HONG KONG.- Christie’s will relocate its Asia Pacific headquarters in 2024 to The Henderson, a striking new urban landmark on Murray Road in Central, Hong Kong designed by Zaha Hadid Architects for Henderson Land Group. With 50,000 square feet of art-inspired space anchoring four storeys within the new tower, Christie’s will be able to provide exceptional service to its clients with its first year-round saleroom and state-of-the-art gallery presence in Asia. Its iconic new home in the luxury centre of the city is poised to become a worldwide destination for collectors, with a signature profile on the Hong Kong skyline.

This investment affirms Christie’s leadership in Asia and commitment to the region, further strengthening the firm’s capability to connect and better serve the rapidly growing number of Asian collectors through an unrivaled global network of salerooms and specialists. The decision not only underscores Christie’s confidence in Hong Kong as the preeminent art and culture hub in Asia, but also testifies to the strong resilience of the art market in the region and beyond.

Francis Belin, President, Asia Pacific, commented, “This unprecedented initiative, together with our presence in Beijing, Shanghai, and other key cities in Asia, will enable Christie’s to respond to and build upon the recent record surge in worldwide collecting we have seen from Asian clients, who contributed a record 39% (over US$1Billion) to our worldwide live and online sales in the first half of 2021. Our Hong Kong saleroom also achieved record results of HK$3.5 Billion/US$458 Million this Spring, our highest since 2013.”

“The establishment of our first year-round saleroom and gallery space in Hong Kong provides us with the long-needed flexibility to transform our sales and events schedule from two main seasons a year, to year-round programming, and to embrace opportunities for greater creativity and innovation. Designed to meet the unique business needs of an international auction house, our new galleries at The Henderson are ideal for Christie’s presentation of large-scale artworks, live auctions, private sales and educational programs,” continued Belin.

“We are very proud to begin this momentous new chapter in Christie’s history with Henderson Land Group. The Henderson’s unique and forward-looking design is itself a work of art, perfectly complementing the exquisite masterpieces that Christie’s offers across the globe. We look forward to The Henderson’s completion in 2023, and engaging collectors in Asia and beyond at our new headquarters in early 2024,” added Belin.

Martin Lee Ka-Shing, Chairman, Henderson Land Group, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Christie’s as the first anchor tenant of The Henderson. This tenancy agreement has been concluded two years ahead of The Henderson’s completion and is a vote of confidence both in Henderson Land’s abilities as a world-class developer, and in Hong Kong as an international business hub with close financial integration with Mainland China. By working in close collaboration with some of the world’s leading businesses such as Christie’s, and great minds like Zaha Hadid Architects, which has designed The Henderson, we hope to take the lead in the business sector in enabling and driving post-pandemic economic growth.”

Both Christie’s and Henderson Land Group share a common vision for the environment and a long-term commitment to sustainability. Christie’s is the first international auction house dedicated to a global sustainability initiative with a commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030. The state-of-the-art sustainable design of the Henderson, which has received LEED Platinum and WELL Platinum pre-certification together with the highest 3-star rating of China’s Green Building Rating Program, supports Christie’s leadership in conducting business responsibly for the environment.
