Think Nina Tower is going to be my new favourite in HK! Can't wait to go back again this year. I remember seeing it when I was on my way to the airport. One fine building! Hope that Tsuen Wan gets a proper skyline soon! I think It will be a real nice skyline, especially with the mountain backdrop.

People travelling on the airport express might mistake Tsuen Wan for the main HK skyline but get an even better surprise when they get towards Union Square and then HK Island....

Very cool project. I like the name, it's ironic because it's such an imposing tower.

Do you mean it's ironic coz it's named Nina? Coz only the shorter building is called Nina.. the taller one is actually called Teddy in honor of her still missing husband.

Tsing Ma bridge looks smaller than usual there....maybe it's because The Nina totally dwarfed it...

Please post a panorama that includes the Nina!

It would be really cool to see a nice (and recent) panaorama which includes the Nina tower. How about a time lapse series of the updates too? Anyone game to make this as the first post of the second edition of this thread?

Awesome tower, I like the sky-bridge thing! Are there going to be glass floors on the bridge, because that would be freaky!

Nina Tower with a better view (mountain background) than 2IFC (HK island). Do you agreed ?
