Apologies in advance if this a FAQ. Is there any chance they will add 9m to ICC so they can beat Shanghai's WFC as the tallest building in China?

Don't think so. Hong Kong generally puts in more practical thought when building skyscrapers. Central Plaza was planned to be taller than the ESB, but they scaled it down just for economy's sake.

You should've checked Post 2686 first, it's still 398 m most likely.

It'll look fantastic with all of the cladding up.

I also like the interior look, although it's too bad that there are those columns in there. Otherwise it looks kind of like the old WTC.
