He is right Jakarta tower is on hold for (many) years with brakes for some construction and it was always planned to be completed at some constantly delayed date. I'm not surprised someone voted it to this competition.

I want to post for two non built skyscrapers:

1- Grand Scala resort at Ontiñena, Aragon, Spain.

It was a casino and leisure park designed in 2007 and never built.
Investors payed part of the ground but never bought it and the project is absolutely over.

This is the picture of central tower render



which can be seen here.

The casino and leisure park area would be 4,5 x 4,5 km. A huge extension in the middle of a desert but near a motorway and high speed lane.

According to that, forumer Vaujaus calculated that the tower diameter would be around 195.6 metres...

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=1905


There is one important thing to hint about it.
Grand Scala project was announced in SSC threads before than in media!!!!!. Several forumers took news about them and posted about it in this forum before newspapers and televisions could broadcast about it.



2- Digital Mile at Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain

According to a new refurbishemnt of the area around the railway and bus station it was planned to build several buildings and a skyscraper.
Nothing has been done. In fact in the opposite corner a new health centre (doctor's offices, health headquarter and emergency base) is under construction. But really much lower than a skyscraper.

This google picture is not new... but nothing has been changed since it was planned.
https://maps.google.es/?ll=41.658164...,72.13,,0,9.96

We can see in the render the Delicias railway station (which can be seen in the google maps image) but nothing about the skyscrapers. In fact, the one located in the middle of the image is being the new health center.
