Great update SanMiguel, I haven't seen you post in quite some time!

That picture clearly shows the dominance of Nina Tower. It just soars over everything and those shorter towers around it are not even short buildings themselves....30, 40, 50 storeys. Very much considered "highrise" buildings in other cities.

Looking absolutely stunning.

I just realised this will be Hong Kong's second tallest building to roof on completion. Central Plaza, Bank of China and The Centre all have spires going higher but Nina Tower pips them all to roof, with only 2IFC being taller.

and the heli was getting closer...

.
btw, it looks like the Tsuen Wan Town Centre Project will have more than 3 towers...

.
between Nina and Yeung Uk Road Serviced Apartments is another new project, the Sino Residential Project, in b4 there was a sports ground...

.
the long flat bldg behind Nina is Tsuen Wan West Station of KCRC West Rail . . . . . . upper right, below the 3 towers is MTR Tsuen Wan Station of Tsuen Wan Line

.
