarters

| 28 May 2024

AIA Group (AIA or the Group) has opened its redeveloped group headquarters at 1 Stubbs Road, Wan Chai in Hong Kong. The AIA Building is Hong Kong's first urban campus and is wholly owned, operated and solely occupied by AIA.

Mr Edmund Tse, AIA Group Chairman, Mr Lee Yuan Siong, AIA Group Chief Executive and President, and the Honourable Michael Wong, Acting Financial Secretary of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region delivered remarks at the opening ceremony. 

Mr Tse said, “I am enormously proud to commemorate the reopening of the AIA Building. The original building was inaugurated in 1969 and marked the first expansion of commercial office buildings outside of the Central Business District. The opening of the new AIA Building represents the start of another exceptional chapter in our history and is a testament to our enduring heritage, achievements in and commitment to Hong Kong.” 

Mr Lee said, “The reopening of our headquarters is a significant milestone for AIA in our over 90-year history in Hong Kong. Our state-of-the-art urban campus provides an engaging workplace environment to nurture the best talent in the industry. From the AIA Building, we will continue to drive AIA’s long-term growth and fulfil our purpose to help people in Asia live Healthier, Longer, Better Lives.”  

The AIA Building will be home to around 1,800 employees at full capacity. The 22-floor campus features an indoor running track, a continuous 80-metre atrium staircase, fully equipped gym facilities, and a multi-purpose sports hall. 

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations were core to the redevelopment of the building, which has obtained leading green building credentials including platinum ratings across LEED, WELL and BEAM+ pre-certifications. Sustainability features include 80 electric vehicle chargers, rooftop solar panels and a biodiesel generator with self-sustaining power supply.
