35. Canada Water Sites C and E | 150m | App

That one is only 140m AGL. (150m AOD). I've mentioned it on the thread, but no one has gotten around to changing the thread title.

Also One Merchant Square is 140m AGL to the best of my knowledge.

North Quay will almost certainly not go ahead as planned. I'd be tempted to remove those from your list.

On the plus side you appear to have missed off these three:

New Covent Garden Building N8...................177............Pro
Convoys Wharf (Tallest Tower).....................155............Pro
New Covent Garden Building N10..................151...........Pro

Also we know the new Pinnacle will be 250m +, though the new planning application hasn't been submitted yet.

There's also the rather secretive Project India 216m. Fingers crossed we will hear more about that soon!

And finally 1 Undershaft (270m). Details are still sketchy on that one though.

I think you should create a more detailed list than mine Core Rising. Also what is this I hear about a potential super-tall in EC2?

I don't know if there's much competition when London can submit an application for another 20 100m+ towers in one hit especially when it lies just of Canary Wharf.

I don't think it's feasible to put that many 200+m towers there...it's not just about 'choosing' heights. Even with the proposed heights it's very impressive, unlike any other place in Europe.

It'll look very impressive from the river. Canary wharf has all the big stuff but having that type of development leading up to the big stuff will add so many dimensions to the skyline. It's a shame there's nothing hitting 200m but the density alone is very impressive.

London City airport is situated just to the east of the area, Skyscrapers and airports don't go well together. That's also the reason why there aren't any supertalls in Canary Wharf as its too close to the airport. There has been some calls for the closure of London City, but it all depends if they expand Heathrow etc..

No city will catch up with moscow until 2025. after that point is out of the way the most interesting to change might be Paris, whether or not it can build the supertall twins. London will steadily still build up its density and Frankfurt will most likely stay slow. some cities in the east of Europe might be wildcards though. Like Istanbul.

I think Paris will still be a contender for the top 3 if they finally get those twin supertalls built!

absolutely. their impact on the parisian skyline will be huge. they will be visible from the very central parts of paris



(this is not an official render)

Moreover, the Phare project (297m, 1.2 billions euros) is still alive (the franco-dutch developer Unibail presented it at the Mipim in Cannes this month)
