Imagine our surprise yesterday when we stumbled out of the maze of assorted stalls of the Wan Chai Market--which sell clothing, jewelry, toys alongside meat and live, still-flapping-in-a-box fish--came face-to-face with this--the construction site for the upcoming Hotel Indigo Hong Kong.

The project was first announced back in 2009 and the dragon-wrapped hotel on the bustling Queen's Road East will open sometime next year. What's that you say, a dragon-wrapped hotel? Yes, the hotel's exterior will feature a "conspicuous dragon in burnished bronze" that will also function as an eco-screen to counteract hot spots and solar gain.

Inside there will be 150 Feng Shui-designed rooms and since Hotel Indigo is all about the local neighborhood, we're guessing the history of the Wan Chai 'hood will be featured prominently throughout.
