Views looking up The Center skyscraper

Height: 346m / 1,148 ft high

This skyscraper building has 73 floors. The tower is steel-structured with no reinforced concrete core.

The Center is located in centre of Hong Kong business district, rather tacky reflective glass tower based on square plan with smaller 45 degree rotated square within and expressed. The Center glows in different colours at night with a sequence of neon horizontal strips getting progressively closer to each other up the building.

This skyscraper is the 5th tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong, after International Commerce Centre, Two International Finance Centre, Central Plaza and the Bank of China Tower. As the name suggests it is pretty central to the city and due to the ground level is quite prominent
