Well unless the Chinese are in the habit of building huge space shuttles on the water front in Hong Kong (one of the most densely populated places on Earth) I would say common sense should tell you that this is a building.

As it is now well established that this is a building maybe it is time to let this thread die a natural death.

I wonder what the building is for? It might be an art building, or a science museum or something.

It is a Mass Transit Railway station with a shopping plaza located above. It is built on the former site of the British "Admiralty Dock".

I've said it before, is there really any reason to keep this thread going?
