I still remember last time they taken off The Haborside's scarfoldings, it was a lot faster.

Looks pretty weird actually, but it helps enhancing the Kowloon skyline.

I do like the building, but it looks like it's coming out to be different than planned (at least in the mid-section cladding).

The middle section in this future skyline render from the U/C ICC thread makes it look a lot different.

It hasn't lost all it's wrapping before christmas, but it's getting there. I will only judge the cladding when it's completely out in the open.

Thanks for all the fantastic updates fatshe

How can you tell because 1) we've only ever seen a very poor rendering of it & 2) the green mesh isn't off as yet (but we get the idea it's the same all the way up, apart from the plant room floor breaks)?

...and yes, thanks again fatshe

Just wondering, is there a height limit to which Hong Kong uses bamboo scaffholding?

They don't seem to be using it for ICC, Island East and didn't use it for 2-IFC, all of which are 300m+, but they've used it for Hanoi which is just under 300m.

I think the cladding looks pretty good, especially from those close-up photos thanks to Car L. They are fabulous.

I personally will reserve *final* judgement until the entire thing comes off.
