An old residential apartment block squeezed between newer taller buildings, hidden behind glassy high risers in Hong Kong's financial district. Underneath the building are shop units, where the businesses have been running for generations. Such buildings are very common in Hong Kong, even today. However, they are usually hidden behind the new tall glassy office blocks. It will not be long before they are torn down and pave way for more boring soulless buildings made out of glass and concrete.
