when I was there in April the main entrance was closed (course of heave lifting over it I think, looked really temporary) .. then people just used the underground entrance from the shopping mall / MRT Station..

one guy and one fence.. so really temporary.

I think that has been there for a while, when I was there in March taking pictures, i was shooed away by a security guard right there. You have to go in through the main entrance under road, which is like in a mall.

That happened to me last summer, but I spoke English to them deliberately and they didn't know what to do, so I just continued on shooting the pics... lol

Some guards (non-chinese) don't seem to know english very well.

Incredible collection of photos The B/W shot from the restaurant is so cool! Love the first shots from the base of the tower... the way it flows outwards is wonderfully done.

When proposed this was like the WTB but now it's just a mid raise compared to the other projects being constructed. Still an amazing structure none the less.

Amazing!!! I hope someday developers will build more taller towers and few new supertalls near ICC to help balance Hong Kong skyline better. All neat towers are on other side of the bay. Only one neat tower (ICC) on other side of the bay. That side of bay skyline need big improvement.

Better than sex. They need to put another Supertall nearby imo. Probably a 500m or 600m. That will make Hong Kong a pure orgy!
