No this was a while back I believe. They've already finished construction and flats are up for sale...

一號銀海基層申增建樓面遭拒
01月 17日 星期三 05:05AM

【明報專訊】信和奧運站「一號銀海」,基座兩層原已獲批建酒店,可建樓面逾4.47萬方呎,提供不多於119間房間,近期向城規會申請增加樓面增至6.49萬方呎,房間縮減至不多於70間,每房間面積近千呎。申請後天審理,但規劃署認為申請會將基座的零售樓面減少,會減少對該區居民的服務,不支持該申請。

With a huge podium and a moderate height, as well as all of the towers having identical height, this one looks a little stubby.

What Hong Kong towers lacked in stylistic elements they usually made up for with a slender, SLIGHTLY elegant form.

i actually like this development a lot. even though the tower is designed almost the same way most other developments in hk are (layout...) - you can tell that the architects have put in a lot of effort in refining the elevations and details.

the podium i think is particularly successful and i like the way they disguise the carpark with those 'slanted plates'... and if you look carefully, the granite tiles are also arranged with a random pattern to make it more interesting yet in a rather subtle manner.

one thing i'm curious is that are the tower seems to be also cladded with granite...! can anyone confirm that? (quite a costly way of doing it)

The front area of this building is badly wasted. It is a garden, but nobody uses it. The entrance is from the side, and people are lucky if the door is open. That is also the frontage to the harbour as well, but that is also fenced off.

The fire took place during construction, so the completed structure now doesn't show any signs of the fire damage. They're partially occupied now and I believe sales is still occurring.

I've started on a model for SimCity... here is a "module" unfortunately lately I was completely overwhelmed with work and really have no time/force to model for Simcity, but in about a month or so things should ease up and I hope to finish it as well as few other projects.
BTW hkskyline... do you by the chance have pictures of Harbor view I and II? Particularly of the base of the complex??

Looks nice to me. Hong Kong seems to like dense residential.

The empty site next to One SilverSea will be auctioned off next month, and possibly another giant skyscraper[s] will be on the way.
