Bank of China (BOC) Tower is located at No.1, Garden Road, a flourishing centre of activity in Hong Kong's business and financial core. The Tower was constructed in April 1985. Completed for occupancy in August 1989 and was opened in May 1990, towering 70 floors above the ground floor level and offering parking in four basement levels. The tower structure of 315 metres and two masts of 50 odd metres give the building its aspiring height of 368 metres – which, in 1989, made it the tallest in Hong Kong as well as the fifth by height in the world. It is still one of the tallest buildings in Hong Kong.

The BOC Tower is a masterpiece of the world-renowned Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei. His inspiration for the building's construction was the elegant stature of bamboo, its sectioned trunk reaching higher and higher with each new growth. The Tower is symbolic of strength, vitality, growth and enterprise, representing Bank of China (Hong Kong)'s rapid development. The building is characterised by a harmonious blend of modern architecture with traditional Chinese design. Its four prism-shaped shafts reflect the sun's rays like a glittering crystal. A geometrical work of art clad in a curtain wall of glass and aluminum, BOC Tower rises majestically from its Central location to command a spectacular panoramic view of the Victoria Harbour.

The BOC Tower has won many construction and green awards locally and globally. To name just a few, it has won UKAS ISO14001:2004 Environmental Management System Certification 2016; "Excellent" Award of Hong Kong Building Environmental Assessment Method 2002; Ten Best Architecture in Hong Kong, HKIA, 1999; Marble Architectural Award 1992; AIA Reynolds Memorial Award 1991; Award for Engineering Excellence, ACEC, 1989; Certificate of Engineering Excellence, NYACE,1989, etc. Its architect, I.M. Pei, also received the Smithsonian Institute's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement on 10 October 2003, an honour bestowed upon him by the United States Government.
