ICC is an exciting development for Kowloon; it marks a belated expansion of the CBD beyond Central and Admiralty, and HK Island as a whole too. Kowloon Bay is also beginning to regenerate. It took Kowloon 11 years after the airport move to build something taller than HK Island.

It's also Kowloon's first 300+m building. Even Tsuen Wan beat it with the Nina Tower.

That's a public swimming pool...

Anyway, we're almost there!!!!! I love how the way the cladding at each corner reflects the other side, resulting in these crosses in between! Makes it look like it's somehow hollow or something... just like BOC at night...

You have so many good photographers over there. I wish the big projects in China mainland were covered with high quality regular updates like this.

I think there should be a lot of coverage, but probably buried in a Chinese-only forum somewhere awaiting to be discovered.

Yeah, when I took the shot, I thought - hey Hanoi looks half decent at night - it's only saving grace - sigh.

Looking forward to seeing ICC all lit up though. West Kowloon is far too dark!

Yeah, that's the first time I've seen 'Hanoi Road' lit up from that side. It looks fantastic, what a great night time addition to the Kowloon skyline!

ICC looks sooo impressive in that last picture, like some giant fortress or something. Almost sinster. Great composition of heights there with the other Union Sq buildings and 1 Peking Rd. Plus those clouds behind are fantastic.

WOW! that really makes me smile. It makes me real sad I didn'[t go back this year.

By the way, how much taller is the ICC than the IFC. Its bound to start balancing the crazy skyline of HK island
