Nice start! Lighting is going to be important on judging the final outcome of this tower as a part of the skyline.

Send me a message with your mail and I will send a version to you!

Two morning images (way too early) well before sunrise. One calm morning and the other a very stormy one.

I hope they town down the brightness of the lights on top. It's overly bright now. And that's not a good thing for a long exposure night photo...

Calm morning.

^ Amazing photos as always Barca. I can't wait for an evening version with all the Hong Kong Island towers lit up as well as ICC on the Kowloon side.

I have a question for the in-the-know Hong Kong forumers. How many floors does ICC actually have? We all know that floors with a 4 in them are missed out in Hong Kong, so 118 floors is not correct. Is Emporis correct to list the tower as having 108 floors above ground?

I know this question has been posed before, but I've never seen an authoritative answer. Please enlighten me.

Re Langur: I think it's 106 floors. My guess is that every floor number with a number 4 is skipped (not including those that are in the forties, save forty four). 13 is also skipped in practice.

Therefore, the floors skipped are 4, 13, 14, 24, 34, 44, 54, 64, 74, 84, 94, 104, 114, which makes it around 105 floors. (I might be wrong with one of them, because sources state that the real amount the floors is 106.)

Hi all.

I haven't posted in here much but I've been checking this thread regularly. This is a great project that really turned out looking fantastic.

Hi guys.
There are 108 levels with 4 lower levels.

Yep. Yesterday from Braemar hill (I will post some images later) I saw the lights effects for the first time. A bit like a waterfall with the lights going on and off. I still feel the lights are too bright tough.
