Hong Kong by night

The website for Frank Gehry’s new apartment building in Hong Kong, OPUS HONG KONG, features an amazing pair of 360 degree panoramas of the city, by day and by night. See also the axonometric pixel map of the city at HongKong.edushi.com (which also hosts maps of Hangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and undoubtedly more). Note how empty lots are peopled with little yellow bulldozers and piles of RSJs waiting to be craned into action.
