With over 1200 skyscrapers, Hong Kong is the most vertical city in the world. Its horizon started to swell in 1960s, when financial institutions proclaimed their wealth with grand high-rises. In 1970s the city began reclaiming land from the sea and settling the new Wan Chai and Causeway Bay districts with giant towers. Some of the most iconic buildings such as Jardines House were built in this period. Over the years, Hong Kong added hundreds of skyscrapers, melding them into one of the most beautiful city skylines. Today, people come to the Avenue of Stars to marvel at this vibrant city, reaching ever higher into heavens.
