Lagos Tinubu Twin Towers

Tbite i like your idea, so i also tried to edit a Skyline. I always imagined how twintowers would finish the Lagos Island Skyline. Here it is.. its a bit bumbling and rough. call it a first try, next time i will do much better.. the reference objects are from Singapur.. hope you like it!

So have I. There was one proposed a couple of years ago, but it never saw the light of day, it was to be built in Tinubu sqaure

Your first try is much better than mine though, I transformed the buildings, but they lost focus

Arthabitat3, Not bad, but even then the skyline for the world´s seventh largest exporter of crude oil would still look wack! Have a look at cities like KL, Caracas, Jakarta, Jo´Burg....Lagos normally has to be in this category. I only hope and pray that Malaysians and Indonesians will help Nigeria to go for the skies! Lagos city skyline is not all representative of Nigeria´s might/potential

Tbite, you have taken an old picture of Libreville (80´s) and put a tower in it, it looks so much out of place. Libreville is a small capital and to my mind buildings should not exceed 20 floors otherwise it becomes distorted!

Well, there is should be enough space for highrises at some parts of the Lagos marina..

That Libreville Pic is quite funny,
I'll try edit Nairobi and see if I can make it a NewYork


There is indeed lots of space for More highrises on Lagos Island, perhaps with the LICBD Project, new buildings might be realised. What Nigeria needs, or what Lagos needs is transparency. New investors are coming into Nigeria, and most of them are planning permanent offices. Maybe if Power supply is improved, and crime is dealth with etc Maybe we might just see a boom.

That Pic which Arthabitat3 edited is quite nice, it looks like Jakarta 15 to 20 years ago.

Let's try and edit as many skylines across the continent as possible

Lagos really looks nice with the Emirates Towers.
Art Habitat you are already a PRO


Niamey looks nice, but It's just an Upsurge. There were no buildings to begin with.
