@ Raffles:

sorry, i dun got any news yet..
well, Nina Tower isn't located in the CBD ; it's in Tsuen Wan , a 'New Town' located northwest of Kowloon ,
in the New Territories.
I needed around 30 to 45 min to go to there by MTR (from Causeway Bay Station to Tsuen Wan Station).
But Mongchacha lives somewhere at HK Island , so she very seldom go there ...

I will please her to go to there , but i cannot promise if or when she'll go there .

Maybe some other forumer can go there and take some updates :)
Where are the HKers? :D:D:D

.
.
@ Fabb:
Actually there are 4 towers above the Pacific Place Shopping centre:
--One Pacific Place (Office Tower)
--JW Marriott Hotel
--Conrad Int'l Hotel
--ShangriLa hotel (Two PacificPlace)
(clockwise at any map)

Pacific Forum is a few 100 metre east-southeast of Pacific Place.( 2-3 min -walk)...
even a small hill is between both sites.

Maybe they connect both sites together, but i dun know about such a plan ...

SanMiguel, don't worry about the Nina tower's progress too much. There are hk forumer in the skyscraperpage's forum that post pics of nina tower occasionally.
don't "force" her too much. Updating the HK island part is good enough already. :)
