with the addition of this building, does it mean that the CBD has been extended to West Kowloon? That would probably mean more tall buildings will be added there

No wonder they need more land, to make more impressive towers.

I wonder if the Hong Kong stock market is doing better than the Dow Jones. Probably.

What is the term for the architectural style of all those apartment towers they have all over Hong Kong? I mean like the condo highrises.

They're typically referred to as "Commie Blocks" (referring to the way communist countries tended to stuff all their population in shabby highrises like the ones depicted in Hong Kong). I can't tell you the official architectural term though.
