The K11 shopping mall

The Masterpiece (Chinese: 名鑄) is a 64-floor 261 metre (856 ft) tall skyscraper in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. It houses the 6-storey K11 shopping centre. The 381-room Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui, located from Level 3 to 24, opened on October 2, 2009. 345 residential flats[1] occupy the 27th to 67th floors.[2]

The complex is connected to both Tsim Sha Tsui and East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR stations via underground subway links with the K11 shopping centre.

History[edit]

The project was jointly developed by New World Development and the Urban Renewal Authority (URA).[1][3] The project, along with other URA schemes, has been criticized for its destruction of built heritage, existing community, and for contributing to gentrification which pushes out the less well-off.[4][5]
