The Victoria Towers (Chinese: 港景峰; Jyutping: gong2 ging2 fung1) is a high-rise development located in the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Hong Kong. The complex consists of three towers, each rising 62 floors and 213 metres (699 ft) in height.[2][1]

The complex is located at No.188 Canton Road, at the intersection with Austin Road. The towers currently[when?] stand as the second tallest buildings in Tsim Sha Tsui, behind the 64-storey Hyatt Regency Hong Kong,[3] and as the 35th-tallest buildings in all of Hong Kong. The complex was designed by Rocco Design Architects Limited and developed by Cheung Kong Holdings and Hutchison Whampoa Properties.[2] The towers are composed entirely of residential units.[1]

The base of the complex is occupied by a shopping mall, the Victoria Mall (港景匯商場).
