Ms Ava Chiu, Associate Director, The Wave
Co-working space is a fast and growing trend around the world where people, irrespective of the
activities they are engaged in, come together to share a common working space. It is also an
expanding segment of the commercial properties market in Hong Kong. Having shared facilities in a
convenient and centralised location provide occupiers a ready-made solution for all premise
requirements. The flexibilty and availability of co-working spaces also attract a wide range of users,
from entrepreneurs to corporations.
With the initiatives from the Hong Kong Government’s revitalisation policy, The Wave was
transformed from an older industrial building to one with diverse utilisation of mixed use in CBD2
location. It differentiates from the typical co-working environment as the building also houses event
venues, retail spaces and dining options for enhanced synergies among its occupants. Participants
on the technical visit will be able to inspect a completed A&A project and appreciate how asset
enhancement results from such revitalisation.
About the speakers
The Wave was revitalised from an industrial block to provide a new and commercial option for
occupiers in Hong Kong. By fostering diversity and collaboration within the community, their visions
are to provide affordable workspace, co-working and retail facilities, and business supported services
to assist local businesses to suceed. The building complies with fire protection requirements,
disability access, parking provisions, etc as stipulated by the government for buildings of mixed use.
