Don't you worry about London , a super-tall is in the works for The City of London cluster, watch this space.

On another note, I'm looking forward to seeing Hermitage Plaza rise.

Istanbul is on another level, the growth is exponential, incredible!

You think London will only ever have one super tall?

Anyway ..

Personally I don't think it's all about size at all. There are plenty of Asian skylines with huge buildings but not all of them are really aesthetically pleasing or coherent.

I do agree with the Shard statement, I am not overly fond of it myself or the city skyline for that matter (too many ostentatious towers vying for supremacy), unless of course it gets a few more boxy structures like Heron Tower. That being said the Canary Wharf area is clearly in line for vast changes and it already looks great now, so I don't think any other city has any proposals or amount of proposals to compete with it. Couple that with the other clusters and in my opinion it is a clear frontrunner (which is not saying other cities don't have some great projects in the works).

ROME

Part of the new district near Stadio della Roma.



Skyscrapers' shapes are different.

New details will be unveiled in next weeks.

Well apparently there are calls for mid rise developments in London rather than show case towers.

Ummmm

So instead of having 50+ 150m towers they want hundreds of commie size tower blocks.

There is already a massive shortage of housing as it is. Not developing land to its full capacity is just asking for trouble.

This one is unexpected because of its close proximity to the St Paul's sight-lines. Nonetheless I like it.

hard to say, I can't think of a european city that has an impressive modern skyline for me

I think Europe goes more along the lines of old world

yes there are cities like frankfurt, london, rotterdam, la defense in paris but for some reason none of them manage to wow me...

I think classical architecture is Europe's strong point!

Da Défense IMO already had surpassed Frankfurt as the best (density+architecture+height) Euro skyline, and the proposed projects will make it even better. Warsaw is emerging as a real contender highrises-wise, and London is still a promisse, but already with some nice views. My list:

1- Paris
2- Frankfurt
3- Warsaw
4- London
5- Moscow? Istanbul?

Are you feeling ok? This thread pertains to Europe and not the whole world.

I have a question Union Man, are you sure that the (Royal London Hospital Tower 2) is 100 meters high?

The building has only 18 floors.

Currently, I work on a list of all 100m highrise buildings in United Kingdom.

Hey, I can give you the link to the planning document...

http://legacy.london.gov.uk/mayor/pl...tal_report.rtf

The AGL heights listed are Tower 1, 97m and Tower 2 101m.

Despite only having 18 floors it is a pretty vast building in person and the London Air Ambulance is based on top of the building.

Have a look at it on Google Earth 3D .

Good luck with the list, your find outside London there aren't many 100m buildings'.
