The International Finance Centre (IFC) is a prominent mark on Hong Kong Island near Central Pier. It comprises two office skyscrapers, a large shopping mall and the Four Seasons Hotel. Tower 2 of the IFC is the tallest building in Hong Kong, and the third tallest building in all of China, but how long that will last is anyone's guess. The train to Hong Kong International Airport leaves from directly beneath the IFC, and passengers can check in their luggage here.
Statistics for the IFC are impressive. It was opened in 2003, built on reclaimed land as part of the development of the central station serving the new airport. The roof is nearly 407m above ground, and the antenna tops out at 416m. There are 88 floors which can accommodate almost 5,000 workers. The IFC has 62 elevators, of which 18 are high speed lifts. Building the IFC cause some controversy as the height of the building obscured views of Victoria Peak from some parts of Victoria Harbour.
