HONG KONG, May 25, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - Champion Real Estate Investment Trust (stock code: 2778) announces that its Grade-A office complex in Central Citibank Plaza, will be renamed "Three Garden Road, Central" effective 28 June 2016, after the completion of major asset enhancement works. Citibank Tower, one of the towers of the complex will also change its name to "Champion Tower". The name of the other tower "ICBC Tower" will remain unchanged.

As part of the initiative to continuously enhance the asset quality, the complex has undergone a series of improvement works at a cost exceeding HK$100 million in the past year. That includes the renovation of the office lobbies and the car park, as well as expansion of outdoor seating areas and landscaping, further reinforcing its image as a premium office building. In addition, the complex has improved the catering services by offering more popular alfresco dining venue. Pure Fitness, one of Asia's pre-eminent fitness centres, has also been introduced to the property, providing office occupants with a superior working environment and a better work-life balance.
"Three Garden Road" boasts a total floor area of 1,638,000 sq. ft. in two connected 47-storey and 37-storey office towers. Its current occupancy rate is around 95%.
