There isn't such a big demand but the same shit going on as in Dubai, China whatsoever. But, let them play right?




Go ahead
The only cities in western europe where the birth of new skyscrapers can be associated to a high demand of land are London and Paris. The rest are just for the sake of displaying "economic progress". Like Berlin, where most of the skyscrapers were built to do a show off between the east and the west.

Not really... Rotterdam doesn't really have a lot of space (just like the rest of the Netherlands), centrum of Warsaw doesn't have much space either.

Warsaw has a lot of free space, contrary to Rotterdam. The city was completely destroyed and the communists leaved a lot of free space.

There are huge plots of land right in the center next to the already built towers, a railway museum has moved and all the surrounding area of the Palace of Culture will be filled with towers as well.

In Warsaw, Rotterdam and other cities in Europe, they build a few skycrapers every few years, built by a different companies, which shows a slow growth, more natural progress showing a demand, unlike in Moscow where they are building a whole business center at once. You want me to believe that they suddenly need so much space? Of course not.

This part of the city is not dense. The smaller buildings are gradually being demolished.



The surrounding will be filled





Those three encirlced areas in the North are being filled with towers. In the West new offices are being built. In the East there are still big areas where there are projects like this.

Anyway, don't want to spoil the thread, but the point is there is a lot of free area in the city center. And communist buildings are being demolished.

Anyway, a lot is planned already, some already U/C
