Superb pics as always fatshe.

Not just by its height alone, but with such wonderful cladding it is really going to stand out in a rather mediocre area.

It's not a mediocre area. Tai Koo Shing is an expensive residential district developed in the 1980s. The atmosphere is a lot less crowded than the other nearby residential districts.

They have a UNY there (I think it was at Tai Koo Shing)

Yes, they date from the 80s, so they're about 20 years old. But they're well maintained, so the facilities still look very good.

It's now closed. They're renovating the space for a UNY-branded department store bearing a different name.

UNY is closed?? It's a shock.
Although I don't shop in UNY very much, but I like walking around UNY more than other Japanese department store.
