@ Chad : The Tamar site next to the Prince of Wales Building was supposed to be part of the new government headquarters project. Reclamation along the harbour will create a huge park with a highway buried underneath. However, due to the government budget deficit, the headquarters plan has been shelved for now. Instead, the paved empty lot is now a temporary exhibition ground.

I thought it would be cool if they just built a big ass stadium there, kinda like the Reliant Stadium in Houston but it's too bad the rest of the world doesn't watch Football. Then again they could build a very nice soccer stadium or some huge convention center.

I would just love to see a big building occupy that space that doesn't interfere with the upper levels of the skyline.

that piece of land is easily one of the most expensive in the world. Building a stadium is just waste of land and resources.

Good point. I wish they could build another super tall building there but too bad it will hide some key buildings in the skyline if they did that.
