The building is visible in satellite images older than 2008 (Available through Google Earth).
The site for Fraser Suites is still up (http://fraser-suites-hong-kong.top-h...g-kong.com/en/) and that site claim 1983 and renovated in 2008. The architecture sure looks more 80s than 00s.

The Emporis entry need an update anyway. It's still called Fraser Suits, even though the building changed name 5 Years ago (check Google Streetview from 2014).
