There'll be restaurants on the other side of the plaza.
It would also encourage use of the plaza - otherwise there's nothing to do there except for tourists to look at the view (in summer).

Interesting news that the billionaire Kwok Brothers, who own the company that owns ASPAC, were arrested in Hong Kong today.

You will probably need to "resize" the photo to about 800 mp to fit your monitor screen.
