Why so? Hong Kong airport is not so far away from the downtown but there are much taller towers.

it is about the flight path, not the distance, hong kong has mountains on the side bordering china, so the flight paths do have to come from the water side anyways, which makes them not disturb the potential of a skyline i guess.

Same regulations in Amsterdam too, although the max height for some areas over there does not even exceed a 100 meters

One of the worlds greatest skylines gets a new tallest and nobody is really talking about it.

I was in November in Singapore. When i saw the render at the contruction site i was: WTF? A new tallest? Haven`t seen anything on SSC.

I like the observation deck of that tower. It will 100m higher, than on the other buildings and you will have a great view on the harbour.

Fast progress as ever in Singapore!

V interested in this project - having stayed at Amara hotel before and will be staying at Carlton City hotel for a week late Dec - I know the area well.

What impact will this have on Tanjong Pagar station? I'm guessing some of the walkways to it (from TP Rd) through open grassy areas have now gone?

Took this today from Duxton
