I thought the top would have a different cladding than the one showed in the rendering.

It is 320m. One would hope that it looks massive.

I guess, but height is not the reason, there are many buildings over 400m that don't appear as massive.... (massive in good way, I didn't mean it in a negative way)

Tsuen Wan district is mostly residential and industrial buildings and until recently, there were no supertalls. Most buildings were 20-40F with residential-standard floor heights. Therefore there weren't really any buildings over 150m in the area. Now that there are 50~70 floor buildings being constructed in Tsuen Wan, it is getting a less boring skyline. Then we have Nina/Teddy tower as the focal point.

I'm enjoying the redevelopment of Tsuen Wan.

The facade is really interesting. I can't wait to see how they build the top to match the whole building.
I wonder who the architect is...

I live in Tusen Wan, I really hoping all the redevelopment in Tusen Wan, but most the taller building was built near the harbor, which block all the faslh air come form the west side the the Tusen Wan City...which is really a mess !!
Anyway....I still like the changes around Nina tower
