It's actually behind it. I bet at most angles you can't even see it.

iSquare seems to be quite a wide building, so the floorplates should be big, which makes this a huge mall if it goes up so many stories. When Megabox opened in Kowloon Bay, I thought at 10+ storey mall would be huge, but then the floorplates are small so it just sprawls upwards instead of across.

If this building has 30 floors, then this is liable to become the world's tallest shopping centre.

In documents from the Planning Department it is 134.4mPD tall. The ground level of site is around 4.6mPD, which shall make the project around 130m tall.

大院線靠新技術搶攻市場
27 December 2008
明報

【明報專訊】當傳統戲院要靠減價吸客之際,大院線近年卻靠新技術及概念搶攻市場。UA院線繼在九龍灣MegaBox開設首間IMAX影院後,又宣布再斥資5000萬元,在尖沙嘴港鐵站上蓋新商場ISQUARE、即凱悅酒店舊址的 「黃金位置」,再開設多一間IMAX影院。除了IMAX 3D影院,戲院內還有兩間貴賓影院,吸納高消費客,預計明年底隨新商場落成開幕。

3D成風尚健康食店招徠

另一間近年積極拓展市場的洲立院線(MCL),除了去年在九龍站開設全港首間配置「Infrasonic系統」的「超體感」影院The Grand Cinema,近期亦翻新擴建將軍澳戲院,影院亦設有3D數碼投影機,在平安夜開始試業;MCL德福亦增設了MCL Cafe & Deli餐廳,以有機食品和健康餐招徠,如有機蔬菜配糙米飯或意粉等,一個早餐約20元,晚餐則要80元。

除了院線以新技術為賣點,面對經濟下滑,今年院線並無趁旺季加價,大部分早場只收35至40元,正場普遍55至65元,不少院線更提供信用卡九折優惠,若是UA MegaBox,早場只要30元,正場亦是45元,比在深圳一般戲院,普遍70元人民幣更便宜。

Nice pictures. Is that from the famous roof-top toilet at the Peninsula? I thought those faced the harbour side?

The view from the Kowloon side is so serene and empty, yet from the HK Island side, it's buried behind a row of buildings!

A 30-storey shopping-centre is something I've never imagined.

But HongKong is exactly the city (or maybe Dubai or Tokyo) where such concept could be built.
