  • Organization Profile
  • The Link Real Estate Investment Trust ("The Link" or "The Link REIT") is Hong Kong's first and largest real estate investment trust. Their 180 retail and car park facilities are on the doorstep of nearly 40% of Hong Kong's population. Its properties are where its customers shop for their daily needs.

    The Link REIT's portfolio consists of approximately 11 million sq ft of retail space and 76,000 carpark spaces and boasts a large and diverse tenant base, including retailers of varying sizes in a wide array of trades. Some of them are Hong Kong's best-known retail and restaurant brands.

    The Link REIT was listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on 25 November 2005 (Hong Kong stock code: 823), as part of a divestment exercise by the Hong Kong Housing Authority. 100% of the units of The Link REIT were sold at the Initial Global Offering.

    The current investment strategy of The Link REIT's manager, The Link Management Limited (the "Manager"), is to invest in sustainable income producing properties in Hong Kong that are mainly for retail and carpark use and to maximise their value through asset enhancement works encompassing physical structure, trade-mix, customer service and promotional activities. As these enhancement projects progress, they can offer customers a better shopping experience with more choices at reasonable prices, whilst improving returns for unit holders.




  • Environment and Sustainability Highlights
  • Saving resources is the foremost step for protecting the environment. The Link proactively adopt various environmentally-friendly materials and measures in their operations to minimise its impact to the environment. A few highlights include:

    • Use of environmentally friendly bricks produced from recycled industrial waste in renovation works
    • Use of paper endorsed by Forest Stewardship Council in the production of financial reports. The endorsement implies that timbers and fibers used for paper production are originated from well-managed forests. Moreover, the ink used for printing is extracted from vegetable oil
    • Staged implementation of the electronic payment system for car park users and the car park automation system. Paper consumption for issuing receipts can hence be minimised
    • Effective control of lighting and air-conditioning systems, making the best out of natural resources available: such as adopting interior design with the best use of natural wind and sunlight to reduce energy consumption, installing sensors in less crowded area to control the rating of the lighting and air-conditioning systems and operation hours
    • Use of refuse collection bins that are made of biodegradable plastic/fiberglass which are in compliance with European accreditation standard of environmental protection
    • Use of biodegradable chlorine-free recycled toilet papers
      Recycling of used materials, such as decorative plants for Christmas and Chinese New Year, used printer cartridges
