There are a lot of photos featuring HSBC Hong Kong online. Why not take advantage of them and showcase the different perspectives on this building rather than repeat?



Photography is actually not allowed inside the building, so a shot like this is fairly rare to come by outside the architecture books :











Guardians of the bank :









That didn't take so long.

Here's an old photo of a plaza in Metro Manila with the HSBC building visible behind the church.

Definitely not, the HSBC building in Hong Kong is no where near 300m, it's around 180m, if I remember correctly.

AFAIK, the tallest HSBC is the Manhattan one, which is around 210m, there are a few others that are 200m around the world (Shanghai and London, maybe more)
