Architects have hit out at plans for a 180-metre-tall hotel on the former airport runway as part of the Kai Tak redevelopment project, warning it would create an urban eyesore. In its Town Planning Board submission, Urban Watch - a group of architects, planners and surveyors - said: 'A landmark building will not need to be a very tall building.' They said the proposed hotel would block the view of hill ridges over Kowloon from Quarry Bay Park on the opposite side of the harbour. Architects have combined to oppose southeast Kowloon urban designs. The Hong Kong Institute of Architects said there was no consistent policy on height control, which would compromise the shoreline.
