I don't really like it, a little dissapointing, considering its HK's second tallest... It is huge though... And at least it's in the middle of nowhere

I'll have to decide when I see it in person.

Thanks! I saw that tower from the highway when I was in HK a few weeks ago and was wondering what it was. It was the tallest in the area and looked impressive - but it was tough to take a pic because of the smog.

The Nina Tower is Hong Kong's second tallest building in terms of the height of the roof of the top floor. This is a more accurate reflection of the actual size of the building. Since when is the ICC 484 m??? The ICC is less that 70 meters tall .

2 IFC 406.9 m
Nina Tower 318.8 m
Central Plaza 309 m
Band of China 305 m

Fair enough, if that is your assessment of measuring height, which is different from everyone else's. Perhaps you should have stated this beforehand, so kindly forumers such as I would not need to help you out.

I'm glad it's away from the main skyline. It's not enough to stand up there with the likes of HSBC, Bank of China, Center, 2IFC, and ICC.

Many figures that have been put forward (on this site) say 308m. But the official one I've heard is something like 260...

Lifestyle ditches Tsuen Wan Sogo plan after lease row
Prudence Ho
1 March 2006
Hong Kong Standard

Lifestyle International Holdings, which runs department stores in Hong Kong and the mainland, has scrapped plans to open its third Sogo store in Tsuen Wan after failing to agree lease terms.

Lifestyle started lease negotiations for opening its third Sogo store at Nina Tower with Chinachem Group last year. The company, which runs Sogo stores in Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui, said it will keep looking for a suitable location.

"When we open a new store, the lease period can't be too short and floorspace can't be too small,'' Lifestyle's managing director Thomas Lau said in a media briefing Tuesday.

Lifestyle reported Tuesday net profit of HK$539 million for 2005, up 30 percent from a year ago, and beat market expectations of HK$504 million. Sales rose 30 percent to HK$2.1 billion.

The earnings growth was mainly driven by its Sogo flagship store in Causeway Bay, which boosted sales 7.9 percent in 2005. The store posted 6 to 7 percent sales growth for the first two months of this year.

Lau said the newly opened Sogo store in Tsim Sha Tsui, which recorded three-month sales of HK$65 million for 2005, is expected to take two to three years to offer a more "meaningful contribution'' to the company.

Lifestyle said it expects a drive in growth to come from Jiuguang store in Shanghai, which opened in September 2004 and reported losses of HK$41 million last year. The company expects the Shanghai store to break even this year and become a significant earnings contributor after 2007.

Lau said Lifestyle plans to buy the remaining 35 percent stake in Jiuguang store and a 50 percent interest in the property housing it from its partner.

The company also hopes to find prime locations in cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin, to open its second Jiuguang store.

Lifestyle had HK$2.5 billion in cash at the end of December 2005, and Lau said the company could borrow HK$1 billion from the banks to give it enough funds to invest stores in Hong Kong and the mainland.

Lifestyle declared a final dividend of 14.4 HK cents per share, and a special dividend of 3.6 HK cents to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sogo in Hong Kong.
