They are but I hope Kowloon doesn't overtake HK Island sometime in the future.

It seems that there are not many big plots of land left for future development in the Island whereas in Kowloon, there are quite some.

Don't know about that.

I think on HK Island, at least in the Western District, there will always be some sort of 'moral limit' as to how tall a skyscraper can be with regards to obstructing the view of and from the Peak Tower.

Where as there is no such limit on Kowloon.

There are but most likely it's gonna be in the west or eastern parts of the island.

I love the boards with the number of the floor
The building is realy cool, and Kowloon would be more and more dense.

That's three conflicting reports now.

Do you have a source?

The other 2 I've read said 260m, and one which said 308m (which also strangely in the same sentence mentioned that it's only 27m shorter than 2-IFC).

Does anyone have a confirmed height - perhaps from Swire?
