maybe HK should build skyscrapers on these hills, only if ICC was built up on this hill.

From wikipedia, tonight (greek time):
Quote:
International Commerce Centre(ICC Tower) is a 118 story, 484 m (1,587.9 ft.) skyscraper under construction in West Kowloon, Hong Kong...
Do you meant that?
BTW status in wikipedia is under construction

It's simply stating what it will be, not what it actually is now..
'ICC is a 118 story, 484m skyscraper UNDER CONSTRUCTION in West Kowloon..'
It could say this when it was only a couple of floors high and it'd still be an accurate statement.

Fair point Culwulla, I just mean that by saying 'currently construction' and giving it's finished height, that doesn't mean that they're saying it's reached that height, it's just saying that it will be that height (give or take a metre!). Do you see what I'm saying?

from shindlers lift site-
The ICC is a project of superlatives. One of the four tallest structures in the world; it will eventually contain 83 elevators and 41 escalators. Taken together, its elevator shafts will stretch more than 14 kilometres, and the double-decks speeding up and down the tower will reach velocities of 9 m/s.

Unusually for a skyscraper, the ICC has a flat top, which means elevators will literally reach the roof. The longest run for a double-deck elevator will be an impressive 396m, but one service/fire-fighter elevator will have a staggering 474m run – almost the entire height of the vast tower, which stretches to 483m, with 118 floors.
