The Hong Kong office market is conventionally grouped into a number of classes according to a definition based on property quality. The Hong Kong Rating & Valuation Department, a government body, provides a commonly used classification system, ranging from older small floor plate buildings (Grade B & C) to those developed by Portfolio Landlords, with the latest in technology and sustainability (Grade A).

Grade A is the highest generally recognised category. While there is no set guideline by the government grading system, the following summary provides an insight to an industry wide classification of three quality tiers:  Grade A, Grade AA and Grade AAA.
