Great update, fatsche.
Actually, I doesn't look that tall even though it seems to be topped out by now.

I'm very curious about how the facade will look in real life.

The whole time I was in HoKo I keep thinking how much this building resembles a traditional Chinese ancestor tablet...

there's one image way back in the thread which shows a close-up of the main cladding. it's got quite a bit of white in it with thin horizontal bands of glass. i'm really interested to see what it'll be like when the full effect is unleashed.

I am also very eager to see the cladding on this building. The teaser photo earlier in the thread was promising. This is a building that really looks as tall as the initial estimate (275m). It is really quite enormous and will be a major fixture in the the Kowloon skyline.
