Wow. The cladding really raced up this tower. From start to finish this has been a very quick transformation.

A pity it's not closer to the ICC, these two would get along nicely...

Pelican [is it pelican?] view - 270 degrees:

OIE to the left, IFC to the far right, and [unfortunately] ICC is just off the picture to the far, far right.



Full sized image, and more, at: http://www.culture.com.hk/gallery/vi...avaRoad_070928

Beautiful picture!

HK is just massive. Dizzying. Where do you think this shot is from? Causeway Bay, perhaps? Which direction would Highcliff and Summit be?

Looks like it was taken in Quarry Bay

You can see North Point's AIA building on the right hand side in the distance. Highcliff and Summit should be on the right hand side far in the distance. Is this picture really distorted? The distances don't seem right...

edit: maybe it is.... just a view I've never seen before.

It's taken from North Point, not too far from the bus terminus and ferry pier. There's a property development there called "Island Lodge", that should start construction soon enough - and this company/bloke goes around doing lots of promotional images for property developments.

Highcliff and Summit would be out of view, much further inland from the AIA tower.

The image does seem a bit distorted [lens?], because neither IFC nor OIE are as far away as they seem in the pic.
