The Ocean Terminal will be renovated soon and gives a new image to the visitors. The heart of the project is the construction of a 96-storey, 405m height tower, known as the Gateway III.

In 2002, the government rejects the building of the skyscraper. Instead, a giant observation wheel will be built.

good news?
i think it is better....

i don't think a 96-storey skyscraper is a good idea there...
Building Gateway III to block the harbourview of the Gateway Service Apartment, isn't it stupid??

But for a giant observation wheel......
it is not bad, if they make it beautiful enough, like the one in London......

As long as I remember, the Gateway III project was not included in the exhibition centre of Hong Kong's infrastructure.
Many thanks - I have only known about the name "Skyline Tower" today through this thread!

Thanks!!!! Its amazing!!!!!!!

Does anyone know about this building?

"Westlands Road commercial development approved
Swire Properties' building plans for the redevelopment of Aik San and Melbourne industrial buildings at Westlands Road near TaiKoo Place have been approved. The approved plans are for a 69-floor building to be erected on the sites of the industrial buildings with a height of approximately 280 m.
The total site area is 109,900 sq ft, comprising about 54,800 sq ft from the sites of the industrial buildings and 55,100 sq ft of adjoining land. The approved gross floor area of 1.55 million square feet represents a plot ratio of approximately 14.0 on the total site area. The estimated construction cost is approximately HK$3 billion.
Demolition of the existing industrial buildings has commenced and is likely to take one year to complete. A decision on when to proceed with construction will be taken after this and the developer says the proposed development is likely to take four years to complete."
