7WT: HK is building a handful of new satellite biz/res centers around the city, and Nina is the anchor to one of them--

in another year or so several massive constructions (including skyscraper hotels-- it is HK afterall) will be immediately adjacent and connected to her, providing convenient access to both Central and the airport/Disneyland--

no more supertalls around Nina however...

yeah, i know that the hk surroundings are made up of satellite communities with its own centers. however, nina's tower's so good, it deserves better than being isolated outside of the main hk downtown, and as a result made less prominent than other downtown hk skyscrapers (i mean, not as many visitors of hk would go to the place it's located as the main hk downtown).

Nina Wang wanted to build the world's tallest building there, but the planning department forced her to scale down her ambitions because it's right along the flight path to Chek Lap Kok. Interestingly, even if Kai Tak was still open, it would still be along that flight path as well.

Nevertheless, it's quite amazing to see this huge building in the middle of a lowrise district.

it does look a little taller than 319 ... or maybe because beside it no towers are really that tall ...
this tower would fit right in on the island side i think ...
great tower ... hope it regenerates the once industrial area

Could someone get a map and show where the location of this tower is with respect to the whole Hong Kong area. That would be great.
