a few towers should be missing to the left of the "twisting tower" but I'm ready to stand corrected.

That is something that I really like about The City and to a similar but slightly lesser extent, Paris.

I wasn't commenting on the quality of the building, I agree with you on that, but for me the relationship between a skyscraper and street level is equally important to its profile on the skyline, I like true urban density and I don't see that in that Milan picture, I guess this is part of the price you pay for having a designated high-rise zone in a European city (but again La Defence and Canary Wharf pull this off quite well)

Porta Nuova can not be compared to La Defanse or Canary Wharf for a simple reason: the towers that you see in that pic were built on an abandoned area which has on its immediate borders buildings of different time periods and neighborhoods with different "souls". The whole Porta Nuova masterplan was conceived to "sew up" the urban fabric and give it a more "human" impact, respecting the nearest areas. (the project is still incomplete, indeed miss the contemporary botanical garden and other towers which will be built by demolishing old buildings and not only).

However, we are confident on the fact that the skyline can be enriched in the future. Near Porta Nuova, there is a dismitted area of more than 60 hectares that could host new skyscrapers / highrises. See more http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=1658

What about CityLife (3 km away from Porta Nuova)? It is another story. The area once hosted the ancient trade fair of Milan. When the city built a new exhibition complex in the suburbs near the main axis roads, the Fiera di Milano decided to sell the old property. A tender was launched, different real estate companies and architectural firms participated to redesign the entire area. Insurance group Generali won the tender, with a project designed by Isozaki, Hadid and Libeskind. Other famous archistars like Renzo Piano and Norman Foster participated with other real estate developers, but they failed to win.

Instead I prefer when skyscrapers are part of the city center and they are integrated in the city. That's why I prefer Milan over Paris. I find some similarities between Milan and London (even if London has more towers), because they have different clusters and a very good design of the towers.
About density, some new towers are coming in Milan and will be really built, unlike many proposed towers around Europe that will never become real.
