The W pool may be higher up, but there are better infinity pools - ones that really stretch right into the sea (W pool's height is probably why it doesn't).

I wonder what the ICC pool will be like? I do remember one floor being dedicated to a pool.

Maybe it's a 'her', so 'she' doesn't get it. Still, it's obvious.
Are you talking about the girls? What the **** does that have to do with anything?

Yes I am. Well, now that you've understood stage 1, time to move you on to stage 2 - the importance of girls.

I was under the impression that the pool is on the roof. I remember seeing the building plan a while back. I Must mean that the cooling units are on the mechanical floors and not the roof.

The water resevoir must be huge at the top floors if there is a pool. I also glimsed the building plans as well but no recollection of all the details.

That Jumbo pic from a plane, shows all HK supertalls in one pic

The extra-large photo posted by ruip3dr0silva -- it shows all of the HK supertalls in a single photo. Except the one in Tsuen Wan.

In Kowloon, we have
* ICC
* The one in Yau Ma Tei
* The one at Hung Hom ferry
* That new hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui
* And those giant apartment towers in To Kwa Wan

In Central/Admiralty, we have
* Central Plaza
* 2IFC
* Bank of China
* Cheung Kong Centre
* Hong Kong Bank
* Lippo Centre
* Connaught Centre
* That brown one by Connaught Centre

In Wan Chai, we have
* The Centre
* Hopewell Centre

In Quarry Bay we have that new one.

Has anyone ever seen a photo with almost all of HK's tallest buildings all in one frame?

All of Hong Kong's supertalls - tallest 8 (i.e., over 300m)? Yes - in this thread actually a few times.
