Singapore's skyline is splendid. All it needs is at least ONE supertall. I know there are height restrictions island wide, but are there any remote chances of a supertall being built?

Well, what I meant was that the downtown cluster needs a building that really stands out in height from the crowd. When will the air base be relocated?

About 2018 and i don't think next 5 years sg will have a supertall

But current u/c in downtown which is 290m doesnt really stand out. Maybe a 350m tower needed to make the differences

This is model of singapore for future

is there a chance for Singapore to remove height restriction at all?
I mean the country is too small.. relocating the airport wouldn't really make a difference?

At least the height restriction would be relaxed. Look at nina tower, its 25km from airport. Based on current tallest in singapore, its located the same distance and therefore 320m shouldnt be a prob

Nina Tower was designed to be the world's tallest at the time but got chopped into 2 due to its proximity to the airport and being right in the flight path.

Yes i knew about that. I stayed there twice and always in awe when standing below the building that time. If they proceed as original plan, it would be hk tallest at least by now.




The same goes to singapore. Republic plaza which is 280m was actually planned to be 400m in 1980s

which means.. there is very little chance of lifting the height restriction.

The entire country could very well be in a flight path..
