Unlike similar attempts elsewhere in Kowloon, this one aims to get the headquarters and key functions to move across the harbour, and not so much the back office / support functions being lured to the cheaper parts of East Kowloon.

We have a thread on the new business district in the General Developments section : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=884850
That's quite a smart move, with the HK island fully packed there's no space for new office so it's good that they arrange a new location for future skyscrapers to rise

^? I think you mean they should build taller now. My English isn't that great either sometimes but this hits everything. That's a Dutch saying of course.
