Tencent – New massive headquarters set to complete in June 2017

Built at a cost of USD 600 million, the new headquarters for China (and global) technology powerhouse, Tencent, will be ready next year in June. As the owner of Riot Games (developer of League of Legends), majority shareholder of Epic Games (developer of Unreal Engine), and proud owner of Supercell (developer of Clash of Clans), it may seem like the money spent is loose change.

Located in Shenzhen, China, Tencent hired American firm NBBJ to build the behemoth of a skyscraper. NBBJ also created the buildings of Amazon, Google, and Samsung. Employees can expect rooftop gardens, running tracks, spa centres, rock-climbing facilities, restaurants, and many more amenities. Pony Ma Huateng, founder and CEO of Tencent, apparently took an active role in the design process.

It is said that holographic guides will help people to get around the 2 massive buildings, though there is nothing solid to show now. Being a “high-tech” office building of the future, air-conditioning temperatures will also automatically adjust according to the average temperatures of each room, along with using WeChat to search for the optimal parking lot. The list goes on, and I am in awe!

  1. Yeah, I guess form follows function.

    Just curious on who Tencent is going to buy next maybe the Xbox division. And the building headquarters can look like an “X”
    A little humor. But seriously I hope that Tencent would consider buying or creating
    a super hero IP like City of Heroes. If they can get Transformers why not.
    Just my Twocents, there I go again and the hits just keep coming.

  2. Jesus christ..Tencent is just awesome. I wish they could buy all the online games in the world, I mean they can but would it be smart ?
