Wow, what a smart idea to put a large electronic display instead of a fixed sign up there. I bet it looks great at night. I love advertising as long as it stays away from my TV.

No way, it will be beautiful. Plus it's advertising, it should stand out well.

I think the sign is ugly and messed up the building. I'd rather have the normal sign up there!

And it is broken is some places.

I bet they'll fix any problems with the sign.

Haha.. that's pretty crazy. I agree with those who say a fixed sign may have been better (at least with my current perspective). But this will surely add another dimension to the HK skyline. HK is insane! I want to steal some buildings to Toronto.

IMO It's a nice mid-riser. I love its form and the cladding is looking superb.

Well done Honkers!!

It is not extremely good and not bad. So just a good new building for Hong Kong. Actually a midrise in that area.

you can see the twisted skybridge at the very bottom of the pic. This alone is a masterpiece from a structural engineering standpoint. Specifically contracted out to Lesile Robertson to do the structural design. He is the structural engineer for BoC, SWFC, destroyed WTC...........
