I don't think this is a very well-executed tower. The renderings looked so promising.... they showed massive bulk but slender and smooth lines.

What we have is very angular by comparison. I think 2IFC is better.

I do agree that right now it looks kinda bulky, but remember it still has about 10-15 floors to go after the core!

10-15 floors of hotel, plus a roof and glass structure that go beyond that to reach the final height.

All things considered, the restaurants and bars on offer aren't exactly the most exclusive/best (in Elements itself).

Feels like it stops growing upward. When are they gonna start on the hotel section?

Maybe it's because Hong Kong belonged to Britain until 1997.
