AboveDay can help you dream there...

I say it'd have been a perfect fit in Admiralty, since Admiralty doesn't have any/many 250m+ buildings, giving Wan Chai, Admiralty, Central, Sheung Wan an even-ish spread.

Good height. My birth minute was 3:08.

When is it set to top out?

^ Hmm looks like we're going to get the textured cladding after all.

I wonder why they have only started it after the first 16 floors? It willl look a real mess if it's smooth at the bottom and then textured above!

I'm a pretty poor photographer, but what the heck - maybe someone who has a good panorama stitcher can stitch these up:
