Cool But Strange

It feels strange that the tallest building in Hong Kong isn't already in Hong Kong Island but in Kowloon's Tsim Sha Tsui District.

The architecture looks very oldschool on this building. It's a little plain, but the overall effect on the skyline is pretty significant.

The crane's off. The finished exterior looks great, better than the renderings I think.

It was this tower that actually made me fall in love with Hong Kong. I really can't wait until the day that I can visit!

Is it complete yet? I'm confused as CTBUH has a downloadable poster showing it at number 4 in world's tallest (height to architectural top that is) although it hasn't made it into their separate list of tallest buildings.

How come this tower is still not included on Emporis' 200 tallest buildings list?

I was going to say that it's still U/C but then I read this.

This listing is verified and updated continuously and includes high-rise buildings which have been topped out, including those still under construction or on hold.

Oops.. especially since they already list it as completed.

A mistake is easily made, they will find out soon enough anyway.
