Hong Kong’s streets and skyscrapers have undergone a historic transformation over the past few decades, reflecting the city’s evolution from a colonial outpost to a global financial hub.

In the early 20th century, Hong Kong’s streets were narrow and winding, with bustling markets and traditional Chinese shophouses. However, as the city grew and modernized, its streets were widened and straightened to accommodate the increasing traffic.

The development of Hong Kong’s skyline also underwent a dramatic transformation, with the construction of towering skyscrapers that now dominate the city’s skyline. The city’s first skyscraper, the Bank of China Tower, was completed in 1989 and stood as the tallest building in Asia for several years.
