I was looking at the sequences, and it got me wondering, is Hong Kong going back and destroying older buildings for these newer ones?

The building that got demolished was not a historic monument at all. It was actually quite ugly.

Wonder if the two old buildings beside it will also go and pencil towers will replace them?

WoW

I like the classy look of it!
I think this is the first new office building with no full glass facade for quite a long time now.
