That last picture posted by hkskyline is so skewed - the whole left side is fat.

The same photographer has another photo on his website (without the Kowloon side) where the HKI side appears as it should.

It just occurred to me that ICC and the Harbourside look like a sword and shield. This in addition to the Union Square complex as a whole appearing in those aerial pictures as the middle finger to Hong Kong Island, as previously discussed in this thread. Bad feng shui all around, lol.

Nice progress. It's going to feel a little strange when the cladding is completed because this tower has been under construction for years.

Hey, no little bubble showing where you were this time, whoami? Somewhere at the top, on the cranes maybe? No? You sure?

This tower seems to have been under construction forever. I can remember the proposal in 2001. I think the big circular hole was dug in like 2003 or something. Wow I was in college back then.

They built all (most) the rest of Union Square before starting work on this one - I think the work on this one properly started around late 2005/2006 - and even then the Cullinan Towers were being built simultaneously.
