Yea it's the camera thing, just like the 2-IFC; if you use a poor quality, amateur digital camera to take a pic of 2-IFC during day time, it looks a bit shit.

im pretty sure the 490m height is its height above SEA LEVEL? thus grd floor=6m above harbour.= 484m above grd. im sure we worked this out last year? can someone confirm this?
this confusion with heights happens regualry with tall bldgs.

That might be the case, here in Birmingham, England we have a height above sea level of 120m (I think, I haven't been in Birmingham long), we're currenty the highest city in Britain too, the height limit for tall buildings was 242m max above sea level but that rules been broken.

Yep, that's right. The City's quite near the airport too which doesn't help and one our tallest proposed buildings at the time had to be shelved and reduced in height after 9/11, our planners are backward thinking politicians

Perhaps you should READ next time?

The 292 was a Birmingham figure, which at last look was about 7000 miles from Hong Kong.

Great update. The floorplates are catching up the the concrete settings. But it's pretty slow. Less than 10 concrete floor settings in 4 months.
