This building is actually really nice, even during day time. I'm not a fan of its lighting scheme though, although, considering that it's so far from the central skyline, it's not too bad. If it were in the central skyline, it would/should have a better lighting scheme.

High class tower, and the ilumination rocks. Cool but not excesive.

Ah yes, fair point. Forgot about that.

I like the lighting scheme in the picture I posted.

It will happen gradually, when the govt. compensates residents for relocation in that area. Residents can be very vocal about preservation of their existing living environments, so urban renewal in Hong Kong sometimes can take a long time depending on the projects' circumstances.

There seems to be an oversupply of new housing around Nina Tower though, and Tsuen Wan isn't the prettiest district to ask for high prices, which should keep redevelopment efforts in check.

I'm curious as to how the office supply looks around Tsuen Wan, afaik (I might be wrong) Nina Tower is supposed to be an office tower?

What was nina's vision when she had the tower built?

Nina Tower project (the 2 towers) is a mix of office and hotel. I think the hotel should fare well if it caters for more budget-minded travellers as it is poorly connected to the MTR yet not too far from the airport.

Tsuen Wan is not an emerging office district like West Kowloon or Kowloon Bay. Most of the redevelopments these days are residential.

15 minute walk to Tsuen Wan station. 8 minutes to Tsuen Wan West (West Rail).
