Nina Tower

  (Redirected from Nina Towers)

Nina Tower (Chinese: 如心廣場; Cantonese Yale: Yùhsām Gwóngchèuhng) is a twin tower of 80-storey and 42-storey high-rise buildings in Tsuen Wan, New Territories, Hong Kong. The tower was designed to be the tallest tower in the world at 518 m (1,699 ft).[2] However, due to its location near Chek Lap Kok Airport, the height was restricted to the current 319.8 m (1,049 ft).

The owner of Chinachem Group later changed her plan and broke it into two towers. The lower is known as Nina Tower, symbolising the late Nina Wang or Kung Yu Sum natively, the owner of Chinachem Group; the higher is Teddy Tower, symbolising her husband Teddy Wang, who was kidnapped and has since disappeared. Despite the different tower names, the whole development is called Nina Tower.

The top 40 floors house an 800-room five-star hotel, L'hotel Nina et Convention Centre (如心海景酒店暨會議中心), while the 10th to 39th floors contain office space. Floors 1 to 5 contain shopping mall while floors 6 to 9 contain convention center. The 41st floor is a sky lobby which visitors can visit for free by accessing the elevators in the hotel's ground floor lobby. The skylobby provides wraparound views of Tsuen Wan and its harbour, Hong Kong's highest peak Tai Mo Shan, the island of Tsing Yi, and the Ting Kau Bridge connecting Tsing Yi with Ting Kau and Sham Tseng.
