Understanding the ultimate impact of the places we develop and manage have on society and the environment is crucial to our long-term decision making. In March 2020, we released our first Places Impact Report, focusing on Hong Kong’s Island East – an area in which Swire has been invested for over 135 years – and addressing the question “What makes a great place?”.
Examining both the tangible and intangible attributes of Taikoo Place and other developments, the report assessed how our placemaking and placekeeping efforts have shaped the Island East community. This innovative approach to assessing our developments has broadened how we define success and will inform and enhance our work in the future.
We are currently working on our second Places Impact Report which will focus on the area around Taikoo Li Sanlitun in Beijing’s Chaoyang District.
