Are you referring to those floating 'crystals'?

I think I saw them at the latest model exhibition at URA Centre last week. There is a large model of the building

The site had been a field for the past few decades.

Yea....thats what i meant but i think its hard to believe they are going to connect it to the 'land' with underwater tunnel.

It was in the specifications but after they won i remember Sands have to work with the government to fine tune the design...not sure if they have remove the tunnels and just replace them with a simple bridge coz its cheaper.Plus the water is murky...no point having a glass underwater tunnel and i think this 'creative' idea is to for the wow factor during the intense bidding warfare

Anyway...hope it can be realised tho

Yeap. even if there are trees there, they are planted by humans as that land is a reclaimed land. Plus there is a rooftop garden.

It better be, considering their optimism to open in 2009. However I'm still convinced that kurakura will see my 10 bucks only in his dreams.
