...I am at first confused by some building work underway across just a few yards of water. It is not, however, Kowloon, but the new terminal. A few protesters are hanging around the adjacent Queen’s Pier, on what is its last day before it, too, faces demolition.
Hi, everyone, here is my interpretation of the red part:
"some people gather around the Queen's pier in the vicinity to make protest against the rash decision of pulling down of the pier in the near future?" What do you think then?

    On the contrary, it seems like the decision to demolish the building was planned in advance. There is nothing to indicate that it was a rash decision. I agree that the red part is a little heavy, but it is in essence saying that Queen's Pier, in addition to other pier(s) or building(s) already demolished, will be demolished tomorrow.
