International Finance Centre
International Finance Centre Review
One building towers above the rest of Central's skyline: Two IFC, or the second tower of the International Finance Centre. The tall, tapering structure has been compared to at least one—unprintable—thing and is topped with a clawlike structure straight out of Thundercats. Designed by Argentine architect Cesar Pelli (of London's Canary Wharf fame), its 88 floors top a whopping 1,362 feet. Opposite stands its dinky little brother, the 38-floor One IFC. The massive IFC Mall stretches between the two, and Hong Kong Station is underneath. If you wish to see the breathtaking views from Two IFC, you can visit the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (55/F, Two IFC 2878–1111 www.info.gov.hk/hkma). While there, take a quick look at exhibits tracing the history of banking in Hong Kong. Upon arrival, you may need to register your passport with the concierge.
