I don't mind fat buildings, I just don't like the cladding on those buildings.

You can throw there Hanoi Road Project too, but is far from ICC.

well i mean its not the worst thing ever, I just don't think its a great complement being that close to ICC. Seems a little mismatched.

The Cullinan and Harbourside/The Arch should be swapped around.

And Sorrento got rid of altogether.

Mind, the whole ensemble (including Sorrento) looks great (as a lit up silhouette) from areas like Braemar Hill and Lei Yue Mun and Devil's Peak.

IMO, only phrase 6 and 7 suits me. The others are designed too simple and too colourful!When commies boom up in central kowloon, imagine what would the arch and harborside look like......

It is (from ZZ-II diagrams) and would be great! Imagine the view (examble) from hotel-room in 113 floor

There's no such thing as a 6 star hotel. People only rate them up to 5 stars. 6 and 7 star are just marketing terms to make people think they are somehow even better.

Any old 5 star hotel can claim to be 6, 7 or even 22 stars.

I see. No wonder I hear people say that the hotel in Burj Al Arab has 7 stars......

Correct.

On top of this, there is no 'one' standardised rating system.
