Interesting name...I must say the Union Square project's Chinese names have been quite flattering, much more so than the English ones. Always something about the sky and heavens.

And I didn't know it was going to be serviced apartments. I was always under the impression that it would be office space and hotel.

ive found out they arent including any floors with 4 in them. last count it was lev58 but 6 levels are missing thus 52 actual above grd.
levels 4,14,24,34,44,54 have been omitted.when it gets to 63, the next rise it will be 65.
btw current height at lev58 or 52 above grd = 240m.
cheers big ears

Yep, the missing 4 makes sense. It's the same setup with the 62 (actual) storied Cheung Kong Centre at Queen's Road Central.

I really love this building it's filling out very nicely. In my book for skylines it's Chicago, Hong Kong, and New York.
