The signs on the street indicate it's a serviced apartment project. Perhaps the upper floors will be these serviced apartments?

Serviced apartments are exactly that.

Staff will change bedsheets and vacuum while you buy your own food to cook etc. Kind of like hotel rooms.

This is looking more and more like something that might have been built in the 1970s.

Hope the crown is well lit. This along with the Union Square should make Kowloon a more prominent part in HK's light shows

I like this tower, it's not glassy, but at least it's not a commie block. Hopefully it's not built with crappy materials.

I hate the kinds of stuff that stains after it rains.
