1927 Toronto Tower. I would have loved to see better drawings of this one.


Or this 1925 King and Yonge Tower, aslo from Canada but I don't know the city.


And a 1929 project to build a tower next to the Windsor station in Montreal.

Often due to lack of money. In some cases there were other great projects that were built instead.

This is a great thread !

Plans for the urban renewal of Trieste's old city by the fascist government. Actually the name for the project is sventramento which literally means disembowelment of the old city

About a third of the project was realized (the upper right of the first pic and the pics below)
