What a bummer, szehoong! I bet you felt awful and totally frustrated when that happened to you, and at the Parkview of all places!

I really feel sorry for you about that disappointment.

But as you say, you will have another opportunity to take pictures of that magnificent building!

And take your time ... I will enjoy seeing your pictures but I'm very patient.

Hmm I also took a couple of pics of this beauty during my visit but they´re pretty much the same as these pics presented here. And besides...I took mine through the window of a bus so they´re not very high quality either But anyway, I really like this building, it´s well decorated and has all these nice statues and such to make it even more interesting. And the colour of it separates it from the mass also. It stands tall there located next to a nice park (hence the name ) so it was a pretty unforgettable sight for me.

Parkview Square is called so because the developer has a property in HK also named Parkview.

The consultant is James Adams ,who designed the Cesar's Palace in LV!

In the URA gallery, the field around it would have buildings as tall as it.Hope it does not happen.Well, develope the row at NSSH instead, but do not demolish it.

Hmm...remember there was an announcement recently about developing open spaces in the downtown area for interim uses? This field was one of those slated for it.
