I love this tower. And it has a very nice impact on the skyline, it really sticks out nicely.

Hell yeah. That's a great view, and it won't be in danger of being covered up by any new buildings with the park being right across the street.

Even though Hong Kong practically invented pencil towers, there's no way this beauty can be replicated in HK. Very nicely done.
