Cityplaza (Chinese: 太古城中心) is an office and shopping development, owned and managed by Swire Properties, at 18 Taikoo Shing Road, Taikoo Shing, Hong Kong. It is adjacent to Taikoo Place, another office complex developed by Swire.
The six-level shopping centre, connected to Tai Koo Station, houses more than 170 shops, restaurants, a cinema and an indoor ice rink. Cityplaza constantly updates its seasonal decoration, and also has frequent art, sport and other exhibitions in the public space near the MTR station.
History and developmentEdit
Cityplaza was completed in 1982. As there was no MTR connection yet, double decker buses were used as a free shuttle service when the Island Eastern Corridor expressway was finished in 1984.
There are six storeys in Phase I, with many locations having changed. The first phase also included an office tower called Mount Parker House which has since been demolished and replaced with the East hotel.
Phase II was completed in 1987. As there was a hole in the southwest corner of 2/F (opposite Cafe de Coral), one could see part of Whimsy's mini roller coaster ride, but this was filled after the latter's closing down in 1990. There were also large neon advertisements in the middle of Phase II, but these were removed after a big renovation in 2002 and 2014.
The old food court, including Burger King, Oliver's Super Sandwiches, Mario's, Fairwood, were originally situated next to the ice rink. It was closed in 2001 and replaced by the another food court on the 3rd floor, called Food Republic. In Dec 2016, a new food court, TREATS, opened in the original shop of Maxim's Palace. It provides bread, cheese sandwiches, fresh juices, Hong Kong style barbecued food & noodles, pasta, salad, sushi, sashimi and bento. Two restaurants, Cha Cha Room (dim sum) and Minh & Kok (Vietnamese food) are also situated inside TREATS.
The shopping centre is host to the oldest ice skating rink in Hong Kong named "Ice Palace".
The cinema, MOViE MOViE Cityplaza was opened in 2017, boasting 6 widescreen theatres, including “MOViEMAXX” and one luxurious VIP house “MM Moments”.
MTR Tai Koo Station is accessible directly from the second floor of Cityplaza. The companion escalator running from the MTR station to Cityplaza was completed in April 2012. Shoppers can also get to the shopping centre by buses.
