Bank of China Tower (BOC)
The building in the middle-left of the picture is The Bank of China Tower, one of the most well known landmarks of Hong Kong. The Tower was designed by the world renowned Chinese-American architect IM Pei (Ieoh Ming Pei). It was designed like bamboo, a symbol of strength and growth for Bank of China.

According to Feng Shui, the sharp edges of the triangular prisms of the Tower are bad feng shui to the surrounding buildings, such as the former Government House and Legislative Council Building.

Cheung Kong Centre
In comparison to the Bank of China Tower, the building to the right of the Tower is less impressive. However, it is actually the headquarters of Cheung Kong (Holdings) Limited, chaired by one of the most richest men in Hong Kong and the world, Hong Kong tycoon Li Ka-Shing, also known as the "Superman" of Hong Kong.

Some said that according to feng shui, the rectangular shape of the Centre is to avoid the sharp edges of the BOC Tower.
