If any, it won't be too much taller than Oak Hill. I didn't notice anything significantly taller when viewing the skyline.

I'm laughing at how they're saying the SCL is going to make Oakhill more attractive... Nobody is going to bloody walk to HKCEC station from Oakhill when Wanchai station is much closer!!

Don't forget the target reader isn't the ordinary HK people that knows everything, or even know the SCL is going to be way out at HKCEC like us.
The developer is going to put down everything that can raise the price tag and attractiveness of the development, even if they are BS.

In fact, the poster is only claiming the SCL and HKCEC are going to make the district more livable and attractive, and so does the Oak Hill. It isn't claiming the proximity amongst all three, and advertising with false information. It didn't even make any connection.

Bottom line, the poster got you in the trap as it is supposed to!

We need to be very skeptical of the property developer's ads. There was a scandal a while back on a developer providing photos of a nice house but ultimately they were not selling that house but the lifestyle resulting from living in that house. It was a highrise development. Sounds like a lot of trivial BS.

Would you advertise an apple with a banana and tell people the banana's lifestyle is what draws people to the apple?

They might as well start saying that our HSR is going to make the whole city more attractive and so you should buy Oakhill :P

I used to pass this block everyday back in secondary school, and my dad used to live there. He is very surprised that his old home now became some huge residential tower.

130 new units - wonder how much car parking spaces they have in it, and I have no idea how they could get their cars out coz the area is already quite clogged up.

TD and the District Board must have approved/agreed a TIA saying the new vehicle trips generated by Oak Hill will not make the area congestion problem worst.

So do you believe the traffic engineering science, or would you believe your eye?

Guess they may over-assume people would take taxis and public transport rather than drive their cars everywhere. I wonder how many levels of parking they need given the building is so tall?

Of course it does!
As you said, "The developer is going to put down everything that can raise the price tag and attractiveness of the development, even if they are BS."
