Warsaw is becoming very nice. The situation of the city is quite unique in Europe. Can't wait to see it with the Warsaw Spire done. Any other big projects planned?

The Warsaw Spire (180m/220m with spire) is going up well


by Polex

At the moment the Q22's foundations are being prepared. It will be 159m.


by NoreL



Later this year a small tower of 96m will be demolished to be replaced by a 188m tower.

I often follow the Polish forum and particularly Warsaw and I have to admit that dynamism of this city is very impressive.

This 188 meter's building will be a hit!

Istanbul probably has a nice skyline but the pictures posted are always from bad angles in my opinion. When we can see the bosphorus, the river and the bridge are nice but not the towers in the background because they are all away from each other and there is no organisation.

It is possible that some angles from the South or From the north show actually a great skyline, or maybe close ups on the different districts.

Here is a picture of Liverpool which is smaller but I really like

I don't see le Defense being represented on here any more than any other skyline. The WW2 comment is off topic.

I consider it as the perfect pic of Istanbul.
The perspective is just awsome.

Off-topic: the solution for that bus-lane is very intelligent

Most of those buildings are going to be demolished in an urban renewal project http://megaprojeleristanbul.com/#okm...onusum-projesi

Actually none of the buildings from Maslak and just a few from Levent are seen in this picture. Maslak and Levent are the two biggest clusters in Istanbul.

Levent, Maslak in the background on the right side
