Wikipedia states that this pier (second generation) operated from 1968-2014. Last service was on 29 August 2014. It was demolished soon afterwards with the next Wanchai reclamation. The new pier is further east - see Starferry anouncement.

Here some photos from the wiki:

Pier from an interesting angle. One can see the neon sign "Bulova" on top of the building at south-west corner of Gloucester rd-Fleming rd junction at a distance.
