You know, it really saddens me when people say things like that. No one wanders into a New York or Chicago thread and says, "Wow, you don't see that in China!"

I tried my hand at a mega resolution pano. A "small version" here. Try to find the people on the hill and Disney land.

A picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case 3 words. Yes it's possible.

Anyway, I will miss the awesome Hong Kong shots in the Supertalls section when this is one is finished.

The building already has occupants. Hence why lower ICC has been well lit since much earlier in the year, and even last year.

Wow...never heard of that before. How is the occupant access to the building while it is still under construction?

The occupants are at the bottom of the building. Nothing hard to enter it then.

Im sure there are massive insurance issues but the client/developer can start to make money whilst the building is still progressing. Dont know if id like to do it though! Hard hats on!

I fully understand that....I am asking because of the usuall clutter at the base of any building under construction. Can someone take a pic or three of the building entrances by either car or foot? I'd sure like to see how this works with all the construction materials and such that usually lay at the base of a skyscraper in progress.

ah ic what u mean

the entrances are clear in all of the entrance pics ive seen so far. I think that there are certain times of the day where the new materials are lifted to the top. For example before or after the occupants go to work.

There is still the construction elevator on the outside of the building that goes to the top levels and the construction crane on the top as well.
