I guess we can officially say now it looks very avarage/bad. IMO not a really good addition to Kowloon's skyline. Hope it will visually disappear as new scraper will keep rising in that area.

I saw this under construction when I was in Hong Kong last August. I really like how it was wrapped, and has become undressed only after it's completed. It's the mystery of seeing a skyscraper present get taller and taller, and then the wraps come off, like a new statue or monument
