WOW, never imagined that the sky in my home city is THAT awesome. Is it purely natural or because of light pollution?

BTW, ICC tower looks awesome with the rest of the Hong Kong Island skyline from the Eastern Corridor Vantage point (of course, driving toward causeway bay direction). I hope there is a promade there sometime so we could sit down and relax there

Yes, it is built. Physically there, but not yet operational. It is finishing up with road surface and other road features. Scheduled to be opened end of this year.

Here is the project thread:
