Completion date from "Names of Buildings".
I believe Ocean Centre is not the ones under Scafffoldings. If we count the blocks from Salisbury Road, Ocean Centre is the third block, in the order of Star House, Hong Kong Hotel/Ocean Theatre, then Ocean Centre. Its outer wall look the same today except for the main entrance and the shopping levels.
Those in scaffoldings are not completed yet.
Thanks & Best Regards,
Hi, I agree with tngan about the locations. As I see it the image was taken on Canton Road south of Haiphong Road. Far away is Star House, followed by Marco Polo Hotel at 3, Canton Road (with the balconies). Next block is Ocean centre. Under the scaffolds are Wharf T&T Centre and (closest) World Commerce Centre. Just compare on streetview.
Hi T & Klaus,
The "Photos that show this place" above just means that you can see Ocean Centre in the photos, not that the building under scaffolding is the Ocean Centre.
So you're both right, but your comments will be better added to the page for the photo, http://gwulo.com/atom/22758, to help readers understand what they're looking at.
