Great shot. I know that spot where it's taken from. Went there once and there were about 10 people taking pictures. If the sky is clear I might give it a try as well.

Allthough its a little bit smaller than the SWFC (only 9m what is nothing) i thinik this one is alot more impressive than the SWFC! Since this one don't loose so much mass as it gets up. But on the other hand, the SWFC has it's unique hole on the top of the tower.....mhhhh congratulation for those very iconic and beautiful landamarks HK and Shanghai.

And the twin ICC would be a bad idea because only ICC and 2IFC represents the gates of HK. But the appearance would be brilliant.

TO means any part of the building reaching the highest structural height. In this case I think the glass around the perimeter have to reach its top to TO.

^too high for what? to look over? its a 30ft glazed wall to encase the plantroof.
It will hide the LMR and BMU.
i think T/O will be when the LMR /plant will be built, which is 6m high above roof top, thus 480m.
