Thanks to Moddsey who notes the building was completed in 1933, and Raymond who gives the opening date as 6th October that year.

With the completion of the Praya East Reclamation in 1929, the modern and imposing structure of the Luk Kwok Hotel can be read here in the Hong Kong Daily Press dated 17 August 1933. As the Hotel was located on the waterfront, it is interesting to note that 4 Chinese charcters were painted at the rear of the building facing Johnston Road for the purpose of attracting potential patrons travelling by tram.
