i think the designeers need to go back to the drawing board and approve the 80 meter bump up....this deserves alot more height that its getting...and at an alarming rate at that...beautiful glass panels...curvaous lines front to back...i know they wont add 80 meters but if they could i wish they would.

Was walking along the TST promenade yesterday, and I remember earlier in the thread we had a debate about whether you'd be able to see it from TST.

Can I just say that I was right and you can see it from TST East Promenade - it's only 54floors right now but it towers over EVERYTHING on Island East by a good 10 floors or so.

It's not so easy to spot even at the waterfront promenade in front of Harbourfront Landmark, which is right across from North Point.

Huh?

I could see it well and clear from TST - I took the bridge from Tsim Sha Tsui Centre to the promenade (near the Shangri-La) - and there it was standing tall above everything - still got a few more floors to go too.

The core isn't too noticeable as it just peers over the tops of neighboring buildings.

When did you last go there? And did you try from TST East? Perhaps a building in front blocks off the view from Hung Hom.

It sticks out like a sore thumb...

See the picture on the previous page I took in Hung Hom, which is even closer to Quarry Bay than TST East. The core is above the neighboring buildings - no glass yet.

That's pretty sticking out like a sore thumb to me, especially when you consider how tall it will be when it's done...

When it's done it'll be big, but it's not done yet and it hides fairly well in the skyline. I'm comparing it to the Union Square standard since they're both supertalls.

Really sleek tower, love the cladding. However, I would of prefered if it were more central in the HK island skyline (Wanchai, Admiralty, Central, etc.)
