This building is situated at Admiralty near the Central District. It is now called Lippo Centre, but it was originaly called the Bond Centre. I do not quite remember whether it was named after Alan Bond, and the stories behind. I recollect that there was once a bank located in this building and it was later closed down. I wonder... More

These hard to miss twin office towers, completed in 1988, are meant to suggest koalas hugging trees. No coincidence as these towers were previously known as Bond Centre, after Perth-based beer magnate and America’s Cup winner Alan Bond. You will still find a reminder of this Aussie connection in the main hall, where two massive stone works by famous local... More

Hong Kong is full of Skyscrapers. Many are lighted and show their glory at night while the Lippo Centre shares it's glory during the day. Interesting and intriguing, a curiosity for fans of architecture and uniqueness. Best appreciated from the outside and at a bit of a distance.

We walked past this earlier on our way through the town and both commented that the building looked like it was playing tetris! Interesting architecture, but that's about it.

Twp office towers in Admiralty, Lippo Centre is special in its appearance. People who love taking photos may like to come and see what it looks like and use your imagination. Not much to see otherwise.

Lippo Centre is famous for its interesting appearance. It is a commercial building. I do not think that it is really a tourist attractions to visit. Of course, tourists may like to take picture of this building.

The two unique buildings can be seen from many places in Hong Kong, but I'd say their best angle is from Hong Kong park. The architecture of the buildings is phenomenal and one can speculate just what was the architect trying to achieve here. Either way, the end result is a stunning example of creativity in architecture.

This iconic building, previously known as the Bond Centre, was finished in the late 1980s and were designed by American architect Paul Rudolph. It is one of the most iconic buildings that make up the HK skyline which you can see from many places in HK with a different view from every place.

It is buildings like these that make Hong Kong's skyline so interesting when one looks into the details. Not the biggest, hence hard to spot in the sky line line-up, but when you walk around, find it and look up, you will be in awe.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
