Hong Kong - International Commerce Centre

The International Commerce Centre is Hong Kong's tallest building with 482m height though construction has not completely been finished at the time the shot was taken. This tower does form a "gateway" for Victoria Harbour with Two International Finance Centre (2IFC) at the opposite side of the harbour. It's not yet as impressive illuminated as 2IFC.


Architects: Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates PC; Wong & Ouyang (HK) Ltd.


Info: The final design of this tower was made in 2001 after more than four design proposal changes. The original World's Tallest design (574m with a pyramidal top) was changed, and the new design is by KPF.


A 7-star hotel with 300 rooms will be located near the top portion of the tower on 13 floors. It will also include convention and conference facilities. The 7-star hotel will be the highest elevated hotel in the world, surpassing the Hyatt in Shanghai's Jin Mao Tower.
