Actually near ICC they are talking about another supertall of similar height for the high speed rail terminal. Also, in Tsim Sha Tsui there's a 96-storey plan that's already been approved.

It's proposed to be built right next to the New World Centre (near Intercontinental Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui) on the waterfront. I don't like the idea personally, think they should leave the water front (especially TST as viewed from Central) mostly clear of skyscrapers.

That would completely ruin 'The Gateway' effect.

Personally I think the "Gateway" vision is a cheap one anyway so that would not bother me to much.

check out this book (it can be found around hk in design bookshops)

http://www.chineseupress.com/asp/e_B...ID=2509&Lang=E

In here you can see a masterplan proposal TFP architects did for the site next door to union square, including the high speed rail terminus. interesting stuff. not sure exactly when it was done but it doesn't show anything of ICC height.

Also, with regards to the tower on the TST waterfront, the end wing of the new world centre has been fully vacated and scaffolding is rising around it. guess it'll be coming down soon.

Looks fine to me in that picture above.

yah i don't care about the gateway either, as long as it brings us more supertalls in Hong Kong.
