Murray House

A historical building in Stanley accomodates high class resturants and museum with breath taking sea view. The building was originally located in Central but transported to Stanley due to urban redevelopment. Each stone was marked, disassembled and re-assembled again in Stanley. One of the very few buildings left from that era.

Hopewell Centre

Looks like we have another city added. Let’s all welcome…

Budapest, Hungary

Hilton Budapest

The 5-star Hilton Budapest is situated in the heart of the historic Castle District that is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is accordingly strictly protected. In keeping with such traditions, the Hilton Budapest has certainly preserved the spirit of the Castle District. A perfect example would be the restored remains of a 13th century Dominican churchyard and cloisters that are now incorporated into the contemporary building. Hilton Budapest welcomes its guests with famous hospitality of Hungary.

XVIII. kerületi Víztorony, Lakatos út

Liberty Statue / Szabadság Szobor

The Szabadság Szobor or Liberty Statue (sometimes Freedom Statue) in Budapest, Hungary, was first erected in 1947 in remembrance of the Soviet liberation of Hungary from Nazi forces during World War II. Its location upon Gellért Hill makes it a prominent feature of Budapest's cityscape. Over the following years, public sentiment toward the Soviets decreased to the point of revolution, which was attempted in 1956 and subsequently damaged some portions of the monument. After the 1989 transition from Communist rule to a more Democratic government, the inscription was modified to read "To the memory of all of those who sacrificed their lives for the independence, freedom, and success of Hungary."

The Fishermen’s Bastion with the Matthias Church (Halászbástya és a Mátyás-templom) Budapest

The Fishermen’s Bastion: Completed in 1905 on the site of a former fish market - this is where the name comes from.It has never served defence purposes: It is an excellent look-out place. Matthias Church: Officially called the Church of Our Lady, the church is named after the main donor King Matthias, who got married here twice. This symbol of the city was built in the 13th - 15th century in Gothic style. Restored in the second half of the 19th century and rebuilt in neo-Gothic style on basis of the designs by Frigyes Schulek. The cityscape opening up from here, including the Fishermen's Bastion, has been part of UNESCO's World Heritage since 1988.

Wow, we have another city added to Citites in Development. Those folks at Google have been busy! Let’s all welcome…

Sankt Bartholomäus wurde als Pfarrkirche der nach Norden erweiterten Altstadt gegen Ende des 12. Jahrhunderts im Stile einer romanischen Dorfkirche erbaut. Danach war sie Kapelle, und ab 1350 wieder Kirche. Im 13. und 14. Jahrhundert wurde die Kirche im gotischen Stil umgebaut, im 14. und 15 Jahrhundert wurden dem Westbau zwei spitze Helme aufgesetzt. Nach der Reformation diente die Kiche als Vorlesungsraum und ab 1671 als Zeughaus. 1708 schenkte Herzog Anton-Ullrich die neuerlich umgebaute Kirche der evangelisch reformierten Kirche, die sie seitdem für ihre Gottesdienste nutzt. 1834 wurden die Helme nach einem Sturmschaden abgetragen. 1944 wurde die Kirche bis auf die Außenmauern zerstört, danach ohne Türme bis 1953 wiederaufgebaut.

Paris, France

La Tour Eiffel

The Eiffel Tower (French: Tour Eiffel, /tuʀ ɛfɛl/) is an iron tower built on the Champ de Mars beside the River Seine in Paris, France. The tower has become a global icon of France. The Parisian landmark is the tallest structure in Paris and one of the most recognized structures in the world. Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, 6,719,200 people visited the tower in 2006 and more than 200,000,000 since its construction. This makes the tower the most visited paid monument in the world per year. Including the 24 m (79 ft) antenna, the structure is 324 m (1,063 ft) high (since 2000), which is equivalent to about 81 levels in a conventional building.

New York City, New York

4 Times Square

In 1995, Four Times Square was the first speculative office building to be developed in New York City in almost a decade. It has 48 stories of occupied space and was the first project of its size and financial structure (multi-tenanted and not owner-operated) in the U.S. to adopt standards for energy efficiency, sustainable materials, and indoor environmental quality, as well as for responsible construction, operations, and maintenance practices.

Chrysler Building

The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco skyscraper in New York City, located on the east side of Manhattan at the intersection of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. Standing 1,046 ft 4.5 in (319 meters) high, it was briefly the world's tallest building before it was overtaken by the Empire State Building in 1931. It still remains the worlds tallest brick building to this day. After the destruction of the World Trade Center, it is again the second tallest building in New York City. This classic example of Art Deco architecture is considered by many to be the finest building in New York City.
