I'm still holding out hope that College Park can one day be finished; or at least the 2nd corner and tower portion.

Btw since nobody yet posted a picture of nakheel tower here you go (mods - I already voted). In my opinion it wasn't the prettiest tower in the world but it's share size (not just height) was immense. The same goes for the complexity of its structure. Imo this could have been the first tower that could really fit in the coruscant. Even though kingdom tower is more elegant and similar in height it really isn't even close to impress me as nakheel tower did. And to think such a building was u/c once...

(Nevertheless, Hotel Attraction was build in the 'Parallel Universe' in Fringe LOL:
)

* Chicago Spire in Chicago by Santiago Calatrava (which is not being built by now)
