That's because it's an awful render! Everything looks strange, just look at the BoC! The skyline image is completely distorted for some reason

Perhaps the IFC was blocked in the photo they had, or not even built yet, so the art people just quickly stretched the ICC up. "No one will notice the difference"

These pictures of the tower and the lobby are incredible. The West is being well and truly surpassed....

i think the core reached the top but the floor plates have to catch up so were looking a top out by the end of the month.

I wouldn't say almost, there's still quite a lot to go.

or copyright issues... even when it was not completed, I'm sure there where a lot of night renders of 2IFC

P.S.
I see somme towers have even other cities "behind" in the renders... (they could use a photo if they are to lazzy to render all)

An advantage of the design of ICC is that we would know if its T/O or not, by looking at whats at top. Scaffolding? No. Glass? Yes.

In the case of the Burj Dubai, we don't know if its T/O or not, since its a spire and we can't measure it on our monitor.

Same thing goes with the IFC. Fins were stuck to the top before the top floors were clad. I think it will happen the same to ICC.
