Why is there no residential architecture in Hong Kong?

It’s a well-known fact that the city’s skyscrapers are largely located on the west side of the city, but that’s not always the case.

The east side of Hong Kong is home to the bustling districts of Mong Kok and Admiralty, and the city has been building up a large and diverse collection of apartment buildings in those areas since the mid-1990s.

It’s the east side that is home only to a tiny proportion of the population of the territory, but it has been home to a small number of buildings for many decades.

While it’s not quite the city of Manhattan or Dubai, it is a pretty decent city, and it’s a place that we’re constantly reminded of by those who visit it.

It has also been home, in the last decade or so, to a huge number of high-profile skyscraping projects that have had a major impact on the city.

But while Hong Kong’s skyline has been changing, the apartment buildings have remained largely the same, with some new additions over the years, as well as a few old buildings that have been renovated over the past decade or more. 

A new skyscraper for the Hong Kong stock exchange is set to open next year, and in recent years the city had a steady supply of new residential apartments.

It looks like we’ve seen a change in Hongkongers’ attitude to the skyline over the last few years, which is exciting.

But if the skyline is still a pretty good thing to look at, why is there not more residential architecture? 

The skyline of Hongkongs main shopping district Jingshan is the most famous of the skyscrapings in Hong Kong.

It sits on the edge of the Pearl River Delta and sits on top of a series of skyscrapes, with the most notable of these being the GYM.

It was designed in 1997 by the late J.J. Brown, who is best known for designing the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Grand Palais in Paris.

The Eiffels are the tallest buildings in the world, but the grandest and most famous skyscraper in Hong Hong Kong (and in the whole of the world) is the GYP, which sits on a hillside in Mong Kok.

The GYP was constructed to stand out from the surrounding skyline, with a large white cross painted onto its tower.

It is one of the tallest and most iconic skyscrap, and while its grandeur has been well-documented, many Hong Kongers do not realise that it’s just one of many skyscrapies in the area.

The only other other skyscraper on the island is the iconic skyscraper known as the Great Wall, which rises above the Hong Kowloon skyline. 

It is difficult to find an apartment in Mong Kowlong, as it is not an affordable place to live, and many Hongkangers live in their cars.

This means that most Hongkites do not have a chance of finding an apartment that would suit their budget.

But with so many new high-rise residential developments coming to Hong Kong in the past few years (most notably the GYE Tower), many are looking to the city to see what kind of apartment housing it offers, and what sort of design they can afford.

In this article, we look at the best and worst examples of Hong Kongs residential architecture over the decade that has followed the GYC. 

The Great Wall Tower The GYMP is a high-end skyscraper that sits atop a hilltop, and although it is no longer the tallest building in Hong kong, its influence is still apparent in many Hong kongs residential buildings.

It may not be as grand or as impressive as the EJB Tower, but for the most part it is still recognisable, and with its location on the top of the peninsula, it offers a lot more room than a large building on the eastern side of Mong Kong, or even the top floors of Admiralty. 

In fact, the GYD is one that Hongkis residents have been clamouring for for some time now.

The first of its kind in HongKong, the tower was built in 1995 to replace the old GYMT tower, which had fallen into disrepair due to the ongoing effects of Typhoon Nargis.

The tower was originally designed to stand on top the GYA Tower, which was destroyed by Typhoon Naguib.

It was designed to be the tallest tower in Hong Lim City, and was built as a huge glass box with a tall roof, allowing it to be more of a high rises tower than a traditional skyscraper.

Its new height of 394 metres (1,743 feet) has been a major selling point for many buyers, as the tower’s main appeal is that it is taller than the previous tallest skyscraper, the EJ Tower, with only a third of the height
