Amazing pics Sher, I've put a few of them in the ROT thread for this building, along with a link it this thread. Hope you don't mind.

Rate this building here. It deserves to be a lot higher than 28th out of the top 100 IMO.

I don't really feel the building's design. But it does have a futuristic look.

I am sure that Langham Place is one of the best World Class Integrated Developments, but shamefully, it is too big for Mongkok.

The scale is quite large, but the problem with this redevelopment is with interaction. Mongkok is a very interactive place at street level. Langham Place broke that by moving everything indoors, putting up faceless walls against the street instead.

Skybean, I like your photos. Especially the first one, the warm/earth colors of the old buildings contrasts nicely with the cool Langham.

Stayed here in 2008. Langham Place was a beautiful hotel, an oasis in the heart of the maddest part of HK. It was a great experience leaving the opulence of the hotel, walking out of those 'glass walls' and into a labyrinth of narrow streets, markets and hoardes of people. It felt like the best of both worlds; the real HK outside but with an indulgent retreat. Love that place!
