These 2 new towers are not that bad for old Europe.

I'd trade them for one 350m with no hesitation. They are OK but insignificant compared to new buildings being built everywhere in the world. We deserve better (and taller!!)

Good on you France. You really do deserve it and the towers look fanastic. Keep up the good work and in time you'll be known for beauty and skyline.
As for Frankfurt, well done. You guys made a nice move in making a well distinguished skyline in Europe. You should be proud.
London, we need to move from the boxyness in Canary Wharf but it's not at all too bad. The city of London looks good when all the projects go up, especially London Bridge Tower.

Remember competition is healthy. It's a race for no.1 skyline between
France - La Defense
Frankfurt - (What's it called?)
Moscow - Diamond Towers
London - Canary Wharf
London - City of London cluster
(Bearing in mind London has two clusters)

Once again France, well done. Nice elegant towers.
I guess you mean Diamond Towers in Istambul.

Moscow will have 3 tall clusters. City, Shchukino and Zamoskvorechiye.


great tower, btw

those two building form nice contrasts with each other in terms of architecture. one's sharp and almost brutalist in terms of appearance. th other looks roundish and very free-flowing. great addition to la defense!

I prefer Frankfurts Skyline, but this is great news for Paris. The race between the UK, France and Germany will definately be interesting, lets just say 2 of them have had massive headstarts
