Sky 100's website says they're ready to open at the end of 2010.

Ritz Carlton's website says their hotel will open in March 2011.

Wasn't the Ritz Carlton originally scheduled to open in (around) March 2010?

Can SOMEONE please sort it out! It's ruining the photos =P
The smog is here to stay until June or so next year when we get Summer winds from the South. I compared with photos from last year and its worse once again. The sky is never blue, it's grey. On many days you can't even see Kowloon from Hong Kong.

On the Ritz. I thought it was always planned to open in December.

Cool shots!

An image from the whole cluster around ICC. The area under development for the Express rail link is huge.

For some reason the lights go off very early right after it gets dark.

^ Great. I think they're still testing the lights. I see them flicker them on and off quite continuously.
