Goldman Sachs in NYC will at least be $2 billion, the exact figure has been floated around as $2.4 billion, but hasn't really been confirmed yet.

Hong Kong's HSBC headquarters costed US$1 billion back when it was built in the 1980s. With inflation, that US$1 billion would be a lot more money today.

the current most expensive project around is london bridge tower. thats official. i should add the total that will has given doesnt include the purchase and demolition of the nearby london bridge house which is part of the project - they spend £35 million buying land simply to build a plaza on. when factoring in the cost of the attached station too then the cost rises even further. it is at least 2.175 billion dollars. the budget is comparible to hsbc in hong kong if you adjust for inflation.
