Maritime Square is a four-storey shopping centre located on Tsing Yi Island in Hong Kong. It was built and is owned by MTR Corporation (MTRC) in conjunction with the opening of Tsing Yi station.

History

The shopping centre opened on 1 April 1999 and has a floor area of 46,000 square metres (500,000 sq ft). The landlords claimed in December 2004 that daily pedestrian traffic at the mall is 170,000.[1]

MTR expanded the shopping centre onto the site of the Tsing Yi lorry park.[2] Some opposed the plan because it blocks the already crowded skyline. The MTR broke ground on the $2.4 billion project in 2015, and work was completed in 2017.[2]

Design

Maritime Square is the first shopping mall in Hong Kong adopting ocean and navigation as the design theme.

Shops

Maritime Square houses a total of 140 shops. There are a wide variety of restaurants, bookstores, fashion stores, electrical appliances stores, supermarket, cinema and banks, etc. Numerous types of restaurants are available. For example, fast food restaurants like Café de Coral, traditional Chinese restaurants, cafés like Starbucks and restaurants providing Japanese and Thai food. There is also a Hong Kong Jockey Centre, which is the first off-course betting branch of the Hong Kong Jockey Club to be opened on the island.[3]
