So, according to the diagram, the final height will be as high as the top of the cranes (currently)?

If so, I can definitely see how these last floor will dramatically improve the overall look of the building. It will look more slender and soaring than it does right now.

thanks skybean, the cladding is sky rocketing at a medium pace, but that's good. This tower will surely be rival of 2WFC on the other side of the river.

Hong Kong is just majestic! No other words can describe HK.

Everything in HK is just beauty.

And with the addition of the ICC, I hope that HK will be more awe-inspiring.

I'm pleased to hear that, waited long time to hear it.

So we have around 15 more floors to go then?
