Cool HONG KONG | Highrise Developments Compilation Thread

Too bad the old forum's gonna be deleted soon.
Anyway we can continue discussing here.

Venusfan are you sure there are two 6x-storey buildings instead of one? Are they both near Taikoo Shing?

All I can say is there are two "projects". There may be two 60+ stories buildings in the area, or probably nothing is built eventually.

The first one is the redevelopment program of Somerset House, Cornwall House and the Warwick House, which are all owned by Swire. The 3 buildings occupy a total site area of over 100,000 sf. If the 3 buildings are replaced by a single tower, the GFA is around 1.6 msf., and the tentative height is about 65 stories.

The second one is the redevelopment programe of Aik San and Melbourne industrial buildings. Swire acquires the two buildings in 2002, and originally the proposal redevelopment is 36 stories, 820,000 sf. However, couple days ago Swire announce that the project shall be changed to 67 stories, 1.55 msf., and the plan has granted approval from the Buildings Department, yet no exact timeline has been set.

The Gateway III project was only proposed and personally I don't think they are going to build it in the near future.
Anyway, the most recent design of it had changed. If it is to be built, it will look like an ordinary rectangular box with dark colours.




AIG Tower

The "Harbour Gateway" formed by 2IFC and US7 will be completely destoryed if Gateway III is finally get built!

That Harbour Gateway is a joke intended for the journalists.
On the other hand, if the 450-m GatewayIII was built, it would be visually connected with both US and 2IFC.

Also, BOC and CKC would also be gone in the skyline.
No way~~~

Right.
They're doomed to be excluded from the super-tall category anyway.

Might be we need a cylinder like building at the site instead of the current design making a contrast with BOC and CKC.

You see that BOC is full of corners, and CKC is a perfect square.
A cylinder building like Hopewell would probably fit in the skyline.

I don't think so.
The developer has said that the Harbour Gateway will be a gift to Hong Kong after she will have returned China for 10 years.
