我們的熨斗大廈 our flatiron building

2013.6.5 | 灣仔道與莊士敦道交界 wanchai road crosses johnston road

紐約一眾摩天大廈地標中,有熨斗大廈。在本城也有它的姐妹建築。

灣仔的中匯大樓,敢說是香港圓角樓的代表。

她出生於六十年代,本來外貌風霜,近一年外牆翻生,變得花俏。

來到灣仔這角落,一定想起兩位老街坊:這座圓角熨斗大樓,以及蹲守她跟前的一棵細葉榕。

new york has its iconic flatiron building. hong kong also has our representative – chung wui mansion in wanchai. to me this is the round-cornered building of the city .

chung wui was built in the 60s of the 21st century. it used to be the highest building in the area. last year it underwent renovation and since then adopting this ‘pop’ look.

regardless of its modern appearance, it together with the big old chinese banyan underneath are the two best old guardians of the area.
