wow, everything looks so slim from that angle. Is the curvy one 1 Peking Road?

And what's the slightly taller one to the right of it?

Curvy is Peking Road.

The slightly taller one is east of The Peninsula, forgot the name now though - but it's pretty strange because it has a weird name and I remember there was a running joke about it vs Hanoi.. It's a brownish building, you'll probably have seen it in the other photos. It's not actually taller (I think?), just closer to the photographer. It's a residential block with sweeping views.

Edit: Remembered! It's called the Pinnacle.

Ok took a moment to look for a picture from my archive. This was taken August 2007

So the Pinnacle is the commie block style ones to the right of 1 Peking? But there's a brown one further to the right (behind the NWC)

Pinncacle is the brown and white one almost directly below Hanoi Road. The 3 towers just to the right of 1 Peking are Victoria Towers bordering Kowloon Park.

Yes, they do. Emporis/Skyscraperpage also have got "Hotel Panorama" wrong - they've labelled (for some reason) the Hanoi as "Hotel Panorama", when in fact it's the semi-glassy triangular building just right of the Pinnacle/Hanoi in that picture.

Have a look: http://www.hotelpanorama.com.hk/en/index.html

I wonder if there is another Pinnacle elsewhere in town? From first glance it looks like Harbour Place in Hung Hom, but without more pictures it's hard for me to tell.

Isn't Harbour Place - that's more distinctly green/brown(red). That isn't the Victoria Towers either.
