Those residential blocks are extremely average in Hong Kong, and are probably mostly occupied by the relitivly lower class. Most of Hong Kong's population lives in blocks like that totaling to about +3000 buildings, however most are 'nicer' than that, the most luxious being something like Union Square, or Harborside.

Yes this towers are not the best, but on the other side of the water you see already better ones. They look similar, that makes them cheaper. (not everybody can pay for the best...) But most of those complexes contructed this days are very luxurious!

the number and height of hk residential complexes are definitely staggering...

the top of the building looks sorta awkward, but maybe the round top will reach a bit more to the other side of the building.

my god, I've seen that aerial many times before but it is still impressive. I would like to see the same picture after Nina is finished! The constructionsite for a tunnel you can see is already a park/green area.

This has got to hold some record for tallest suburban tower or something. Tallest furthest away from city center or downtown.
Great tower! Its good that HK is expanding beyond the island with commercial skyscrapers (supertalls, average joe skyscrapers inhabit all of Hong Kong) with this and Union Square as well as Langham Place.
