I'm sorry I'm just too distracted by the 3 storey crotch to care about demolitions anymore.

Oh my.... That CK ad is just..... it may be a little more eye pleasing if there is a girl version of it rather than just two guys on both sides.

The China Construction Bank of Hong Kong may occupy the new office building replacing the former Ritz Carlton Hotel.

Towering underwear ad draws complaints in Hong Kong: report
4 hours ago

HONG KONG (AFP) — A skyscraper-sized underwear ad featuring Blood Diamond star Djimon Hounsou has been cleared by Hong Kong regulators of indecency, a report said Friday.

The towering black-and-white photograph of the actor sporting just a pair of Calvin Klein briefs drew three complaints of indecency to the Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority, a report in the South China Morning Post said.

But the watchdog cleared the ad -- the largest of its size in the region -- of the claims, the report said. The regulator was not immediately available for comment.

One reader described the advert as visual pollution, since it was located next to several public parks and historical sites.

The ad is on the side of the old Ritz-Carlton hotel, in the Central district of Hong Kong island. It was to be displayed until April 15, soon before the hotel is pulled down.

^This is OOT, but there is a group of low rise, possibly government buildings in the middle that can be developed into hi-rise office??

argh dont understand why there're so many voices against the advert.
at the end of the day its just a guy posing in an underwear advert, not that its hinting sex or other so called 'indecent' acts.
jose's right - if the model's replaced by david beckham probably people wont complain as much!
