We had talked these in this thread for a long time.
But here for your reference, 13 is the unlucky number for the West and 14 is the unlucky number for the Chinese.

After all, HK is where East meets West, we skip both for the good.

Imagine if Hong Kong were even more multicultural, you'd find yourself on the 349th floor even though you're only 80m above ground...

Does anyone know or have seen any construction documentaries on this tower?

I'd love to see one.

In some pictures, it looks like they are building another 2 IFC directly across from the real one.

Welcome to the forums the man from k-town. Kaiserslautern always reminds me of the joys (World cup: Aus 3 v Japan 1) and heartbreak (World cup: Aus 0 v Italy 1) of football
