Correct!
They (Teddy and Nina)started their business in that area about 40 years ago,
and Teddy was kidnaped and still missing.

The skybride between both tower symbolise Teddy and Nina hand in hand forever...god ,IT IS SO BLOODY ROMANTIC!

gosh... so romantic... Teddy and Nina Kung have been known to be very affectionate and romantic with each other.. when Teddy was still around they always go in public in matching outfits and everything... they are truly a model of marriage and love...

Damn those bastards that kidnapped and killed Teddy...

The render looks like an erect *****. The actual building, on the other hand, looks very classy and high quality. There's been no "cheaping out" on this building at all. Another gem. Just one of HK's signature towers in Toronto would do wonders for the skyline.

HK is crazy... so many 300m + buildings and even more buildings going up. There's over 400 forty storey + buildings (over 400ft) in the New Territories alone... not even counting HK island OR Kowloon. That really says something. It just boggles the mind.

I've been following this tower for awhile off and on and I do have to say that although the renderings left me a little skeptical, the (almost) finished product is quite grand! Maybe it's just the nice blue glass but the tower carries a very strong sense of verticality. It'll be sweet to see when it's all done.
