    Default Union Square, Hong Kong

    In my opinion, that building would work very well at Ground Zero.

    Ooooh, if only...

    Yes.
    It has class, distinction.
    And a hollow structure at the top.
    Add a spire and make room for some greenery, and you get an acceptable version of Libeskind's Garden Tower.

    Ugh, no. Refined corporate architecture is good for Hong Kong.

    Only for HK ?
    I'm thinking of the post-war addition to the Rockefeller Center. The WFC. And many others.

    Most of them mediocre.

    Many others meant AOL-TW.
    When big corporations pay the rents, what do you expect ?

    In my opinion if you added an antenna to the top of this building it would look like the proposed New York Times Tower.

    The light beam plays that role at night.
    The other difference is the height, obviously.

    Light beams aren't very visible, unless it is a cloudy or a foggy day. *As an example, take a look at the Westin at Times Square. *It's widely touted beam is barely there on most days.

    I can assure you that the HK harbour is cloudy or foggy most of the time. Humidity is constantly at a high level and at sunset, the combination of light and haze make skyline amazing.

    There's already a powerful light beam on 1IFC... really spectacular.
    I have the feeling that one was a test before those of 2IFC and US.

    It's actually underconstruction, but it's constantly been put on hold, but it is once again u/c. Two More pictures at http://www.skyscrapers.com/english/f...1555&aid=8.

    I don't think it's ever been on hold.
    Works on the foundations will last another 6 months.
