It looks like there are people working in the lower half of the building while the rest of it is still under construction!

Given the demand for office space in HK that wouldn't surprise me

So some people can think that opium and being controlled by a person, whose only aim exploitation, is better than being a part of their own people/country.

Learn some HISTORY.
Hey man, I'm not sure why u got so agitated with what I said. First of all, being a HK local, I think I'm well aware of my local history. I wouldn't like being controlled by other people. But the thing is it's because of British colonization that HK was not following the communist pathway for half a century after the war. I think HK would have been quite different if it has always been part of China.Anyway, that's my view, you can argue about it, but no view is wrong.

SNP Vite begins operations within International Commerce Centre



10 September 2008

SNP Vite Limited, one of Asia's foremost financial printing companies, began successfully operating its business on the 20th floor of International Commerce Centre (ICC) in June following a relocation from its Central offices. SNP Vite is one of a number of companies that have already moved into ICC with many more to follow over the coming months.

ICC's tenants represent a broad spectrum of industries highlighting its growing reputation as a major new centre for commerce in Hong Kong.

"We are pleased to have SNP Vite, as well as a number of other tenants, already successfully operating within ICC. This exceptional development offers excellent infrastructure and management services as well as a rare mix of office space, retail, hotel and luxury serviced accommodation which has enabled us to attract a varied portfolio of prestigious tenants," said Mr. Lo King Wai, General Manager of Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency.

"Our relocation was made very easy by the ICC team who did everything they could to accommodate all our requests. As a result, our move was very smooth, and with seamless business continuity. This was made easier by the attention to detail paid by Sun Hung Kai Properties while planning the building, the flexibility and understanding of the on-site team, and support by the technologically advanced infrastructure," said Christabel Lee, Managing Director of SNP Vite.

"ICC offers top quality office space in one of Hong Kong's most accessible locations, which made the choice to locate the headquarters of our thriving business here easy," added Christabel Lee.

SNP Vite joins ABN AMRO's new branch, China Haidian, EFG Bank and Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange (formerly called Titan Resources), who have all recently moved into ICC, and will be followed by Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley later this year and in 2009.

Located at Kowloon Station this 118 storey mixed-use development will be the third largest building in the world and offers approximately 2.5 million sq-ft of Grade A office space, providing much needed world class office facilities in the city. The mega-tower is expected to complete in 2010.
