I love the shade of blue they used for the glass, it's different from 2IFC. This will be my favourite HK tower once it's complete. And I wish North America could have suburbs like this.

Nina Tower is very impressive. Locating it in Tsuen Wan is actually very good because it surpasses all the other buildings and it is just the focal point and the landmark of the district. From the Swimming pool in Tierra Verde (The residential complex above Tsing Yi MTR station), I can see that pinnacle rising up with strenth. It creates a very powerful image and makes the building stand out. Positioning it in HK island will just ruin this building and not make it as striking as it can be located in Tsuen Wan.

If it was on the island, it would look average.
-which shows how tall the island is

Nina Tower's setting is quite unique since Tsuen Wan district isn't a major highrise area. Most of the buildings in the core are industrial, but there have been some redevelopments when the KCR West Rail opened a station here last year.

Tsuen Wan used to be along the flight path to Kai Tak Airport, hence like the rest of Kowloon, there were height restrictions. With the construction of Chek Lap Kok Airport came land reclamation, and height restrictions were relaxed. Nina Wang wanted to build the world's tallest building here. Unfortunately, Tsuen Wan is now along the Chek Lap Kok flight path so her plans had to be downsized. Nevertheless, Nina Tower is very noticeable in this district, but perhaps more monster skyscrapers might pop up in the future to give it some company.

There are a few big skyscraper residentials to the right of it already.
