On the right track, it will become the tallest building of Kowloon and the 6th 300+ building by July and December respectively.

It`s now higher than its neighbours, isn`t it?
Can`t wait to see the completed buildung - I still can`t believe it takes them 3 more years.

Former Kai Tak Airport. Its buildings and other facilities have been mostly dismantled.

Also, West Kowloon reclamation area is still empty except for Union Square.

It's the Kowloon Peak (602m, Fei Ngo Shan), not the Lion Rock (495m).
The 2 tall buildings in the foreground are the "Choi Fai Estate" near Choi Hung. In the background, the cluster of tall buildings form the "Richland Gardens" near Kai Tak.

Draw a straight line between these 2 landmarks. You can see the shot was not taken from the Lion Rock.
