Yeah it's basically the same height as IFC2 now. A few more floors and it'll be HK's tallest.

I thought the IFC was 416 or something? That's still 60m away!

The roof height of 2IFC is 406.9m, ICC is still 50m shorter than her sister but will
surpass Bank of China Tower, Central Plaza and Empire State Building very soon

I love the city's lighting effects, but when is the last time that a person from Hong Kong saw a star?

Hong Kong is a big place. If you are talking about Kowloon and Victoria Harbor, then no one will be able to see one. You should see Hong Kong on New Year's Eve where many buildings flashes like a big "disco" city with fireworks at the harbor of course!

Looking good, but for some reason it does not look like its 352m tall. I don't know why I think that?

Because all the towers around it are very tall and because this thing is very bulky, giving the illusion that it is shorter.

88th floor already?? So the height of each floor should be shorter than that of 2IFC...

Has less than 88 floors, you know they're skipping floors with 4 etc...

I think there're still 88 floors, they replace those skipped "4" floors by M floors.
