most european cities are small by population, yet quite spread out. Cities are wide, not as compromised as asian cities.

I think the main reason is that european cities are old and most attempts to build tall in europe are bashed down just because the rest of the city doesn't like to feel inferior by having a shadow cast onto them. I've heard the same thing too many times. Pluss alot of old fashionned people don't like the modern style. I hope things change by next generation once we get rid of the old tarts running things now.

The actual financial crisis in Europe is the reason why we aren't actually building supertalls, but it doesn't explain the historical reasons for such a lack of buildings higher than 300m, West of Moscow.
If you look at, the mostpart of city centers in EU is made of ancient cores, therefore is likely right who says that the cultural and historical background makes Europeans to think a supertall might be in a too jarring contrast with the ancien EU city cores.
Anyway, an interesting issue which would be worth to be studied in deep.

It's my understanding that Parisians flipped after the Eiffel Tower was proposed and built.

Your explanation is the most plausible one. I think the historic look of European cities is appealing to many people.

There are many modern buildings in Europe. Most of the world's finest architects are european, working and building in Europe. Bannor you seem to have a lack of understanding at the difference between modern and tall. The centres of many European cities are just unsuitable for many reasons for supertall structures although many have and continue to build high rises that fit in more asthetically to thier surroundings.

ZZ-II, the following four links confirm the height of all three towers are over 300m. However, they are at a site-prep stage and the exact height hasn't been released yet.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...3&postcount=71

http://www.lda-design.co.uk/2012/07/...luxury-scheme/


Regarding approved supertalls, SSC-India moderators don't permit creation of a thread until the supertall reaches the site-prep stage.
However, I'll provide you all the info available regarding them.

Wikipedia as Source for the other towers is not enough unfortunately
