The Arch is more expensive than the Harbourside, yet it is the Harbourside that has the better views.

Here is a pic I took when I was in Hong Kong last weekend. Nowhere near as good as the pic above but I think its worth a post.

Is that just an illusion or do the edges from your angle look very rounded?

Ribarca's picture reminds me. Right above the Bank of China, perpendicular to it in fact, there is a very long, thin object on the mountain. What the hell is it?

Right of that, there are cranes working on something - what?

From the last photo of Ribarca, seems that the cladding has reached the top floor of ICC tower, and probably as we speek they working in the interior now...

Are you referring to me?

Those aren't the cranes I meant - look directly above 2-IFC.
