Don't forget Burj Alam itself is already taller than ICC / SWFC
Ar3Man is talking about 100 tallest residential building.

those residential flats are so tall and so close that it looks like they get no sun at all.

ICC ( Kowloon West Skyline )

A Image mix both skyline

This can tell why ICC look shorter than Empire State Building...
The reason that I think in the size of building next to ICC is too huge and flat

Hong Kong have 38 out of 100. I made a mistake. ( they don't even hv Union Square Phase 6 complete)
I said top 100 Residential Building HK hv 40, is correct in some point.
Do Burj Alam and Pentominium complete? If not, they don't count,plx

I still can't face the fact that it's 1000 feet. To me it seems like it needs to be an extra 150 meters taller then it is right now to look like its over 1000 feet. It's kinda mind "boggling" and I kinda wish that the buildings beside this were 150m to 220m instead of 200m to 270m.
