Can't find the official link for the renovation project - hkskyline can probably help you with that.

Coth - you can see the 'proposals' in the 'epic' picture ~ the boarding that says "single phase completion March 2008".

Those pink and white buildings on the left of the EPIC picture, those are the ones they're trying to buy and tear down

I haven't heard about this project since early 2007. Its construction may have been so fast that it is unknown when construction started.

It's T/O but still U/C inside, with expected completion next month. However, I doubt the interiors will be fully complete by then. They might open the building to tenants but I think there will still be some time to furnish the structure.
