The Wharf Cable Tower (Chinese: 有線電視大樓) is a skyscraper located in Tsuen Wan in Hong Kong which was completed in 1993. The large building stands 197 metres (646 ft) tall with 41 floors of office and industrial space.[2] The skyscraper is also the tallest 'office / industrial' building in the city (though of course many purely commercial properties are much higher).[1] Attached to the southeast side of the building is an intermodal container (shipping container) elevator capable of lifting 40-foot containers to thirty floors up.
