Hell yeah! Another major boost to the Hong Kong skyline. I would love to see both sides of that bay filled with way more skyscrapers and supertalls one day.

I like this shot because it truly shows how dense Hong Kong Island is. Usually shots are centered on Central Plaza or Bank of China/2 IFC and you don't get to see all this density.

It seems there will be set-back, which is quite rare in recent years. It seems the windows will be worse than ICC, IFC or even Nina Tower.

Yeah, it looks ugly to me so far!

I am so disappointed with ugly buildings in Hong Kong over the last few years. Singapore or Sydney always give you "wow" factor with each of their new building, but Hong Kong has been very disappointing with all these ugly pencil boring blocks over the years!

Hong Kong is always conservative with architecture, partially because of the culture and partially because the land is so expensive that developers have little incentive aside from maximising the plot ratio and usable space.

Looking forward to the HSR terminus, a welcome exception.

Another from yesterday afternoon:

Thanks for the picture update mate! Please keep more coming!!!

Yeah, incentive and profit potential are the 2 main factors I guess. Singapore and Sydney's land price is not cheap either, like the case in any other major city. If you look at every building being put up in Singapore over the last 20 years, it appeared to me that they were also chosen very carefully before they get approved for construction. Very impressive. The most disappointing building in TST is K11, totally ugly tall outstanding block in that area. You would not see anything like this in Singapore or Sydney.

As a HKer, I just wish there are more wow factors in Hong Kong.

Yes, HSR terminal's rendering looks great!
