Not sarcastic, I haven't really researched much into skyscrapers, I just look at skylines. You seem to know more about the various details

Alright, here's what I have found for Ghandinagar / GIFT:

Supertalls:

1. Diamond Tower (Pro), 410 m, Office.

2. Gateway Towers I & II (Pro), 362 m, Office.
3. Gateway Tower III (Pro), 245 m, Office.

Skyscrapers:

4. Naga Towers I & II (Pro), 230m, Office.

Highrises:

T6. QR Towers I, II, & III (U/C), 122 m, Residential.

T6. QC Towers I & II (U/C), 122m, Office (I), Mixed Use (II).

This is literally everything I could find on Ghandinagar. These are the only buildings on SSP, and I almost didn't find them because none of them are even drawn. I highly doubt the proposed towers will get built when you don't even have your own Wikipedia or SSP diagrams. Diamond Tower is all I could find on Wikipedia. That was it. No way these are all getting built.

They don't need a wikipedia page to officially declare they are building something. Everything on the riverfront has been approved for phase I (it will be built in 3 phases). And everything always gets built in Gujarat.

and there's a big thread with thorough information and constant updates about everything here:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...552518&page=75

btw, so you don't get confused when you read the word crores, 1 crore=$200,000
and lakh means 100,000 so 1 lakh rupees = $2,000

LOL @ People and their nationalism

Go ahead and find excuses for your nations. It's a trait I hate about guys, being a guy myself. Is there that need to fight over irrelevant sh*t like this? If you truly belong to this forum, then all cities should try to showcase and show-off their towers because towers and skylines are what we like!!!! People don't argue about cars based on their nationality or things like that?

My Number 1!!!
Not as massive as NY or HK, but Chicago has got the best balanced Skyline and above that, is has with the Willis Tower, Trump Tower and John Hancock Center 3 awesome Buildings.

People really do t get that Chicago is a beach city an that the great lakes are comparable to Mediterranean or caspian sea. They're massive! Looks great! I live in Michigan 3 hours away but I've never been, hope to go real soon!

Lol great lakes are comp[arable to mediterranean? sure didn't seem like it when I went there lol

And Chicago's skyline looks fine, but it's not absolutely spectacular like some of the other one's we've seen

Haha sorry I didn't word that right. Te Mediterranean is obviously way bigger! But I was trying to paint a picture to people who have never been there that it's an inland sea mote than a lake. People really can't seem to grasp what it looks like, they just think of the biggest lakr they've seen and try to multiply it but there's no other freshwater mass on this planet quite like it. Especially in size. And I agree :P
but I think the way the buildings are lined against the lake and the gold tone to the sand is very special. They need to build 2 supertalls closer to the lake to make it more superior!

True it's a massive and spectacular lake, but the beauty of the Mediterranean is in a totally different league. Even the Caspian along the coast of Baku is spectacularly beautiful. And those countries have lovely food and architecture to add to their lovely seas.

However, you're right many people really don't know that Chicago has a nice beach sitting right beside it, they think it's more comparable to NY or something. Instead, it has a lot to offer than New York does(with less crowd of course), along with a nice beach and a massive lake

Perhaps that's the reason why I find Chicago the best Skyline. It has not such "spectacular" commieblocks as HK and Shanghai and ridiculous buildings as Dubai.
By the way, NY is almost to massive and it has to many buildings of same height. Besides that NY only has 1 Building at the moment that is taller then 350 meters (without spire!).
NY was my number 1 before 9/11 and before the Trump Tower in Chicago was build.
HK Skyline is the most spectacular Night Skyline. But at day time you will see it has to much horrible residential Buildings.

Ill definitely have to agree with you about hong kongs residential ugliness in the day. But I think what new York has to offer now is just as spectacular as post 9/11 all do respects. The new world trade center is beautiful. It doesn't just add to the skyline but the giant mirror claddings compliments the surroundings perfectly! Can't wait for it finish! One57 is also a beautiful addition and I'm optimistic about 432 Park avenue, an the Hudson yards( when they finish) or if. I think chicagos a beautiful skyline but I can't really find it exiting with almost no growth to its skyline ever :/

I agree that the Mediterranean is very beautiful and in a league of its own, it being an ocean and having the perks that the sea can give But I also find the great lakes to be very special and beautiful in a different kind of way. This depends on where you go, but everything I go to lake Michigan I'm amazed by how clear the water is and also how far out you can go ( I love finding sandbars!) the lighthouses are something unique to the great lakes. And it's nice to not worry about sharks or any animals at all to be honest. I think if Chicago was on the ocean rather than a great lake it wouldn't be so special.

New York has 2 buildings with a roof height of 350 m currently, ESB and 1WTC. BOA Tower is over 350 m as well, but does have a spire. Then others under construction, approved, or proposed over 350 m are 432 Park, Hudson North, 225 W 57th, 2 WTC, 3WTC, 15 Penn Plaza, One Manhattan West, and 51 E 42nd Street, giving us a possibility of 11 before 2025. Not to mention 11 more supertalls under 350 m. New York has more supertalls planned than any other city except maybe Mumbai.

Okay, but that is no issue. At this moment Chicago is my favorite Skyline. We will see if al those u/c in NY are completed if I will change my mind.
From distant view Chicago simply wins for me. NY on the other hand is my favorite city seen from street level view. No other city can beat those magnificent Canyons of Buildings!
