The International Commerce Centre is a 118-storey skyscraper in West Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was completed in 2010, and is presently the tallest building in Hong Kong. The International Commerce Centre building measures 484 meters (1,588 feet) from ground to roof top, giving it the third highest roof in the world after Burj Khalifa and the Shanghai World Financial Center.

The formal name for International Commerce Centre is Union Square Phase 7. Originally, the building was proposed to be even taller. Originally called Kowloon Station Phase 7, it was designed to be 574 meters (1,883 feet) tall, on 102 storeys. However, it was scaled back when local regulations prohibit buildings to be taller than the surrounding mountains.

The International Commerce Centre is 75 meters (246 feet) taller than the second tallest building in Hong Kong, International Finance Centre Tower 2.

The anchor tenant of the International Commerce Centre is the five-star Ritz-Carlton Hotel, which relocates from Central to Kowloon. The hotel lobby will be 425 meters (1,394 feet) above ground, making it the world's highest hotel surpassing the Park Hyatt in the Shanghai World Financial Center.
