It topped out ages ago - they haven't completed the crown for **** knows what reason initially, then there was the problem with the owner of the tower, Nina Wang, passing away.

Chinachem is quite notorious for going slow on some of its real estate developments. l'Hotel Repulse Bay has been sitting empty for a few years now and some of its residential projects are still being sold years after launching.

Nina Tower was on hold for a few years because of the financial issue with the corporation and other Wang's family problems in the 90s. It was half way up and didn't go any further for quite a while. Everything was solved out in the last few years and it has been going up again.

Nina Wang passed away had little influence on the construction phase as it only happened a few months ago wheen the building were pretty much done.

Saw this picture in the ICC thread. Are we finally getting a glimpse of the crown?

TD makes good use of the VMS instead of turning them off.
