The main drawback is that U.S. look so isolated, they must "plant" very soon several 200-300m towes and dozens of 100-200m ones around, to give the area somme "weight"

The buildings are not bad in design, but the cladding is very unfortunate...

just inagine The Arch with better cladding:

I've been staying in the harbourside from 19 - 24 nov and I really like the whole cluster around Union Square. The Square is really nice wth a lot of restaurants and at night the buildings look nothing less than wonderfull, with the ICC towering over the others.

i love ICC!
the buildings around it aren't that special, but they really fit in i think.
They all are verry Hong Kong-ish :p

I've read somewhere that the ICC will have an observation floor..
Is that true? And does anyone know when it will open?
