Hong Kong Land tried to buy the Hang Chong Building in the 1980's so they could redevelop the block jointly with Standard Chartered but the owners refused to sell and instead later redeveloped it into the present Henley Building. The joint redevelopment of the site with Standard Chartered was abandoned and the oddly shaped Galleria was built on the HK Land owned sites.
A good aerial shot of the building in 1983 can be found here
This building was constructed in 1965
