The base is outstanding, didn't have many expectations about this tower in the beggining, but i must admit it's impressive.

Construction is very similar to shanghai world financial centre, on the corners its, steel girdir in place, wrap it around with dense steel rebar then pour concrete in shape.

He shows what a difference 400m make in 3 years.

By the way: on leomac's superclear closeup you see that one crane has been removed - there's only the shaft left and 3 cranes remaining.

With the next level (M4-3), ICC will have 415m and catch up with IFC2: there'll be two tallest buildings in Hongkong for a short while.
