Won't be long before Dubai and some other places are using such a show.

But you can't have what nature already has...mountains

Those aerial pictures really show how big ICC is.

Everything around it - Victoria Towers, Harbourside, Sorrento, Arch, Cullinan Towers, Hanoi Road...is DWARFED LIKE A MOFO.

It's really one of those towers you can see from anywhere. Almost like the peak!

Great updates!

I didn't realize that Hong Kong have a lot of cookie cutter skyscrapers near ICC... It is starting to ruin Hong Kong skyline! I hope they will stop building cookie cutter skyscrapers and start to build real skyscrapers like ICC and older Hong Kong skyline (where Bank of China Tower is at).

Hong Kong is 'cookie-cutter' skyscrapers, now way that they are going to stop building them. Buildings like the ICC and the BOC are just a bonus.

ive tried so hard to get used to this building but every time i look at it, my view doesn't change. i just don't really like it that much. i think its the way the sides taper off at the bottom. the shape of the building itself almost looks distorted, not enough to be aesthetically pleasing or artistic, but rather like a design flaw/mistake. please don't bombard me with rude comments like 'i don't know what im talking about' or i 'must be a dubai enthusiast' or any crap like that. i am entitled to my own opinion. however i congratulate hong kong and its construction of a super tall and am happy for everyone who considers the ICC a gem. who knows, maybe my perspective will change once it is completed.
