Description
Architect: Hsin-Yieh Architects and Associates Ltd.

- Although often listed as having 70 stories, this building actually lacks the following floors: 4, 14, 24, 34, 44, 54, 64. Thus in reality it is a 63-story building. The above floors are "missing" because 4 is an inauspicious number as it sounds much like the word for death.

- The Cheung Kong Center is adorned by a grid of fiber optic lights that can be programmed to change color. This sprakling illumination is only enhanced by the building's black curtain wall which makes the building a silhouette in the daytime, and an inky peaceful void at night."(Quoted from http://www.glasssteelandstone.com/CN/CheungKongCentre.html )
