Central Plaza description and facts:
With 78 floors Central Plaza is the tallest building in Hong Kong. It was also the tallest building in Asia from 1992 to 1996, when Petronas Towers was built.

Has a viewing platform on the 44th floor, which opens on weekdays from 10 to 17.

At the time of its construction it was the tallest reinforced concrete structure in the world.

Skyscraper consists of three main parts: a high base of 30.5 m, where the main entrance and public places are located; 235.4 m middle of knowledge, containing 57 office floors; observatory, six floors with mechanical devices and a 102-meter tower, part of which is hidden inside the building.

On the ground floor, the building's rooms are very impressive, there is a huge, 30-meter marble-lined hall decorated with wall paintings, fountains and live palms. The first level is actually a public crossing linking the Mass Transit railway, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center and the Cina Resource Building.

At night, the outside of the building is illuminated, a triangular glass pyramid and a mast at the top. The building looks then like the "Big Syringe" and blends in perfectly with the Hong Kong skyline.

The skyscraper in the base and on each floor is a triangular shape, it has been designed so that 20% more offices have views from the windows of the bay and port. Air conditioning, electrical wiring and drainage are located in the middle in a narrow vertical corridor.

In order not to be obscured by neighboring constructors, they built an even higher skyscraper. During construction, architects encountered typical problems of skyscrapers: excessive static water pressure in the system and long distance of vertical transport of water.

The height of each floor is 3.6 meters, the proposed distance was 3.9 - 4.0, but for such a high building, the height increase by each meter increased the cost of the entire structure by approx. 1 million dollars

Central Plaza bardzo przypomina wiezowce budowane w miastach amerykanskich w latach 90, wg. zasady ''szklana tafla lamana u szczytu''.
