Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island is 552m... and if memory serves, there is a building hight restriction of 500m in that area (they can't be taller than the nearby mountains or some such).

According to the documents from HK Government, there is no height restriction but plot ratio limit at the site of Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link Terminal and MTR West Rail Link West Kowloon Station at the moment, but for other construction sites in West Kowloon area, there are height restrictions of 80m to 130m.However, I believe that the gov will put the height restriction on every single site in the area very soon.

i think the entrance tail facing the sea would look better. because where it is at the moment is in the shadows of the other buildings.

In the article they only said they would think about building something like the ICC instead of they're planning.

well they said Bay Mei, which kinda means rival or comparable only. kinda like... as in beauty. I don't think it necessarily means it's gonna be as tall.

Is the proposed landmark supertall the The Gateway III (Harbour City)?
Which is 450m as stated by Emporis.com.

No, Harbour City is a fair distance from ICC.

so what current floor height? it was 97 last week. maybe 98 or 99?
that would make it nearly 390m.
