Cityplaza (Chinese: 太古城中心), located in Taikoo Shing in the Eastern District of Hong Kong Island, is one of the shopping malls operated by Swire Properties (太古地產). The mall forms the Island East development with Taikoo Shing and Taikoo Place. The mall has a total of six floors. There are also three large commercial buildings, Cityplaza One, Cityplaza Three and Cityplaza Four. A popular ice skating rink, Cityplaza Ice Palace, is located at 1/F Cityplaza.

Cityplaza constantly updates its seasonal decoration, and also has frequent art, sport and other exhibitions in the public space near the MTR station.

History and development
Phase I

Cityplaza was completed in 1982. As there was no MTR connection yet, double decker buses were used as a free shuttle service when the Island Eastern Corridor expressway (東區走廊) was finished in 1984.

There are six stories in Phase I, with many locations having changed.

The 1/F used to be a Standard Chartered Bank with the remaining space for car parking, until 1987 when a big renovation saw the area converted into retail stores, including Marks & Spencer.

After Wing On Department Stores (永安百貨) moved to its current location, the former space was left unoccupied for over three years. Only in 1999 was it leased to Citysuper Log-On, and later fashion store Uniqlo.

Phase II

Phase II was completed in 1987. As there was a hole in the southwest corner of 2/F (opposite Cafe de Coral), one could see part of Whimsy's mini roller coaster ride, but this was filled after the latter's closing down in 1990. There were also large (outdated) neon advertisements in the middle of Phase II, but these were removed after the big renovation in 2002.

The food court, including Burger King, Oliver's Super Sandwiches, Mario's, Fairwood, were originally situated next to the ice rink. It was closed in 2001 and replaced by the new food court on 3rd floor.

Office Space

Cityplaza has 1,700,000 sq ft (158,000 m2) of Grade A office space, in Cityplaza One, Three and Four. One Island East, a 70-storey Grade A office building, is due for completion in March 2008. This new development will add another 1,550,000 sq ft (144,000 m2) of office space to the Island East portfolio.
