The quality of the glass and the awkwardness of the black horizontal bands are just barely flaws. This tower owns, haters gonna hate.

I love everything about the design of this tower. Would have been nice to see two of them in lower Manhattan.

i don't know if this question is appropriate for this thread but are there any towers in the works that would gracefully bring the bulk of this beast down a bit?

Actually ICC is surrounded by fairly tall buildings already (like 70+ floors).

You need to source your images, and Flickr is especially sensitive. See post : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/announ...p?f=652&a=1131

Contractors to plead guilty over lift shaft deaths
30 September 2010
The Standard

Three contractors charged over the lift shaft tragedy at the International Commerce Centre, in which six workers died, told a Kwun Tong court they will plead guilty.

The main contractor, Sanfield Building Contractors, and two subcontractors _ Well Achieve Construction and Wang Wai Construction Works _ originally faced a total of 81 summonses in connection with the deaths last September.

These include failing to identify hazardous conditions for persons working at a height in the construction site, failing to provide and maintain plant and work systems, and failing to provide necessary information, instruction, training and supervision for safety at work for those employed at industrial undertakings.

No plea was entered yesterday but the legal representatives of the companies indicated to Special Magistrate Debbie Ng Chung-yee that they would plead guilty to 49 charges.

The prosecution would then withdraw the remaining 32 charges.

The hearing was adjourned until November 4 for plea and sentence.

On September 13 last year, six workers aged between 34 and 47 died after their work platform collapsed and plunged 20 floors from the 30th floor in a lift shaft at the 118-story skyscraper, the territory's tallest building, in Austin Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Three of the victims were located only hours later as they were buried under a mountain of construction waste to a depth of six meters.

The developer of ICC, Sun Hung Kai Properties, promised to cover funeral expenses and provide for the education of the workers' children immediately after the accident.

About 80 firefighters and paramedics were involved in the search for the workers.
