I don't have anything against T101, but its style doesn't quite suit me as I don't get a "let's get down to business" feel from it.

SWFC's shape and observation deck are interesting; my only dislike is the generic cladding.

2IFC has a great timeless design except for the slightly goofy roof.

Looks like ICC might hit the spot for me. Who cares about the total number of floors, it's the actual height and the spaciousness of the floors that matter.

I agree. T101 is so fugly. Stacked up Chinese take-out boxes. Nothing more.

Plus it looks so out of place as the only true skyscraper in the area.

Wow. Nice post!



Nice anchors on the corners though. Kowloon is developing nicely. Indeed! Time for more supertalls.
