Absolutely stunning photo!

Wish I could go to the Skyscraper museum as well. Looks like a great deal of effort was put into building those models!

The top of 2IFC looks like a small cloud in the first photo, the building itself is almost invisible...

Definitely not Tsing Yi, way too far north. I'm guessing Discovery Bay.

Just go pages back and find some, you'll find a lot of ICC photos at high resolution.

It's good to see the cladding catch up with the height of this tower, but when will it start growing again. Are they going to finish the exterior all the way first and then resume the top floors?
