Great tower, thanks for the update! The approved look a like in Rotterdam (Coolsingeltoren, 187 meters) has now a chance to be cancelled... too bad.

I just realized it's actually more beautiful than the rendering. Better than I expected, another great icon building for Hong Kong.

It is an attractive building in its own right, but it's not on Hong Kongs "A-list."

I haven't seen these before. Good Lord that's beautiful.

I know this thread is about the AIG tower but the Bank of China stands out great at night, and the AIG Tower shimmers beautifully in the day. I love it and can't wait to see more pics, upclose pictures would be nice.

Amazing pictures. Is the AIG Tower finished now? It looks like it pretty much is.

I didn't take those pictures.
They were taken by Bush from hk-place.com
I think there was an exhibition at the 71st floor during the Chinese new year, so the 71st floor was exclusively open to public only for the exhibition.
