International Commerce Centre adalah gedung pencakar langit di Kowloon Barat, Hong Kong. ICC adalah bagian dari proyek Union Square yang dibangun di atas Stasuin Kowloon. Muali dibangun pada 2002 dan resmi dibuka pada 2010 dengan tinggi 484M. (Wikipedia).

The 490m International Commerce Centre, known locally as ICC, is the latest ‘super skyscraper’ to take the title of Hong Kong’s tallest building. Together with the city’s second-tallest building, Two IFC on the opposite shore, the imposing pair create the dramatic effect of a modern day Colossus of Rhodes at the western entrance of Victoria Harbour.

The building’s 118 floors are mostly devoted to office space, but there’s also a Ritz-Carlton hotel as well as restaurants and the sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck.

Two of the building’s giant façades serve as a more than 50,000 square-metre platform for a spectacular light and music show, which was recognized with a Guinness World Record for the largest light and sound show on a single building. This dazzling animation and sound effects show happens twice nightly, so keep an eye out!
