According to the official press release from the developer SHKP,the height of the US7 tower
http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=12
should be 1574 ft not 1555 ft.

They're talking about a different building, but they shouldn't have used that picture because it does look like US7.

They're talking about a different building,

So why does the photo have the rest of the Union Square project in it?

It's the same.

''The 1,574-foot-tall Ritz-Carlton will soar above the city’s skyline and harbour, becoming a landmark structure from its strategic location above Kowloon Station on the Hong Kong Airport Railway line.''

I don't mean to be rude Aboveday, but I think this matter has already been discussed and explained in a thread which you have knowledge of and participated in:

http://www.skyscraperpage.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=63567

However, if you want to obtain the correct height from the developer (as opposed to the pretend height), then please write to them and ask for the "top of structure elevation" and the "base elevation" as it is shown on the building plans (elevations). If the difference between these two points is in fact 1,575' then kindly forward this correspondence to an editor for review and confirmation.
