This tower(ICC) also looks just as massive as the WTC. I love wide and tall skyscrapers.

It's hard to figure that it is as high as WTC. For me it looks like 250 tall in those latest pictures. How wide is it?

That's because the Harbourside is both fatter and taller than any single tower of the World Financial Centre. I also suspect that when the glass cladding is extended for the full length of the tower, the perceived visual height will be greatly increased.

ICC tops 2-IFC - so they held a party on 2-IFC rooftop to celebrate?
