Could you tell me the name of that avenue in the old pic? I would like to know that so that I could go check on google maps where that is exactly and get an even better idea of the location on the "now" pic.

Pingan looks really worse then I expected. The original top is hard to see form anywhere. When you are near, you canīt see it, when you are far, you canīt see it...

once Hong Kong and Mainland reunite that area will boom like you could not imagine. I mean just think what this area in Shenzhen will look like in the 40s, damn, future city next to prime empty plots.

edit: don't let this comment lead to a political debate

Gorgeous tower. This whole area has huge potential for future development. Would love to see the gap between Hong Kong and Shenzhen fill out one day.

Don't worry... they will sooner demolish the lowrise areas than fill those "empty plots" on the Hong Kong side.
