WHAT IS THE PEARL
The Pearl is more than a skyscraper. It is an idea, a philosophy, a dream. A marvel of technology and architectural design.
Inspired by the ancient fable The Pearl and the Dragon, it stands 3500 feet tall in the heart of Hong Kong. The enormous “Pearl” at the top lends the building its name.
With its luxury amenities, it is truly a self-contained city in the sky. Come to live, work, and play in the clouds.
