International Commerce Centre continues to drive popular demand

30 March 2009

International Commerce Centre (ICC), Sun Hung Kai Properties' newest iconic superstructure, continues to drive demand and interest from international corporations.

The construction of the 118th floor is now underway, making the prestigious project the tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong’s skyline, at a current height of nearly 490 metres. The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong will occupy the 102nd to the 118th floor at the top, making it the tallest hotel in Asia.

Forming the "Harbour Gateway" together with Two IFC, ICC will have more in store for its tenants and the public than the typical commercial tower complex. Apart from The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong, the 118-storey landmark will also feature a private Tenants' Club and a brand-new tourist and cultural spot – the Observation Deck situated on the 100/F upon its completion.

ICC has been met with overwhelmingly enthusiastic responses from potential tenants since it was offered for lease. At present, about 90% of the total gross floor space has already been committed. Standing at a staggering 490m when fully completed, ICC is already the world's third-tallest and the tallest building in Hong Kong.

Following announcements of leading financial institutions such as Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse, Sun Hung Kai Properties has also released a list of new tenants, which include ABN AMRO, China Haidian, EFG Bank, SNP Vite and Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange (formerly called Titan Resources). All of these tenants have already started their operation fully at ICC. Deutsche Bank, another anchor tenant of ICC, will also move in the mega-tower in phases.

Part of the mixed-use complex at Kowloon Station, ICC embodies exceptional building and infrastructure specifications, management services and on-site hotel and accommodation in one single convenient package. Together with Hong Kong's largest shopping mall Elements with its wide ranging catering, shopping and entertainment facilities, guests and tenants at ICC can experience the ultimate luxury at their fingertips.

ICC tower's completion is expected in 2010.

I still find it amazing how those 8 super columns of the tower slightly bends inward toward the top at the precise angle.

Wonder how much is it gonna be for the observation desk...
Both Rockefeller Center and Empire State are US$20.
I guess it probably will be something HK$100-$150.

By looking out from my window, it seems like they are removing one of the two cranes up there.

View from the Excelsior is top notch - cos you can see Wan Chai-Central too.

ToTTs is a great place to dine and drink with a view, and unlike at R66 in the Hopewell Centre, the food is actually good! (albeit expensive)

This building should be contender for the interior design of the year...
