A monster, just like the old WTC. If the new WTC ends up anything like this with regards to the massing I'll be more than satisfied.

That being said, Hong Kong always looks great. Definitely #1 on my list of places to visit in Asia when I have the money.

It's amazing how the cladding functions as a huge mirror. I will try to get some new shots from Olympic when the smog has blown over.

Fantastic looking building, amazing last few photos guys.

Got to be the world's greatest skyline, uncontested as a night skyline.

Can't wait to go back again and see this completed.

Yes, I noticed that right away. But I think it aso has to do with the position of the crane, that looks like a spire from that angle.

We need a new supertall. In terms of pictures winter is always bad in Hong Kong. Bad skies, sunset behind HK island and a blue hour that lasts 1 minute.
