Empire World Towers (312m)

These were planned for Miami before the market crash. Hopefully, something equally as tall will go on the site. They were really planned at 319m. Don't know where I got the 312 from.

Grollo Tower would have been an instant world-wide icon for Australia if it had been built.


Perth's Waterfront Sky Tower, along with the Westralia Tower

And finally, CBD-1, Sydney


All would have been amazing, but overwhelming in Melbourne, Perth & Sydney.

Heysel Tower - Brussels - 635 m.

On the site of the Brussels Atomium (102 meter only), another iconic building was planned initially: The 635 meter high Heysel Tower. The tower was designed by the modernist architect Léon Stynen and the engineer Gustave Magnel in 1955. It would have been the tallest skyscraper in Europe untill today. the two designers didn't came to a compromise about the design and material of the structure. Unfortunately Magnel died in 1955, after which the project was cancelled.

TOKYO | Nishi-Shinjuku 3-Chome Redevelopment 西新宿三丁目西地区再開発 | 338m, 2x 245m, 190m | CANCELLED

No detailed renders for this group of towers, which would have included Tokyo's 1st supertall was ever released, but that was probably because it was cancelled because it didn't get planning permission in 2010 because of transportation issues. Basically the city demanded that this project would get it's own train/metro station, but the company that operates the railway line right next to the site was not interested in opening a new station.

Earlier this year this redevelopment surfaced again, but the new plan which is not detailed yet is significantly smaller then the original one.

The 2nd Rinku Gate Tower, Izumisano City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan


Rinku Town is a new town in Izumisano city that was developed together with the Kansai International, the new airport for Osaka that was build in the Osaka Bay. It included a twin tower project, with one tower at both sides of the bridge that connects the island airport with the mainland.






But only 1 tower has been constructed, the other one was cancelled because of the new economic situation after the Japanese economic bubble broke in 1992. It was not just this tower that was cancelled, but most of other smaller towers in the 1st image. Leaving only 1 lonely 256m tall tower in a sea of low rise shopping malls and amusement halls.

Kulczyk Tower, 280m ; There's a height limit for the airport in that place but the tower will rise anyway but it will be only max 130m:


Lindleya Office Corner, 330 m ; The small buildings occuping the site of the tower can't be demolished:


Plac Zawiszy/ European Trade Center, 280 m ; I don't know the reason of cancellation...:


Skrzydlaty 3, 400m (The one on the right) ; I don't know the reason of cancellation...:
