My friend. If Warsaw got all the proposed tall skyscrapers past years, Warsaw would be the city with the tallest buildings in Europe by now.

It's not proposed it's UC but will be TO sometime this year, don't forget that st Petersburg is already building 400m+ in Warsaw not even has been proposed such a high rise forget building it.

Well, Russia has indeed the potential and money to do it, so it will for sure suceed. Warsaw will have to wait indeed, highest proposed until now was 280m. But there is potential. Next years the places on the Defilad Square (3rd biggest square in the world), next tot The Palace Of Culture and Science will be sold. There is a place for 300m-400m high towers. Even the city council made a possible visualization with towers of that height there. So I guess we are still in the run for the highest buildings in the European Union at least

It's too early to compare Ekaterinburg with Warsaw/
Only these buildings comprise the Ekaterinburg skyline now.. We are talking about the current skylines.
The quantitiy of u/c is small and the speed of the construction is so slow there/
And it's too late to compare too since while Ekaterinburg builds 1 skyscraper Warsaw gets several ones.

PS If we consider the cities often shown in this thread there are many forumers that would say Ekaterinburg is the last and nobody would say Warsaw is the last. On the other hand some people think Warsaw has the best skyline in Europe, nobody would say this about Ekaterinburg
PPS And yes, Ekaterinburg is to the East of the Ural mountains, so it is in Aisa. It has a European look, so Vladivostok and many other Russian cities have it there too.

I just don't get your point...
Moscow has one of the best clusters of skyscrapers in Europe but you have to admit that the construction of Moscow International Business Center started for real in ~2005... What I mean is that 10 years ago nobody would have picked Moscow for the Best European Skyline. Maybe within several years Yekaterinburg will have the same number of supertalls but now you're comparing a city with 2 completed skyscrapers and 2 T/O...to a city (of Warsaw) with ~20 buildings >100 m (which I personally believe is a minimum) built since 1950's... The tallest building in Warsaw is 237 m. There are also buildings U/C like Warsaw Spire (220 m), Złota 44 (192 m) or Cosmopolitan Twarda 2/4 (160 m). There are of course many proposed but since it's just a vision nobody here even talks about it. Why? Because nobody can post a picture of it as it doesn't exist...

PS. St Petersburg won't have the Best European Skyline with one building...even the tallest one in Europe.

There is some impression of a rather low skyline in Ekaterinburg but in terms of architecture it's rather similar to asia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ings_in_Warsaw

Actually if you go to wikipedia Warsaw has only 17 builings taller than 100m for example moscow has around 150 buildings that are 100m+, for warsaw to look good it requires some supertalls, some of them are from the soviet era, not a big difference from Yekatrinburg 5 built already some need to be TO yet like 3 to delivered this year , speaking of St Petersburg its 7+ buildings over 100m so its skyline should be just fine!

I could understand the tastes of almost all the forumers in this thread so far (understand even thinking in a different way) but I really can't understand how it is possible to like Ekaterinburg's skyline.. I really see nothing appealing.. It wouldn't even enter in my top 20 or top 30, I wouldn't even consider it so far. This time I am really surprised by the tastes of people..
