The InterContinental Hong Kong (formerly The Regent Hotel) sits right on the edge of Victoria Harbour, and was the first high-rise building constructed over the sea. The caisson foundation system adopted consisted of the sinking of about 200 sea caissons into the bedrock beneath the seabed and the construction of a mat foundation over them. The project comprises the construction of a 16-storey deluxe hotel complex, rising in steps to create a flowered terrace on each level and providing 495 contemporary guest rooms.
