All that is physically possible, provided there is the political will, of which unfortunately there is none whatsoever.

One potential problem is that the part of the penisular west of the station isn't very accessible as the road tunnel come up to the surface east of there, well all I say is for goodness sake open up the 'sightseeing tunnel' to free public use and restore the ferry.
Doubt it. The moment they build an indoor shopping mall, it's going to do everything to draw people in and keep them inside.

Having shops and especially eateries at ground floor opening onto the streets do also draw customers into the mall who otherwise wouldn't be drawn.

But IFC is not designed to be like that. Do any of the stores on the sides open along the street? Even the Apple store is sunk underground, drawing people in, not keeping them outside.

True. It's all in the mindset of the decision makers really.

Yesterday i visited Lujiazui i found that the two ugly HSBC logos on top of the first IFC was removed, hopefully they have realised how much the white background in the logo ruins the tower.

Also there are many ropes hanging down from the towers to the podium, if you look carefully at the last picture, you can see the lines in between the towers, what are they for?

I hope they replace the HSBC sign with one without the white background. Anyone know the tenant of the other tower?

They already took out the logo and the building has been opened for a few months only?

Well, the snow is causing havoc at the airports and impacting Spring Festival train travel. It's not a good time to try to get in.

Indeed...
And I'm pretty sure they are going to add another same logo to the north tower.

I want an integrated HSBC and Rits-Carlton logo, if they can do it beautifully..

But I think they may put an "IFC" logo??
