Nope... the "" was for Ribarca's photo

There is a change to see few interior photos from ICC tower? Not from the lobby as allready seen, but from the other interior areas, floors (complete)...

Your latest photo is out of this world Ribarca - possibly the finest Honkers photo I have seen on these forums.

Ribarca, that photo looks to be taken way north of Mong Kok (judging by the position of Langham Place)...Sham Shui Po area?

Either way - simply brilliant...thank you for sharing...it has captured the magic of this wonderful city and its 'can do' spirit perfectly.

keep up the awesome work.

The thing I love most about that pic is the mass of short buildings in Sham Shui Po, eventually leading up to the mass of skyscrapers that is West Kowloon and Hong Kong.

I agree with Langur... one of the best pics I've ever seen on this forum.

1/3 has been in use for a long time now.

I think the 2nd 1/3 has opened recently or will open very soon.

The last bit (hotel and stuff) will open at the official opening somewhere in 2010, something like june i think


EDIT: THIS WAS MY 1500 POST

A friend of mine works in the building for some time. It must be odd to work in a building that they are still working on. How does that work in terms of safety?

Hey Ribarca, I was checking out the pictures you have up on flickr. Great stuff, I love it. I think your camera's date is off by one year though.

The building is being phased in gradually. Work on the bottom floors is done and the tenants have moved in. Don't think they'll see construction around them at all. The top floors are still being worked on, so the construction crews would hover around there. Don't think it'll pose a safety issue, although I don't think the leisure facilities around the building or the sidewalks are fully open yet.

now the cladding is nearly taken over the tower, the shape looks more like a long oval.
