Well, the AIG (AIA) building came up many years before the old Ritz was demolished.

Tower rises against Central rent trend
The Standard
Thursday, August 23, 2012

Monthly rents in CCB Tower, a 31-story, grade A office building in Central scheduled for completion in December, have been set at between HK$150 and HK$160 per square foot.

That is much higher than at similar properties in the area. And the tower's leasing agent, Jones Lang LaSalle, has forecast a 7-12 percent fall in rents for top-tier Central offices in the second half.

Rents slipped 8 percent from January to July, and some grade A offices have seen plunges of up to 16 percent in the past 12 months.

Recent deals for space include HK$130- HK$140 psf at International Finance Centre and HK$100 psf at AIA Central, agents said.

At CCB Tower, once space for co-owner China Construction Bank (0939) is taken there will be 10 stories of 6,905-7,419 square feet per floor offered.

Lai Sun Group is the other owner of the tower on the site of the old Ritz Carlton Hotel. It is "ideal for medium-sized companies that want entire floors," according to Jones Lang LaSalle.

I agree, it was very unnecessary to demolish what was such a nice building for another glass box. Hong Kong's hotel market is basically always hot, and it could have been re-flagged a St. Regis or some Japanese chain.

The new tower will not be a hotel, but an office building, which requires very different floorplates. The old Ritz Carlton has moved across the harbour to a much grander facility at the top of ICC.
