I, on the other hand, think it looks better than I thought it would.

Mind, the crown looks like something the cat dragged in...

This building has been under covers for too long. It looks passable, but very bland and not worth the long time it took to uncover it. Those two gaps in the middle don't look finished yet.........surprise me please!

it looks much better for being broken up into three sections but the glazing on the central sections looks strange as it is now. it would look better if it has the glass 'spine' like on the back but i guess they want to maximise the number of rooms with harbour views.

Hope there's a restaurant near the top so we can have a forum meet to experience this new vantage point.

A little too gross for my taste. But I guess it fits in well in Hong Kong.

Wow! It's finally uncovered! I expected a long glass strip along the middle of it.. but it doesn't look that this will be case. I think its decent... not spectacular in any way but it will add some nice density to the area.

I was in HK last month and IMO this building is very nice.
It looks especially good at night.
