I think that new towers shouldn't ruin the "magic of the trio" (Isozaki-Hadid-Libeskind)
for sure they will build 3 more towers there. because those volumetries are planned. we don't have info, but I'm pretty sure they are "working" on that now

Thanks a lot! I take it the central cluster has much more serious proposals for near future? Not unhappy about that. I view Citylife as secondary/supporting cluster and I think Milan should focus o building up its central cluster around Unicredit first. It's starting to look very good

I totally agree with you!
I see Citylife as a secondary cluster that doesn't need too much building too.
The central cluster, Porta Nuova distict, it is not finished yet. Investors are already focused on it! There are projects about new tower that will rise in the future, like Unipolsai Tower o the one in Melchiorre Gioia 22.
The Abu Dhabi fund, buoght a building of 40,000mq ca, that will be demolished and replaced by a new Cesar Pelli tower.
Farther, Coima sgr, the company who pilot this, has allocated a new fund called Porta Nuova Gioa / 4 , with the interest to acquire new properties and renew the old business center , maybe with other towers

Russia; other European countries tend to have boxy 20th century towers.

Well, it's classy. I'd rather live in the city filled with boxes than those ridiculous buildings that you can sometimes meet in the Middle East. They just don't go so well with typical European (either West or East) architecture. Non-boxes towers (like in Moscow f.e.) are still pretty conservative and I'd like to keep it. We've already had too much kitch.

Okay so buildings that are actually from the 21st century are ridiculous?

Those cement towers put me in a coma.

I say the skyline looks better when it's based on simple buildings that look like they actually serve their purpose and then you try to break it a bit with weirdness. If you start with overly complicated stuff, weird shapes and such it just doesn't feel real. More like Las Vegas or some sort of theme park

Las Vegas IS a theme park...

I'm saying cement towers with small windows look hideous.... Then again Moscow is lucky their skyscraper boom took place in the 21st century.

Thx for brief overview, sounds very promising. Any of the more realistic near-ish future projects crossing 200m mark?

we still don't know anything about the heights of the future towers in Porta Nuova...but we also have to say that next to Porta Nuova district, there is a big area called "scalo Farini", a former railway yard, which will be under requalification with another big project, with lot of buildable volumetry, but with half of the area designated for park, and so it is an area that likely will se the rise of new towers

If this is how you describe brutalist buildings such as the London's Barbican then I can't agree with you. They might be gray but they sure have more character than most of this plastic-looking modern towers.
