Birmingham, here is one I really liked. What are the specs on this? There is another one I really like too, but it's just too hard to point out.

Holy image over load! 4-5 photos is about my limit before I start scrolling past the whole bloody lot. We have a 'City Compilations' thread people. This ain't the place to post a detailed inventory of what's going up in city 'X' or 'Y'.

What gets me is I don't even know what all I'm looking at. Is a particular building a 100-meter building or a 150-meter building or a 200-meter building or a 250-meter building? Is it under construction meaning definitely going to happen and become part of the skyline or is proposed and might happen? As I mentioned earlier, there is one in particular that I like, but it's too much effort to try to pull it out of all that.

Hi,

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?ms...39908,0.617294

Go to Canary Wharf area on the map and then click on each indicator which will show you details of the building and regarding with the question you posted earlier, that building is still in the planning progress and it will become the tallest (100%) residential skyscraper in Europe. Check the specs below.
  • Name: South Quay Plaza
  • Location: Canary Wharf, London
  • Status: Planning
  • Height: 250m (820 ft)
  • Floors: 80
  • Architect: Foster + Partners

Here is the other one I really like a lot. Took a bit of work separating this out of Birmingham's lengthy list. What is this called and what are the specs on this? I couldn't find it on the list.

For future reference you can just right click, choose 'copy image location' and paste it into the 'insert image' button.

Those are approved "One Nine Elms" 200m/161m | 58fl/43fl buildings which are part of £15 billion ($25 billion) Nine Elms project.

Hope this helps.

It doesn't work the same way for me. Must be different technology you have, I guess.

The map is attached which tells your every required detail so you don't get information overload as well. No point showing 4 or 5 when it covers a tiny portion of the whole picture that you originally asked for. We're all blokes aren't we? We learn more through pictures than writing!!

The 2nd set of towers are part of the 9 Elms masterplan which has a ridiculous amount of towers and more are coming every month. It'll be another city in a city.

Yes, I've been going over that map and then posted this below, which you'll find above.

Thanks! I like this one even better below. What is this called and what are the specs on this? Is there a ground-breaking target date for this one? Guys, remember to post per Flickr guidelines on the front page of the forum.

Thanks to the German Wiki page on New York skyscrapers which I update on a daily basis (so I can keep track), I get the following figures (completed, u/c, in prep and proposed towers which at least have a thread and reliable info):

200m+: 111 (no joke!!)
200 - 300m: 88
300m+: 23
300 - 400m: 15
400m+: 8
400 - 500m: 7
500m+: 1

New York, New York!

New York, New York!
Awesome Wikipedia Page
It is good that someone is updating the wikipediapage, 2 or 3 years before I was in New York the first time and after that I got interested in Skyscrapers. I was kind of sad because they were so less skyscrapers proposed where I visited the wikipedia page Good that someone is updating the page daily
And 111 200m+ buildings are a extremly high number, good to hear that. New York has the world's best skyline for now and if the boom goes on I also go with New York for the worlds best skyline 2025
