Highcliff & Summit






WANCH,
I think the ARCH & the HARBOURSIDE are also lankmark residential buildings of HK. Whether they're ugly of not. They're special in shape and the ARCH did held the record price in HK. As I don't know how to post pics here. Do you have some to share here?

London's Pan Peninsula will be nice, the tallest residential building in Europe.
Toronto's got the CityPlace developments that are quite landmark-y.
Chicago's got that building (don't know what it's called), that's reminiscent of the Petronas towers, with the garage on the first few floors.

For Hong Kong, I prefer Highcliff and Summit, but someone requested a photo of the Harbourside and the Arch, so here it is :

True that the Arch and Harbourside are residential landmarks but I find Highcliff @ Summit more distinctive!

Actually HK has alot of residential landmarks. Here's another one in Repulse Bay, south of the island
