- At the time of its completion, this was the tallest apartment building in Hong Kong.
- At the time of its completion, this was the tallest all-residential building in the world.
- Because of the way this building moves in the wind, the cladding and glass is screwed on.
- Because of the steep slope this building is built on, the main entrance is actually on the ninth floor.
- A series of water tanks at the top of the building act as a passive mass dampener, reducing the amount of swaying in strong wind.
- The top four residential floors of this building are single units, and include a steam room, sauna, a library, two jacuzis, four bedrooms, five bathrooms (one with separate his and hers toilets) and a maid's room.
