It seems that after this building is completed, there will be no more 150+ m skyscrapers under construction in Hong Kong for the time being. Though that could change if the 280m Kwun Tong Town Centre Project starts construction.

Even if Hong Kong sees no new 150m+ buildings constructed in the near future, it will still (easily) have the best skyline in Asia until at least 2025. Hong Kong is established enough to where a "mega-tall" building means little in the grand scheme of things.

Actually there are a few construction projects taller than 150m going on now, but no one mention them. For example the one at Catchick Street, Kennedy Town, and the Pavilia Bay in Tsuen Wan.

A 200m+ landmark tower in Kai Tak was proposed. And there will be at least 30 more 180m+ residential buildings erected at LOHAS Park in Tseung Kwun O in the future.

How did you reach that conclusion? Impressive as Hk's skyline is , it's unlikely to match it with the merging skylines on height alone not to mention the iconic buildings U/C or proposed in the region. The best thing the skyline has going for it is the harbor setting.

The building's cladding. It's FINALLY continuing! Wonder when it clads the top as a final completion to the outside and when interior work gets done.

The architecture of Hong Kong, as a whole, is of a much higher level of quality than the "iconic buildings" that you mention. Not to mention the fact that Hong Kong is far more developed than the vast majority of the other cities in china and Asia (excluding Japan), and it is much more attractive overall.

Bottom line, Hong Kong has way more class than any of these "emerging" cities in china or any other country in Asia. Tall buildings do not bring class to a city.

A skyline can't be great with just iconic buildings and height. Otherwise, Dubai and Doha will win hands down.

There is a skyline, and then there is a lively city on which the skyline sits. That includes shorter buildings and a vibrant street scene. Established cities like HK have all of those ingredients.
