Hong Kong snapshots | part I

View from The Belcher's | Hong Kong, July 6, 2009

Moving from one level to another, we discovered Hong Kong Island during our first day. Starting at “The Belcher’s“, a high-rise high-density residential development advertised as “a rare privilege for the precious few”, we wandered in-between the wobbling crowd, through a fine and colorful forest of slender skyscrapers.

Situated in the Pok Fu Lam area of Hong Kong (GoogleMaps), The Belcher’s is a six massive slabby development comprised of 2,213 domestic units (check the floorplans, designed by Simon Kwan & Associates Ltd). From an empty story in the middle of a 65 floor fragment of the development we caught a first glimpse of Hong Kong. From there we moved to the rooftop of our nearby hotel and strolled through the lower levels, enjoying the highrise distortions from below. A couple of snapshots.
