China Building, the first of the three to be completed, is completely clad in a curtain wall of reflective glass and stainless steel. Of particular note are the recessed stainless steel spandrels and mullions which create the illusion of floating glass panels on all the facades. At ground-floor level, entry points to the building and public passageways are strategically located to facilitate the flow of pedestrian traffic at one of the busiest street corners in central. In terms of massing, the tower is set back from Pedder Street to present a symmetrical facade on its Queen’s Road frontage.
