Industrial high-rises

Hong Kong's skyscrapers are not just residential or commercial but industrial as well. There are several high-rise scrapers in the city primarily for clean industries. Most of them are in Wong Chuk Hang, Chai Wan, Kwai Chung and Tai Po. Are there other cities that have industrial scrapers such as these?

Some from HK

But Yokohama does not have 20 stories complexes like the ones in HK. Singapore might have them though.

Anyway, land is so scarce in HK that even industrial areas are vertical. But most of the newer buildings are for clean industries such as textile, electronics or manufacturing.

I've heard Monaco has industrial skyscrapers as well, but on the outside they're hardly noticeable.
