Welcome To The International Commerce Centre For A Thrill Even If You Are Phobic Of The Number Four
The International Commerce Centre (ICC) is the tallest building that Hong Kong has. The ICC welcomes everyone to Hong Kong from its unique position at the western shore of the Victoria Harbor. Almost all the 118 floors in the building are devoted to the working of offices, but there are also quite a few restaurants in the building, and there is also the Hong Kong Hotel and the Ritz-Carlton hotel to cater to the culinary needs of the residents and visitors. The swimming-pool in the ICC holds the record of being the highest one in the whole world.
There are two facades serving the building as hosts for some dazzling light and sound shows. These shows are organized twice every night. Guests and inmates can get a whiff of fresh air and a vision of the whole city from the observatory, Sky100. from the 100th floor of the building, you get a bird’s eye view of Hong Kong. The building was developed by MTR Corporation Limited and Sun Hung Kai Properties. It saw to a phased completion between 2007 and 2010. It was thrown open to the public in 2011.
The ICC has 108 floors soaring to the horizon, while four are plummeted to hit the centre of the earth. Considering the phobia that residents in Hong Kong have to te number '4', quite a few floors like 4th, 14th, 24th, and son on have been left out of the count. So, the building graduates to 118 floors. The ICC is well-connected to the city with public transport.
