JLL Shanghai Office Relocates to HKRI Taikoo Hui


​​Move to Inspire​

Shanghai, February 27, 2017 - To further improve employees' and clients' experience and encourage cooperation and innovation, JLL Shanghai office relocates to HKRI Centre One, HKRI Taikoo Hui - a new city landmark on February 27, 2017.

​This is part of the "Move to Inspire" themed campaign in JLL China this year, where its , Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Chongqing are relocating to new locations. The campaign aims to not only create personalised, trend leading coworking spaces, but also fulfil the firm's pursuit of sustainability.

JLL Shanghai's new office enjoys a prime location. Situated on Shimen Road in Jing'an District, the HKRI Taikoo Hui complex features immediate access to metro Line 13 and is adjacent to Lines 2 and 12. HKRI Taikoo Hui is also set to become a vibrant commercial landmark and retail destination.

The design of the new office embraces a flexible, coworking style that encourages collaboration, openness, win-win, knowledge-sharing and innovation.

As an industry pioneer in real estate services, JLL takes pride in how the new Shanghai office's design fosters employee well-being. The office's design, energy efficiency, facilities and materials all strictly follow the standards of two certifications - the LEED v4 Platinum and the WELL Platinum. JLL Shanghai aspires to become one of the first offices in Asia Pacific to obtain both platinum certifications.

​​​Healthy living and sustainability is reflected in every aspect of the new office. Interestingly, the office's areas are named after geographical features. For example, levels 22 and 23 are named as "Southern Hemisphere" and "Northern Hemisphere" respectively. The areas of each department are named after the seven continents. The reception area is named as "Equator Club," while the coffee area is called the "Aurora Café." Additionally, all meeting rooms and interactive spaces are creatively named after natural landscape such as rainforest, cataract, and canyon.

Smart technology has been applied in the new office. A variety of the latest high-tech products are installed in the office to improve staff productivity and user experience through the interaction between virtual and real-world environments. For instance, Microsoft HoloLens uses hologram technology to project digital content into 3D imagery, thereby allowing cutting edge virtual interaction. In addition, traditional telephones will no longer be in use. All employees are given access to internet-based tele-communications via laptop computers or smartphones, thereby realizing a wireless office.

Eddie Ng, Managing Director of JLL East China, said with delight: "With more than twenty years in the industry, JLL Shanghai office - the company's first branch in mainland China - enjoys the largest business scale among its China entities.  I am convinced that the relocation and upgrade of our Shanghai office will be another key milestone for the firm, and will allow JLL's over two-century-old brand to continue to prosper in Shanghai and China. The move also inspires us to achieve the next level of service excellence and new ambitions!"

​Set up in 1994, the Shanghai office helped establish JLL's presence in mainland China. From a small handful of employees in its early years, JLL Shanghai quickly expanded and consequently opened the Pudong office in 2007. Today, the Shanghai office has a team of more than 400 experienced professionals and 2,900 on-site staff.
