But then Central Plaza is blocked in this case.
Firstly does TST Promenade stand for Tsim Sha Tsui Pomenade in Kowloon?

...and secondly is that The Center @ 99 Queen's Road Central to the right of 2 International Finance Centre?

I always get night views of The Center & Central Plaza due to their neon lit crowns & floodlit spires.

Speaking of, Central Plaza is poking over the top of the Kowloon skyline just to the left of The International Commerce Center in this evening render of 2010 below, courtesy of Aboveday:

It IS the Highcliff, if you really mean that patch of light at mid-air on the left.

No it's definitely Highcliff. You can see The Summit right in front of it, slightly shorter, and slightly to the right.

It's the Highcliff....

Mongkok isn't even visible in this rendering, it's too far back on Kowloon peninsula.

Anyway the main point is that the rendering shows just how great the skyline will look like.
Nice job!!!

Yes, TST stands for Tsim Sha Tsui. And that is indeed the Center which is brightly and colourfully lit. You live in HK?

ThirskUK - That is not Langham Place - Langham Place is in Mong Kok, which would be further 'behind' and to the left from the point of view, and hence not visible.

The building you see is the Highcliff/Summit complex, which are perched atop mountains.



The building to the left in the above picture, as viewed from Hong Kong Island side, is High Cliff, which is the taller of the two and is the lit up 'dome' you see in the rendering. The shorter building is the Summit.

Speaking of which, I'd love a penthouse in either of those , although I hear the going rate (for rent) is HK$ 300 000+/month.
