International Commerce Centre adds a richer mix with new tenants committed

10 April 2008

Sun Hung Kai Properties, developer of Hong Kong's newest mega-tower, International Commerce Centre (ICC), has announced a number of new tenants to its landmark development. Following recent announcements of leading financial institutions such as Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley, Sun Hung Kai Properties has released a list of new tenants, which include a new branch for ABN AMRO, China Haidian, EFG Bank, SNP Vite and Titan Resources.

Sited at Union Square at Kowloon Station, West Kowloon, this distinctive 118-storey mixed-use mega-tower has been designed by world-renowned architects, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, and is being constructed in phases. Occupancy is scheduled to commence as early as the first quarter of 2008, with the tower's completion expected in 2010.

ICC's latest wave of new tenants represents a broad range of industries which highlights the fact that the mega-tower has become the preferred business address to numerous international corporations. The addition of these prestigious new tenants affirms ICC's emerging position as a leading commercial building in the city. It also underlines Sun Hung Kai Properties' determination to further enhance Hong Kong's established status of a global commercial hub.

"Hong Kong's business district has been expanding outward. ICC seized this opportunity and successfully attracted a myriad of prestigious tenants. It clearly demonstrates the importance of ICC as an outstanding business address. At ICC, we deliver an ideal office environment for all kinds of business with unparalleled connectivity. ICC sits right above a transportation mega-hub and we are proud to introduce leading-edge technological features in our office premises," said Mr. Lo King Wai, Deputy General Manager of Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency. "It has always been our objective to attract diversified tenants from a broad range of industries. We believe that this tenant mix is representative of Hong Kong's position as a vibrant business destination which not only matters greatly to the Pearl River Delta region, but to the whole world as well."

ICC embodies exceptional building and infrastructure specifications, management services and on-site hotel and accommodation in one single convenient package. It offers practicality and prestige, functionality and style to prospective tenants. Soon to open at the development are the new Ritz-Carlton Hotel, luxury serviced suite hotel The HarbourView Place, and Hong Kong's inaugural W Hotel. Together with Hong Kong's largest shopping mall Elements with its wide ranging food and beverage facilities, guests and tenants at ICC can practically enjoy the luxury of everything within a few minutes’ reach.

"We are proud to welcome all these new tenants to ICC. While there has been a great deal of attention paid only to certain headline tenancies to date, we would take this opportunity to note that ICC is an ideal location for all kinds of business, whether financial or otherwise, large or small, and with varying space requirements. Moreover, no other harbour-side development in Hong Kong offers the same quality, convenience, range of services and amenities, or spectacular views as ICC does. All these make ICC really stand out from the rest," added Mr. Lo.

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.

ICC will catch up 2IFC very soon but I doubt it will catch up 2IFC`s rental value in near future, I heard 2IFC is the world's most expensive building in terms of rental price (USD $25.5 per sq ft), that is crazy!

Now that would be possible, at least generally, there is no chance it will have the exact same core of course.

Great pictures. That view of the island skyline is stunning. I wouldn't be able to concentrate on work if I had a window facing it. It's like a painting.

Oh no! The entrance isn't as good as the overall design That's a disappointment The entrance should always look magnificent and "royal". The bigger and fancier, the better. This tower deserves a better one. That's like some dull never-heard hotel's entrance.

The pictures that we see above are only the 'side' entrance i think... cause the proper main entrance is the dragons tale which i remember in the diagrams to be pretty impressive in size and grandness.

so now it's only 70m to go, and that would take about 3-4 months. Hopefully we can see it topout by the end of August.

m4-3 = 415m, its now equal with 2ifc
i think the enormous core will reduce greatly over next few rises and then widdle way to nothing. the top 12 floors are steel construction with central atrium

So ICC will look like at the same height as 2IFC in the next year or so until the construction begins above the core..
