They've been testing it for a while - I think a posted an update saying they'd put some strips of lighting up a couple of months back.

The building is set to open in March 2008, so that's very, very unlikely.

Nearly. And yes, it's almost done - like I said, it's scheduled to open some time in March.

That's good news. When it's completed it looks even better than I thought it will. Hope to see some fully lit night pictures soon.

Yes, i find this tower simple, but elegant and graceful, the small fins of glass at the top look wonderful and simple, i would love a tower like this in Los Angeles...

It's a classic addition to the Hong Kong skyline,....... good job!!!!!

Awesome building.

Any news on the acquisition for the residential development across from this building? I forgot the name of it.

Also nearly completed - they're working on the inner furnishings.

This is great news. The top is very elegant and stylish. Glassy cladding and simple design looks fantastic. This is a great way of showing the design doesn't have to be UFO-like.

It's a nice tower but I wish they'd worked harder to disguise the ventilation grills on the otherwise sleek facades.
