YES it will!!!

As of 27 January 2008, the concrete core is at level 100 and the core's height is about 394 m (1,293 ft)

so, one more floor = 400 m

i can't believe that ICC has nearly/already passed the 400m mark and also become the
7th building in the world to have 100 floors thats great news bad news is only 18 floors to go would've been nice if hong kong got their first 500m+ building especially with the design of this building will look very nice

this is amazing stuff. it really is a huge historical milestone. china has the last 3 towers over 100 floors for the last 34 years excluding burj dubai and if you count taiwan as china.

edit: what i should have said is 'china has the only buildings in the past 34 years with over 100 floors (excluding dubai and counting taiwan as china) and it has not one but three
