That's actually incorrect.

In my opinion Hong Kong has the world's the best skyline at night and New York City has the world's best skyline during the day.

This is a very gorgeous looking building.

New hotel not for acrophobia suffers
16 October 2010
Coffs Coast Advocate

YOU wouldn't want to book into Hong Kong's new Ritz-Carlton hotel when it opens early next year and suddenly discover you suffer from acrophobia.

The hotel is being built within the top 102nd to 118th floors of the new International Commerce Centre in the Kowloon district and its 312 rooms will be the highest hotel rooms in the world at nearly 500 metres above the sea level of the nearby harbour.

All rooms will offer drop-dead views of the city and harbour, while a range of palatial suites will give guests in these access to a Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge with complimentary food and drinks 24-hours a day as they take-in the changing mood of their surrounds while day turns to night turns to day.

The hotel will have six dining venues including Asian, Italian and a tea lounge, while an alfresco rooftop bar 490 metres above the harbour promises the best 360-degree views of any bar in the world.

And for those not into views, there'll always be some shopping: the hotel will sit atop a one million square metre shopping mall within the International Commerce Centre

The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong opens in the first quarter of 2011.

from the last picture, it looks like the Glass on those black stripes is being replaced with a lighter color glass.

The black stripes are refuge floors, so there may not even be glass for those sections. That photo looks heavily photoshopped.
