hells donkeys, what a cracking set of photos. Honkers has always been a photographic nirvana, but the moody skies and towering ICC are adding to this is an way I've not seen before. Beautiful.

The view is getting better by the minute, HK can really challenge Paris to ' the city of love' now.

ICC is turning into the BIG gem we were all hoping for! Can't wait till it's finished. Will be in HK for a couple of weeks from next week so will be taking lots of piccies. Hopefully the cladding will be near complete by then.

Random thought: Wouldn't HK make the best setting for GTAV!? Mountains, sea, bridges, gangs, Wanchai/Mong Kok (red light)!

Read in the news that the parcel of land to the right of Union Square is going to support 4 office towers. No mention on height except that they need to adhere to a wind corridor clause of some sort... Wonder when we'll see some renders... They really need to fill that gap... Hopefully with something shiny!

Yeah, you are quite correct. HK is shaping up to become the best skyline in the world. The light show at night time is extremely breath taking, something that only Hong Kong can offer to the world
