after this building is completed, i think the gov will setup a new regulation to ensure no ugly building would dominate any skyline in hk.

Didn't know they're building a Hilton in there?

That should be interesting.. a week or so back I think I was talking to WANCH about how Hong Kong needs a Hilton again.

Must visit sometime

So once all the current U/C towers are finished:

1. ICC
2. 2-IFC
3. Central Plaza
4. Bank of China
5. Nina Tower
6. Island East
7. Cheung Kong
8. Hanoi

Am I missing something?

I don't think they can finish everything by year end. It isn't even topped out yet, then there are the facade and interiors.

Those 7 buildings will have an average height of 373m. Not bad that...

The top 10 buildings in Hong Kong will have an average height of 343.3m!

Strange calculation that -

The average height of the top 10 buildings is as tall as the 5th buildings.

The average height of the top 7 buildings is as tall as Central Plaza, the 3rd building.

Actually wait that makes sense lol..
