Yes, I saw the posting on One Island East on SSP and was instantly very interested. It looks exactly like the ICC renderings.

But this will be very tall. I too would like to know the actual height. I wouldn't be surprised if this one was well over 800 ft (considering 68 floors of office). Keep us updated!

That's such a nice and informative thread. Many projects are going on in HK. I was wondering How expensive is the land in CBDs in HK?

Island East's design is nice but reminds me a bit of Houston's tallest scraper.

It just hit me why Hong Kong has such a high score on Emporis. Emporis doesn't count the volume of skyscrapers; points are allocated based solely on the number of buildings and their floor count. Because Hong Kong's terrain is so hilly, engineers have to design relatively thin, tall buildings buildings to minimize land displacement costs, which means they also have to build more buildings to achieve the most floor space.

The typical floorplate of a residential building is about 6-8 units per floor. While they may look skinnier than, say, their North American counterparts, they are far taller so the volume discrepancy is minimialized. Some of the older North American apartments can average 10 units per floor or more, but they don't often exceed 20 stories, yet these Hong Kong counterparts typically reach 30 stories (now the new ones go 40 stories and up). I don't think the new condominiums in North America average 10 units per floor anymore. They've gotten skinnier as well.

18 Westlands Road is fantastic

reminds me of that stunner in Shanghai with a sky-atrium--even shades of the old Hanoi with those winglets atop~~
