Category:Peak Tower (first design)
English: The current Peak Tower is the second on the site. Construction of the first one started in 1960, and it was opened on 29 August 1969. The Tower Restaurant was situated on the top deck while the Peak Coffee Shop was located on the floor below. Both the upper floors were supported by two columns allowing a clear space between the upper and lower parts of the tower. This design feature has been retained in the redeveloped tower, but with quite a different shape to the upper section. The first tower was demolished in 1993 and a groundbreaking ceremony on the new tower was held later the same year.
