Not in 10 years,,not in 50 years,have you ever been to Chicago matey????

That is not the best Chicago skyline pics ive seen,,times it by 5 that and that is Chicago's skyline,it's that good i rate it better than NY's.

Manchester will have it's own skyline, yeah i think it will have some great tower's in 10 years,nothing over 200m though,,but ey 4 or 5 150m+ tower's in that timescale would be great.

Im not one for comparing skyline's because every city as its own unique skyline, like Manchester will in 10 years time.

SMP,,,dont be cruel

Here's a true Chicago pic matey.


Yeah i think it will have a few more talls, nothing over 150m though,if Eastgate get's built, which i firmly believe, it will be Manchester's tallest for many many years.

Naaah - as everyone who has already seen this notorious picture knows, THIS is what Manchester will probably look like in 10 years time....

Yeah for some inexplicable reason Beetham isn't on there - even though I was probably the first person here to post up some exclusive about there being "a 48-50 storey mixed use glass tower proposal for the very bottom of Deansgate" some years ago - before the plans for Beetham were even released! Anyway - which tower do you mean when you mention 1HS? Can you describe it to me as I can't see a tall tower "slap bang" in the middle - there is one just to the right though - but that's an exaggerated Sunley/City Tower!

Highriser, I don't think that it will be that long before we break the 200m mark. Give it 5 years.

You know very well what he's talking about.
