DISCUSS: Best European Skyline By 2025

Many European city's have high restriction.. Amsterdam for example can't built higher than 108 meters around the business district. For Frankfurt the reason is easy why they don't built higher.. there is no market for big over the top buildings.. the top buildings are already occupied by big Germans biggest financial company's.. there is simply
No market for even taller towers. Unless all the big banks come to Frankfurt then you'll see some super talls getting built.

The highrise zones in the master plan restrict the sites of very high skyscrapers in the urban area.

The only site on which a 300m+ building can be built is behind Tower 185.

well, to be fair the Frankfurt authorities are usually relatively flexible when it comes to that. I'm sure they'd be open to modifying the masterplan if somebody wants to build in a place outside of the given locations or approve the project regardless of the masterplan (if it's reasonable, of course)

Manchester, UK

More proposals have been submitted / approved in the new St John's area of Manchester, one of our forum members has merged together a couple of renders to show just how much the area will change

Here's a streetview of what the area looks like now (pretty barren) -



Here's what it will look like by 2020 -

And here's another render of part of these proposals (Trinity Islands) -



The largest tower is roughly 212m, pipping the (currently under construction) 201m Owen St tower to become the tallest tower in Manchester (and tallest UK building outside of London)

I'm looking forward to seeing all these new towers! The United Kingdom could use some more/better skylines.
