Building in Kowloon
Located in the Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate in Kowloon, this facility will sit on partially reclaimed land and will be one of the most efficient data centers in Asia (in stiff competition with our upcoming facilities in Singapore and Taiwan).
Google is proud to call Hong Kong home to one of our data centers.
In September 2011, we announced that we had acquired 2.7 hectares of land in the Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate in Kowloon, with plans to build a data center.
Building this data center in Hong Kong is an exciting step for us. More new Internet users are coming online every day here in Asia than anywhere else in the world. They are looking for information and entertainment, new business opportunities, and better ways to connect with friends and family near and far. We’re building this data center to make sure that our users in Hong Kong and across Asia have the fastest and most reliable access possible to all of Google’s services, so they can do just that.
We are also really excited about the facility itself. At a long-term investment cost reaching USD 300 million, this data center will be one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly in Asia, built to the same high standard we use around the world. It will also provide jobs for around 25 full time Googlers and a number of part- and full-time contractors in a variety of roles, from computer technicians and electrical and mechanical engineers to catering and security staff.
We hope that this site helps answer any questions you have about our Hong Kong data center. We’re honored to have this opportunity to continue to grow with Hong Kong and we look forward to getting to know our new neighbors.

Why did Google choose Hong Kong County?
Hong Kong offers an ideal combination of reliable energy infrastructure, a skilled workforce and a location right in the center of Asia, which has made it a trading powerhouse and a great place to provide services to our users around the region and globe. As with all of our facilities around the world, we chose Hong Kong following a thorough and rigorous site selection process, taking many technical and other considerations into account, including location, infrastructure, workforce, reasonable business regulations and cost.
