My favourite proposed skyscraper!!!

Milan is booming ! For the first time since the 60's Milan will have many skyscrapers taller than the famous Pirelli scraper (127 m) designed by Gi Ponti. It's in the area once occupied by the Milan's Fair, The winner proposal by Libeskind-Hadid-Isozaki is articolated around three tall towers (218 m / 185 m / 170 m) surronded by a park with channels. This big project for 5000 people-apartment and the same number for offices will change the skyline of the capital of Lombardy in a fantastic way. The project comprends even the new museum of design. This three scrapers with the recently approved new scraper for the Regione Lombardia (160 m by Pei), the one designed by Cesar Pelli for the city of the fashion (140 m) and the new one for the Comune di Milano (140 m) will have a strong impact over the city.

Yeah, the Milan project is much better than London Bridge Tower, I don't really like that "piramid" design.

Ya i like London's project a lot better. It just looks too amazing. One thing though, the design looks like a pure rip off of the SF pyramid tower.

Well it looks way better than the Transamerica Tower. Anyway, just because one tower was built in a pyramid doesn't mean that other cities cannot build a different version of it. Many tower has a different version of it so what's wrong on building one that is better?

I think that LBT is one of the best skyscraper proposals anywhere at the moment and I would far rather have this one than the latest Freedom Tower design.

Unfortunately, though the renderings get better, there is still a long way to go before we see the completed building, or even work starting on site.

In most of Britains major cities, new tall buildings are proposed or under construction. Whilst it is unrealistic and undesirable that our cities try to emulate the Manhattan or Hong Kong skylines, what we are seeing is a great improvement in designs over the last major tranche of tall building development in the 60s and 70s, as you can see by comparing LBT with the Guys Hospital tower next door to it.

My favourite proposed skyscraper is Liverpool's West Tower, which has just commenced construction and will be the tallest building in our city and the second tallest UK building outside of London:

My favorite would probably be the NYSE Tower, though it's probably now in the cancelled section.
