Progress

The progress being made on this building is fantastic. The design is so clean and modern, yet strangely retro, and I think that that is great. Thanks to all the users who are keeping the SSC community up to date on this construction project. What would we do without you? The answer: not much.

I think the ICC is situated in one of the best developments in Hong Kong. The Union Square area has some of the best buildings. Like:

The ICC (Far Left), The Sorrento (2nd from Left), The HarbourSide (3rd), The Arch (Far Right)


The ICC just adds more beauty to an already excellent area!

ICC - Definatley! Masterpice and instant classic.
Sorrento - Just a standard HK residental tower. Not that bad but nothing good either.
The HarbourSide - Sometimes it looks good but most of the time not. Elevation is ****ed up.
The Arch - Sorry but it one of the worst skyscrapers ever!

The Cullian towers are great though. Sad that the whole complex does not stand up to ICC and Cullian's class.
