Wonder if there will be glass on the roof...

Hope it is only lit with white light at night. Definitely a great addition to the skyline. Tsuen Wan should get more tall towers. Imagine flying by it on the way to HKIA =P

BTW, Kung Hei Fat Choi everyone. Man See Yu Yee, Long Ma Jing Sun, Sun Tai Geen Hong!!!!

My thoughts exactly. This tower would have looked smashing in Toronto. You can tell that this tower hasn't been cheaped out at all. Add to it, the colour is fantastic!

the cladding is not completed yet, and protection tapes are everywhere. Those holes will be filled with strip of metal installed in angles, just like what they already done for some of the holes. I believe the color won't be blue after the tapes are taken off.
btw, these holes (opening) are refuge floors (in case of fire), as well as massive HVAC system, electrical generators etc.

Another giant for HK. Well, I think cladding could be better, but still looks good, and I think this type of cladding fits perfect to HK!
