I went to Hong Kong in March of 2006 and saw the ICC site. Pretty much everybody I asked back then had very little idea of what was being built over at the site, or even where the site was, because the building wasn't more than a few stories tall at that point. Now look at it! What a difference a year and a half makes!

I don't know why but i just love ICC. The design is simple and elegant, but really stunning... Just as its future height... Looking forward to see it finished.

I REMEMBER READING IN AN EARLIER POSTING THAT CONSTRUCTION WOULD SPEED UP
AFTER THE MECHANICAL FLOORS
I THINK 1 FLOOR EVERY 4 TO 5 DAYS WAS QUOTED
THIS WAS CLEARLY INCORRECT ON CURRENT PROGRESS

I have a night pic, but not a dusk pic, cuz the sun is angled so its hard to find a good vantage point (unless you really go looking, which i didn't)
