that green colour gives it a moss-effect. it looks a little like a forest there. Why they did not choose the colour blue or red?

I cant decide wether I love this one or not until they take out all those green scarfoldings.

Are you talking about the scaffolding? Most Hong Kong buildings are constructed and restored with that green veil, which will be taken off eventually once the work is complete.

I agree. It's hard to tell whether or not you like the building while it's still wrapped up in it's package.

By the way, when is this building supposed to be finished and how tall? A previous post mentioned 275meters(900ft) but I'm not sure. I think the building will look great once the scaffolding and mesh are taken off even though I'm not too sure what the final color is supposed to be.
