General Post Office is the headquarters of Hongkong Post. Built in 1976, it is located at Connaught Place
, Central, Hong Kong
. The office is adjacent to former Star Ferry
Pier, Jardine House and International Finance Centre. The current building occupied a seafront location until 2007, since then reclamation works take place there.
The building was constructed on reclaimed land. In 1967, the Government had planned for a 30 storey block, with 5 floors for the GPO, and 25 for government offices.The site directly to its south was secured by Hongkong Land at a record price. In exchange, the Government was obliged to accede to a stipulation that no building directly to the north of Connaught Centre, now Jardine House, would obstruct its views, thus the maximum height of the GPO building was limited to 120 feet.
