The Merton 1 rises 59 floors and 197 metres (646 ft),[1][2] and stands as the 60th-tallest building in city. The Merton 2 and The Merton 3 rise 51 floors and 180 metres (591 ft),[2] and stand as the 100th-tallest buildings in the city; the two structures are tied in rank with the Sham Wan Towers and Liberté 5 and 6. The entire complex, composed almost entirely of residential units, was designed by architectural firm Ronald Lu & Partners and developed by New World Development.[1] It began construction in 1998, and was completed in 2005.[2] This is ranked as one of best residential building in Hong Kong Island.[citation needed] An underground transit railway station is under construction and expected to be completed in 2013.[needs update]

There are a few bars in front of the Merton, and many people come to the bar to enjoy happy hour.
