The Summit (Chinese: 御峰; Jyutping: jyu6 fung1) is a residential skyscraper located in Happy Valley, Hong Kong. It is one of the tallest residential buildings in the city, standing at 220 metres (722 ft) tall, with 65 storeys.[2] Construction of the building began in 1999 and it opened in 2001.[1] Highcliff, another tall skyscraper, stands right next to this building.[3]

Due to the visual effect of its proximity to Highcliff, another very thin and tall building, the two together are often referred to as "The Chopsticks".
