A building so tall anywhere would be welcomed so much and everyone would surely hope it would get built. But for this one, the total opposite. If this gets built ill feel so bad for the cambodians that might see that everyday.

A BBC News article on skyscraper construction in Cambodia: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12381142

Here's a relevant section:

Quote:
White elephants?

There have been dozens of other ambitions projects to raise the skyline of Phnom Penh.

Little more than two years ago there were plans to build as many as 50 tall buildings in and around the city. But progress has stalled on almost all of them.

Many were funded by South Korean developers. And when they took a major hit during the global financial crisis, they pulled the plugs on their Cambodian projects. All those proposed multi-storey towers are still just muddy holes in the ground.

Some are officially just suspended until the economic winds are blowing in the right direction. Others have been abandoned completely.

And the only skyscraper which did make it all the way to completion has hardly been an unqualified success. It may call itself "the first high-rise international office building in Cambodia" - but the Canadia Tower has struggled to find tenants.

Real estate agents have suggested there simply may not be enough demand.

All of which adds to the impression that skyscrapers in Phnom Penh would be nothing more than concrete-and-glass white elephants.

Maybe Cambodia should focus more on feeding its people and persecuting the Khmer Rouge than building giant condom-scrapers.

PHNOM PENH | The Diamond | 555m | 1820ft | Pro











PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — Impoverished Cambodia plans to build a 1,820-foot (555-meter) skyscraper, its prime minister said Wednesday, a feat that would give one of the region's least-developed capitals the tallest building in Asia.

Prime Minister Hun Sen said he had approved a master plan for the skyscraper, which would be located about half a mile (one kilometer) from the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh — a dusty city of colonial villas, slums and one standout skyscraper, the recently completed Canadia Tower that is about 377 feet (115 meters) high.

Hun Sen did not say when construction would start, how much it would cost or give any other details, except that it would be built by a Cambodian company, Overseas Cambodia Investment Corp., owned by tycoon Pung Khiav Se.

The company's project manager, Touch Samnang, said preliminary estimates suggest the building would cost $200 million, but the project was being studied by experts and government ministries. He said it would include a shopping mall, hotel, apartments and an entertainment center.

That figure is dwarfed by the sum for what is currently Asia's tallest building, the Taipei 101 in Taiwan. Rising 1,667 feet (508 meters), it cost about $1.6 billion. It had been the world's tallest since 2004 but was overtaken in January when Dubai unveiled the Burj Khalifa, which rises 2,717 feet (828 meters) from the desert.

1,820 feet makes it the tallest building in Asia? Really? Don't they know that the UAE and Saudi Arabia are both in Asia too, not to mention China. They should look up how many countries actually are in Asia. And what about Shanghai Tower, I thought 2,073 feet was taller than 1,820 feet. Has to be one of the dumbest lines I've seen in a while.

I was hoping the record for the 'ugliest building in the world' would never be broken again, but it seems I was wrong.

And the award for most *****-shaped skyscraper goes to....

C'mon Cambodia, focus on more basic stuff. This is fluff, and unattractive fluff at that.

On the renderings it looks a bit weird, but in reality it would turn out quite good i think .)

The second picture in the first post is an old design that's been posted here before. The other renders are a new design, and a much better one I might add, since it doesn't look as much as you-know-what anymore.

yeah now it looks like an observation tower and not like a monumental animals junk haha.
i think the world can never have enough observation towers like this, it gives cities without supertalls a pretty nice face and outline i think
