It has been asked before sharpie20.

Possibly because it's such a large construction and (by the looks of it), having a rather complicated superstructure. Also, they are constructing a whole mega-complex here, not just the one building. I mean look @ the size of the whole damn thing - it's quite awe inspiring.

It is slow because it is not easy.
Thank you.

Good update!

It's rising maybe 2 or 3 floors every week now. It does look somewhat awkward with the base pillars (I would imagine that these would go all the way up to the top?)

its basically a large central core surrounded by engaged structural piers joined by steel floor plates. A strong way of building a very tall structure.

Actually it is 19 floors tall, as can be seen by the sign on the top of the core.

I really like the whole complex. US5 & 6 and ICC will be absolutley amazing, Harbourside is lil' too fat, but looks good and interesting, Sorrento Towers are ok, far more better than most of the HK's residental towers. But I HATE the arch! Big, 230 meters tall brown shit! It has destroyed whole Union Square complex! Worst HK scraper!!!
