Hytera held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new headquarters building in Shenzhen 8 September. Qingzhou Chen, chairman and president of Hytera, along with the senior management team and representatives from the contractor and supervision institution, ritually laid the foundation for the 200-meter high building at the ceremony, which kicked off construction.

With its completion in 2020, Hytera’s new headquarters building will be a new landmark of the Houhai area, which is planned by Shenzhen city as the hub of headquarters of global companies. The building has 6,000 square meters ground space and 120,000 square meters floor area. The total investment is around 3 billion Chinese yuan (US$455 million).

Hytera hired Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) to design the new headquarters building. SOM’s works include iconic buildings such as the Burj Khalifa tower and New York’s New World Trade Center.

The building will have two towers with full steel structure. The south tower will be 42 levels and more than 200 meters high, while the north tower will be about 50 meters high with around 20,000 square meters of floor area including four underground levels. The new headquarters building will be able to accommodate more than 6,000 employees.
