I can't believe it's now building another 300+m job! It's daunting.

Thanks for our first construction pic _00_deathscar. I was beginning to wonder.

You've forgotten the US6 north and south tower both just under 270m. I wonder if Hanoi Tower will be in the top 10 as there is no official height (as far as I'm aware).

Hanoi is supposed to be around 270/280m isn't it? I think you can stick it in just under Cheung Kong.

Only 2 years for 1 Island East to go from start to finish? That's pretty rapid.

This is a nice looking building. The skyline keeps going not only up but out.

Hooray, its actually under construction, and not just a big wet dream like ICC/US7 has been so far.

An excellent design.
