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 occupy the 27th to 67th floors.
The project was jointly developed by New World Development and the Urban Renewal Authority (URA). The building, along with other URA projects, has been criticized for its destruction of historical sites, and for damaging the existing community by contributing to gentrification which pushes out the less well-off.
