in the comming years there will be many buildings that will fill up the skyline leaving this one not quite as noticeable and dominating...

I love that contrast of old bulildings in the foreground and new glassy skyscrapers in the back, sort of feels like looking forward in time. (Another great one is Langham with old buildings in Mong Kok/YMT)

^ well Renato that has been one amazing piece of spamming the forums. I doubt it will be allowed though.

Some 'veils' on London skyscrapers were blown off the other day after strong winds, does HK ever get strong enough winds to blow the wrapping off this one so we could take a better look at it?

When I was in HK last summer this was the most dominant skyscraper on HK island, it should have been overtaken by now though?

The bamboo scaffolding and netting are quite durable, so even during typhoon season they tend to stay fixed. There are some instances of scaffolding collapses but those are fairly rare even in typhoon 8 winds (that's when the whole city shuts down and workers are allowed to go home).

HK typically experiences a few typhoons every year.

The winds in London the other day were quite abnormal with gust speeds up to some 100mph... and I don't suppose such speeds were designed for.
