The road on the picture runs right through the parking. That's how I found it by accident.

I feel the last thing Hong Kong needs are supertalls. The skyline is perfect as it is.
The car park is going to be demolished to give way for the construction of the proposed underground Central Kowloon Route. The site will be one of the construction access for work down below ground.

In fact, the overpass is the only one that run through building in HK, too.

Cool, I wasn't aware of that route. It will be interesting to see how they will keep the road open. It's a major thoroughfare.

I can't wait to see the Masamichi Katayama-designed OZONE bar on the 118th floor! Wonderwall is my favourite interior design firm. It will be the coolest room in the city with the best views!

I can't wait for the hotel to open up as well and book a room on a nice summer day for some pics!

What I love about ICC and also IFC2 is that there are no gimmicks to make them taller on paper than they are (spires etc.). They are what they are right to the top.

Good point. It's long finished and in the polluted winters here we can't expect any good new pics. Even though I still have a lot of images to post from last summer myself.

I can't agree more that we should have a few more 300+ or even supertalls in Kowloon, but nowadays the entire Kowloon is subject to height restriction.

I always thought that ICC was the best building to replace old WTC, even more the current ones being constructed now. ICC seems like a modern version of the twins, because of sheer size, being both realy tall and wide makes the same imposing effect. Also the squared off shape helps a lot. Not to mention the night shots, it give a real ressemblance
