This looks like the square platform for the HK Colliseum in Hung Hom. My father was involved in the fact finding process for the team of architects- which involved a trip to some of the major sporting venues in the USA. I believe they built the roof first, and then built the rest under it and hoisted the roof as they went along!!!

Hung Hom Ferry Piers are visible. A Star Ferry is approaching, another ferry (HYF?) is leaving.
