Manhattan Hill (Chinese: 曼克頓山) is a high-rise development located in the Lai Chi Kok district of Kowloon in Hong Kong, formerly Kowloon Motor Bus Lai Chi Kok Depot. The complex consists of five towers. Towers 1 and 2, which are interconnected, rise 51 floors, while towers 3, 5 and 6 rise 49 floors;[1] each of the five towers is 198 metres (650 ft) high.[2] The entire complex was developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties and was completed in January 2007.[1]

Manhattan Hill was initially designed to rise 187 metres (614 ft) in height, but the towers were later enlarged to the present heights to accommodate larger residential units.[2] At the same time, the total number of units planned for each of the five towers decreased; the entire complex was initially designed to contain 1,300 units, but this was later downsized to 1,100 units to allow for larger suites.[2]
