About us

The Parkview Group

The Parkview Group is a conglomerate of private companies owned by the Hwang family. Parkview’s roots lie in the Chyau Fwu Group, a pioneering construction and development business founded in Taiwan by Mr. C.S. Hwang in the 1950s.
Principally focused on major infrastructure projects, Chyau Fwu was a key player at the vanguard of Taiwan’s early development. As the company moved into property investment and development, Chyau Fwu cemented a reputation for top-end landmark projects that set new benchmarks for quality and innovation.
In the 1980s, the family expanded their base and investments to Hong Kong. At this time, they acquired at Government auction a major new residential site for development. The Hong Kong Parkview project was an ambitious achievement with a total investment of HK$4 billion. 20 years on it is still widely recognised as the territory’s most innovative and luxurious large-scale residential complex.
In his lifetime, Mr. Hwang instilled a strong vision and a set of values that remain at the heart of all our businesses. His tireless, uncompromising spirit and strict adherence to the highest building standards, craftsmanship, materials and design research lives on. The driving force behind everything we do is our core philosophy of creating and delivering landmark destinations.
Under the direction of four of Mr. Hwang’s sons, the Parkview Group of today has diverse investments in Europe and Asia ranging from the exploration and production of natural oil and gas, top end residential and hotel developments, to cutting edge construction and materials research facilities. It has always been our firm belief that there should be no boundaries: geographical, cultural or otherwise in business. The diversity of interests is only possible because the four brothers have their own independent and individual responsibilities in addition to the family trust investments. This has enabled the family to grow in different areas without losing the strength of the legacy of C.S. Hwang, and the core value that he has instilled in them all – the perpetual quest for achievement through endeavour and humility.

Building Blocks

Place
Often an off-centre location where design is key to realising our vision for a new destination.

Purpose

The Sons

Mr. C.S. Hwang (1926‐2005) has four sons in the family business. They were all educated at boarding school in North Wales. Each of them went on to obtain degrees in different fields.
George, Victor, Richard and Tony have degrees in Building Technology, Finance and Economics, Civil Engineering and Banking respectively.

The Quest of Mankind

With our first breath, each and every human being sets out on the journey of life.
How does it happen that there are those who leave an indelible and historic mark on the face of mankind, and others live and die without a trace?
Those whose lives have inspired us through their achievements past and present have all understood that journey of life to great achievement is never an easy route.
The Quest begins with having the intelligence of vision and enlightenment. It requires the determination to exert great effort and activity to ascertain their goals. In times of difficulty, one must have the strength of courage and endurance to persevere. In doing so, one embraces the spirit of the Quest of Mankind.
Success is to be congratulated, however, one must embrace the philosophy of Altruism, which requires that accomplishment comes through peaceful means and with a noble heart and it is this that rewards one with real achievement in live.
