I don't know why the 2ifc and ICC in the nearly same height at the photo as I seem?
ICC(484m) ,2ifc (415m)=different height in 69m.

you are not the first person to ask this question.
notice the distance between IFC and ICC to the camera are different.

@danny

2ifc is closer to the camera

But in fact there will be even more towers in 2010 I think. (Like Hanoi road)

WOW. The first one is SUPERB. It looks like you combined two of the photos that I found . Very clever, Aboveday. The picture looks really believable. Great Job! That merged picture is one of the best that I have ever seen.

Very nice find. EMPORIS has Hanoi Road listed as: (275m/902f, 69 stories, 2006)
Hong Kong has 5 Towers taller than 250m/ 820 ft. U/C

That's impressive. But HK has over 400 buildings over 40 stories.. just in the New Territories. This doesn't even include Kowloon or HK island itself
http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/bo/?id=100118


Hanoi Road is such a significant project. Why haven't there been many updates or a thread even? Even more surprising is that there is no high quality render.
I think I've ruined this thread now. But anyways.. back on topic. Yes the two towers will look mighty. They should find some way to integrate ICC into the Symphony of Lights so it will be a cross harbour spectacle.
