Anyone noticed the green scaffolding on the sides of the building lately? Is it being demolished?

總部無角唔關風水
22 May 2009

【東方日報專訊】早前有報道指長實拒絕荷蘭領事館於中環長江中心舉辦「木屐」展,因「風水」問題,「屐」、「屐」聲不是很吉利,「李超人」(李嘉誠)昨高聲呼冤,說只是有關同事「後生、無經驗」,隨便說與「風水」有關。他又說,集團有二十多萬名同事,即使一個城市的市長,也不可能知道每件事,他事前不知道,直至看到報紙才知道有這件事。

他又強調,自己不是特別注重風水,同時不懂得研究風水,還主動透露興建長江中心時,原本大樓是四方形設計,後來自己決定將所有尖角削平,原因是他相信附近物業業主及租客都會歡喜,絕對不關「風水」事。

讚任總做得幾好

對於金管局總裁任志剛將於十月離任,「李超人」說與任志剛是好朋友,但不欲評論太多,總之他做得幾好。

對於屋宇署批出和記大廈建築圖則,容許興建47層高商廈,有記者追問李澤鉅是否想將和記大廈重建,但他說這五分鐘沒有這個計劃,入則只是想知道現時和記大廈最多可以興建多少層。

早前有證券報告指出,長實旗下半山壹號一期只有兩、三成買家成功上會,但李澤鉅就說這份報告的資料肯定是錯,因即供買家已經差不多一半。

From the article, it is not even getting a height allowance, but sounds more like just want to find out what is the height allowance. Li said "there is no plan (for redevelopment) in (that) 5 minutes" during the press con.

So if Hutchison has submitted the plans to the BD and approved, this project may just be halted because of the economy. I am pretty sure this will come true soon

If the Hutchison House gets redeveloped, should the Bank of America Tower get redeveloped as well?

Not in relationship with the Hutchison House.
