[Pic]The Center, Hong Kong

The Center/Centre (346m/73f/1998) is currently the 4th tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong. Here's some of my collection from last summer:


From the Peak and Kowloon in the background




Entrance. The tower is huge.


I notice more ppl are fond of the lighting scheme of the tower. Here's a sequence of the special lighting showing in the Symphony of Light.


The tower has easy access to the Sheung Wan MTR.

I was quite surprised that the colours go from left to right and vice versa during the Symphony of Lights. They only went up and down before.

One of my favorite HK skyscrapers. Though I find the interior impressing!

Oh, wow. I had never really paid too much attention to this tower, but it is quite nice. The lighting scheme is damn cool, and the ground level detailing is a class act.

Thanks! Amazing pics and great avatar!

The Centre is one of my favourites in HKG and is definitely very underrated considering how tall and elegant the shape is. It's also one of the most beautifully lit towers at night.
