Looks good from that angle, but looks its best at night .

By the way, is there anything planned for that big empty area just beyond it on the left of the road?

Funny thing is that the building with the circles is regarded by many as Hong Kong's oldest "true" skyscraper.. and you still thought that it was a new building. I think that speaks well for Jardine House... it has hardly aged at all. Still looks good today.

Hong Kong doesn't have that many towers as glassy as AIG...it looks like a translucent piece of crystal.
