Located at 191 Java Road. According to their website :

Completed in 1991 as the headquarters of K. Wah Real Estates and the companies of K. Wah Group, this 30-storey waterfront tower is the first and only Grade-A office building in Hong Kong to have a private pier.

It is easily distinguishable from other buildings by its turquoise colour.

Massive door at North Point MTR exit B2

Hi

I recently moved to North Point and couldn't help notice that MTR exit B2 (the one leading to MacDonalds) has a massive metallic door (about ten inches thick!). That's totally odd, considering that other exits are protected with a simple metallic curtain, one of which is even installed behind the big door...

My first assumption was that there might have been a bank on the other side and this could have been a vault's door, but then I realised that the lock is apparently on the MTR side, not on the shop's side.
