Yea, sort of. It encompasses the whole "West Kowloon" complex. Not 'inside' the ICC.

That Merc is horrendous. Would be great without the glitter.

I agree, its HK at its gratuitous worst in my opinion. Luckily the buolding is the city at its best!

No thx, you are right but looked at from the front it's a flat building like any building. Next time I'll try more from a 90 degree angle. I got a new tilt (&shift) lens I'm testing out. Unfortunately it's hard to get a good view of the building from an angle. I deleted the 2nd. Will put it back later on.

From Ribarca's photo ICC tower looks indeed almost complete; do you know how many panes (cladding) left to put in?

The top is looking good. Kowloon Station is finally complete, but the station entrance still looks so modern. Remember how futuristic it looked in 1998 when there was nothing around it?!

It's sad that such a big construction accident had to mar the project. I hope this will lead to an improvement in supervision.
