The Chinachem Group (“Chinachem” or the “Group”) is one of Hong Kong’s best-known and most prolific property developers, with a successful corporate history of more than 40 years. Still the largest privately held group of its kind.
The early years of the company were dedicated to exploration of, and investment in, agricultural projects and chemicals, but in the 1960s, the Group was one of the first to see the future of property development in Hong Kong and shifted its focus to the development of the city. It has subsequently contributed tremendously to the city, working to meet the needs of its citizens.
By the mid-1970s, Chinachem had grown from a burgeoning company into one of Hong Kong’s largest property developers. The group has consistently maintained its position as a forward-thinking pioneer in the industry, active in the development of new towns and districts in Hong Kong. Tsuen Wan, Kwai Chung and Shatin were all developed in large part due to the dedication and foresight of the Group. Through their consistent efforts to improve Hong Kong, the Group continues to create private residences for elegant living for a wide range of Hong Kong’s residents and families.
Today the Group boasts an impressive and diverse range of high-quality properties that span Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories, with business interests including hotel ownership and operation, residential and commercial properties, as well as retail and industrial interests in a number of Hong Kong’s best-known and most iconic buildings.
Chinachem has added to its portfolio of business interests on a global scale, investing in ventures related to its core businesses and associated industries, together with biochemistry, electronics, education and finance.
