Guess it will be better to wait for 500m and then change the title

I don't think they will change the height. Hong Kong has rules that prohibits buildings from being taller than the hills, if I remember correctly. That was the limiting factor with this building I think.

ICC has its own construction schedule.

The restriction only applies on Hong Kong Island. Therefore it doesn't apply to ICC in Kowloon.

You must be kidding!?

Is this a slowness contest? I thought these towers cost a lot of money, obviously the investors of that tower are very patient to see some money back in their pockets.

I'm disappointed at, but respect, how they're doing it... It's too long of a wait!

OK. Thanks for the explanation. I'm a bit surprised that Hong Kong hasn't built a 600+m yet in that case.

The ICC is almost as slow in going as the Freedom Tower, well not that slow.

2010 was always going to be the completion year. It will top out b4 then, but it means internally as well. Don't forget we are talking about a huge 118 floor mass.
