There are quite a few of these more visionary schemes for London. It's hard to see most of them, if any, being built.

Chongqing's old "stack of plates" vision was better. This won't be built anytime soon anyway.

This is not a proposal, just a vision.

Is that part of New York's skyline at the background? You can easily recognize the Rockefeller Center and the Citigroup Center.

This appears to be simply a general concept, and not an actual proposed supertall. I don't think it belongs in this section.

Those proportions are intimidating. Pretty wide for 300m...bucking the trend of slender and tapering buildings.

I'm changing the title and moving this to Architecture for people to discuss.

and, let's face it, the entire northern half of Manhattan. The back half of the picture is just the view from the empire state building, looking north.
