Henderson Land Welcomes Carlyle as New Tenant of Its Flagship Commercial Development The Henderson

Henderson Land Development Company Limited ("Henderson Land" or “the Group”) (Stock code: 12), is pleased to announce that The Henderson, the Group’s highly anticipated flagship commercial development at Murray Road, Central, has signed an agreement to lease with Carlyle, a leading global investment firm, making it The Henderson’s new tenant.

The Group welcomes Carlyle’s Asia Pacific headquarters to The Henderson. Carlyle’s Hong Kong subsidiaries, including AlpInvest Partners Limited, will occupy about 20,000 sq. ft. of office space at The Henderson. So far, two prominent international businesses, including Christie’s, have confirmed their leases at The Henderson, ahead of its scheduled completion in 2023.

Commenting on this new partnership, Dr. Martin Lee Ka-shing, Chairman of Henderson Land Group, said: “We appreciate the trust placed in us by Carlyle, which has chosen to relocate its Asia Pacific headquarters in Hong Kong to The Henderson as it continues to grow and expand its more than two-decade presence in the region. Henderson Land and Carlyle share a common vision of shaping a smart and sustainable future for all, as well as a commitment to spurring positive change and building long-lasting value for our people. This partnership is yet another affirmation of our efforts to champion innovation and sustainability in our work, and of Hong Kong as an international financial hub to continue to play to its core strengths and rise above the challenges posed by the pandemic. As a world-class developer, we hope to team up with more of the likes of Carlyle to contribute to the long-term prosperity of Hong Kong.”

Last year, The Henderson secured a landmark tenancy agreement with the world-leading art and luxury auction business Christie’s, which will occupy four office floors totalling about 50,000 sq. ft. as its first year-round saleroom and gallery space in Hong Kong. With a state-of-the-art, innovative and sustainable design, The Henderson is the realisation of a future workplace that will allow great ideas and smart business to flourish from within. It is highly sought after by businesses that share the Group’s aspiration to harness forward-thinking designs and technologies to enhance sustainability and workplace quality. With a professional and innovative team, Henderson Land strives to provide tailored solutions to its tenants and facilitate their future business and operations at The Henderson.
