Cool building, never heard about it until now that it's almost done...

Looks like shorter buildings only take a few months!

It's too massive, like MegaBox. It doesn't look good. Thankfully it's short.

Instead of West Kowloon, Kwun Tong & Kowloon Bay will become Hong Kong's Canary Wharf....

Oh so that's what this building is - had been wondering what that monstrosity visible across the harbour when taking the ferry/bus was...

It's actually a pretty cool building, but wouldn't fit in the main skyline - its fine where it is. Probably Hong Kong's best arch/holed building.

It's a shame that the view of the hole is mostly blocked from that perspective.... makes you wonder why they even decided to do this design.

Depends which vantage point you look at it from though...there's plenty where you can see the hole.

What happens to the old and ugly building on the left of 223, covered in green mesh in recent pics? Renovation?

Probably renovation. Don't think they're tearing down this building. Anyone else with a different view?
