I love the public access to this. Not only you can go to the observation floor but also up to the very top at the restaurant. What a dinner view that would be.

Tunnel ventilation system / facility for the Western Harbour Crossing.
The yellow one on the right is for the MTR.

Actually I think you're both wrong. They're actually transformers (of the robot variety not electrical) having a nap.

So the transformers transformed themselves into Ventilation Buildings while taking a nap in West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade then.

it is probably due to its triangular floor plan.

Deutsche Bank selects 12 floors of ICC for its
Hong Kong business





6 May 2008

Deutsche Bank is the latest in a series of high-profile names to announce a move to the International Commerce Centre (ICC) in West Kowloon. Currently located in Central, the investment bank plans to relocate its Hong Kong operations to the ICC from the third quarter of 2010.

"We are proud to have Deutsche Bank as one of ICC's most prominent tenants," says Sun Hung Kai Properties Vice Chairman and Managing Director Raymond Kwok. "ICC is one of Hong Kong's most striking and advanced landmark buildings, and the presence of Deutsche Bank is a solid endorsement of that vision."

Part of the mixed-use Union Square complex at Kowloon Station, at 118 storeys and 490m the ICC will be the world's third-tallest building when fully completed in 2010. Offering approximately 2.5 million sq-ft of Grade A office space, the structure has proven to be an especially attractive proposition due to its outstanding location, generously sized floorplates, and iconic, highly efficient design by Kohn Pederson Fox Associates.

Colin Grassie, CEO Deutsche Bank Asia Pacific, said "ICC delivers Deutsche Bank with a world class space solution that accommodates our rapid growth and keeps all our businesses together in one building. ICC meets all the bank's demanding technical and infrastructure requirements."

With an initial 12 floors totaling approximately 420,000 sq-ft, and the right to lease up to 18 floors, Deutsche Bank's overall space commitment and expansion options total 62,000 sq-m gross (equivalent of approximately 630,000 sq-ft), and will take full advantage of the building's inherent scalability and adaptability to a range of current and upcoming technologies. To allow for staff expansion to up to 4,000 from 1,500 currently, and to house all divisions and supporting infrastructure groups into one building, the large unobstructed volumes afforded by ICC's large 35,000 sq-ft floorplates were of particular interest to the investment bank.

Deutsche Bank will join a host of other major international financial firms such as Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley who have selected ICC as the ideal location for their Hong Kong headquarters. Within the same Kowloon Station complex as ICC are The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, Hong Kong's first-ever W-Hotel, the luxury serviced suite hotel The HarbourView Place and the high-end Elements shopping mall.
