Impressive progress.
I counted only one more floor. I may have missed one, but there is no way they built 4 more floors since July 1st

Can you imagine how this area will look with ICC?



Absolute Madness.

NUMBER OF FLOORS ALERT!! took me ages to work this out.
ive just realized in HK they COUNT floors with 4 in them thus 118 floor bldg means
levels 4,14,24,34,44,54,64,74,84,94,104 and 114 are omitted, thus ICC rises 106 storeys above basement or 102 above grd! or 98 above entrance concourse. does everyone agree?
it even works out with this official elevation>
BUT the ICC floor count starts at the concourse level 5 levels above grd!
thus lev25

In Cantonese pronunciation, different digits come to different meanings:
"1" = Certainly
"2" = Easy or Likely
"3" = Live or Alive
"4" = Dead or Centry
"5" = No, Disobey
"6" = Road or Route
"7" = Stupid
"8" = Wealth
"9" = Long-life

while the digit "4" is most sensative; Therefore majority of developer will omit it unless "4" is in front of other digit.

ICC construction progress is considered SLOW in local industry,
the structural design on external ring of free standing columns is introducing much construction difficulty.

This elevation is the outdated 474m 102-storey version,
the plan has been changed several times during 2003-2005,
the height and number of floors increased after the project finialization,
only god knows if the central atrium still exsit in the final plan.
if the data from ssp.com is correct,the Main roof deck will be 470.6m above street level.

Is the floor plan geared towards investment bank trading floors with high ceilings like 2 IFC?

I can't imagine how darn large the shopping mall will be which is under those three tall giants.

Plus, my mathematics. craps. Can't count how many super brands will be there either.

thanks above day. coth-many devlopers when quoting number of stories, tend to include every level including basements. so who knows how many above grd. if it has 4 basements, that means 114storeies, but you take 12 storeis off because Chinese dont include floors with 4 in them, thus 102 stories?
