I didn't know the building is that slim.
We are getting more and more of this long but slim building around the city.

The name of that building made sense for a while.

Fantastic !
I hope the lighting scheme will be better than that of the Victoria towers.

Really don't like this building. It looks alright in some pics though - might look nice at night too with it all lit up.

During the day however...urgh.

Looks massive, that's probably the only redeeming feature though.

It's actually quite a forgettable building. Architecturally boring, with bland facade. Typical of something that might of been built in the '80's. With the influx of great supertalls in HK in recent years(Langham, Nina Tower, Union Square, One Island East, etc.), this one turned out for the worse. HK seemed to have taken a step backwards with this skyscraper.

It looks really dominating in aerial shots of Kowloon - something you don't experience at street level at all in my opinion.
