As a Turk, it is hard for me to except that some other city can be more beautiful than Istanbul but damn those London photos. London is my favorite city in the world for a reason! Pure perfection! I don't care about height or density. London is the most advance city in terms of architectural quality. I also love the cloudy weather there. I know this is a bit ironic considering the fact that half of the UK is in Turkey for vacation right now

Congratulations to Warsaw and the Polish people with regard to the significant date. It was a common grief for our peoples. I wish that, without exaggeration, metropolis will continue further development and peace for the whole world!

Sky Towers U/C (214m), the first 150+ skyscraper in Kiev


Ukrainian GDP is projected to fall by 10%... I doubt that the economy will pull a super-high building.

That construction company is Turkish too. Ant Yapi is pretty powerful company, they wouldn't invest if they didn't have faith in the future of Ukraine.

I think it will happen sooner. Until 2020, the economy will come to a stable growth, and by 2022 will be announced the first supertalls projects

Actually, this will be a second tower above 150 m. One is already constructed. You can see it right at the background of this photo above. There are also about 25 towers above 30 floors.
