bottom half of ICC looks a lot like the bottom half of 2IFC at night.

I don't really agree, IFC stands there with a bland base, while ICC stands with a podium, and a base like a split out flower. (just look at the dragon tail)

But unless you mean the floors above the base, they are quite similar

obviously they're totally different, but I was comparing their 2 visible vertical lines running down the 4 sides of the tower. Thats all.

I think it's at 474m/1,555ft from the last photos we've seen as of March 1. Should be very close to top-out.
