The Skyscraper Boom there sure is fast!

Many highrise apartments shot up in just a short period of several years.

Hope Downtown would be as fast!

They also demolished all those old lowrise houses opposite Whampoa Market. I expect more development on my next trip down there.

The Rocca Balestier seems to be freaking tall for a 17 floor building? I could see it rising like a monster from the CTE!

Reminds me of Ferrero Rocher.
