From late patriarch Kwok Tak-seng's humble beginnings selling groceries and zippers, the Kwok family has ascended to dizzying heights among Hong Kong's landed elite. Sun Hung Kai Properties - now controlled by Kwok's younger sons Thomas and Raymond - has built some of world's tallest and most iconic skyscrapers. Closer to the ground, the company touches the lives of millions through a web of subsidiaries.
