is not about the communist. If you don't now, a commie building is just a tall, but very boring apartment building, like these ones:



P.S.
If I know well, commie building is not even named after communism (even though comunist countries use to build them a lot, but you can find them in Paris, New York, Hong Kong not just in Moscow, Shanghai or Pyongyang ) but after "commune apartment building" or something like that.

I think he's just making a joking reference to the cluster of anonymous apartment blocks in Quarry Bay...

Yup those are the two!! Thx!



I was wondering if someone could make this into a wallpaper? 1280X800 is my screen size. Thanks in advance!

I'd imagine the Symphony of Lights isn't exactly cheap but they manage it, so I'm sure HK could stretch to this..

Hong Kong spends a lot of electricity for illumination. I think that light bridge won't have a major effect on the over all cost.

Just have look at this photo:

I wonder if there will really be a huge Ritz Carlton logo on the top section. That would be a bit vulgar...

Just have look at this photo:

Well if it just lasts for the eight minutes in the show it wouldn't even scratch the cost. However if its for the whole night, well,

But still, can't be sure that I'm right since I am not an expert in lights and electricity =]

I told you they aren't going to do that. It's my idea and Aboveday photoshopped it :P

It's a good thing that light across the harbor is just a joke, who the hell wants a horizontal light like that anyways? Not my idea of a gateway.

Besides, if they really approve another supertall for the high-speed rail terminal nearby ICC it wouldn't even matter anymore.

The light is a joke, but a laser is proposed instead
