And eight corporates (maybe plus Ritz Caltron to make it nine on the top?) leased 80% of the floor spaces. Amazing.

EFG bank - look like more and more HK people find out where they can hide money at LOL!

Titan Resources - why a Canadian mining company need to rent Hong Kong IFC as office?

Mining companies the world over are booming because of the huge demand for raw materials from China. It makes sense to have a local office in China's international gateway city and financial hub.

All I can say is that Im impressed... it seems like yesterday that the first concrete columns, and core were poking just above the work site. Now we have a 100+ floor monster!

Same for the SWFC.. it was a cicrular hole in the ground for years, but once the money issue was fixed, that monster was built rather quickly too..

The Chinese really are kicking ass with these towers they are building so quickly!!
