Hmm, I like The Uptown and the Ritz-Carlton proposed for Toronto. The one for La Defense looks cool too.

Found a picture of The Uptown:

THe Spertus Institute's new building in downtown Chicago, I like.



Also a residential proposal called MoMo.



And this, if you can believe it, is scheduled for Chicago's suburbs:

I'm not very impressed with the La defense thing. (Just my opinion)

The Noida Tower is supposed to be the tallest in the world. There is some info on emporis website. I must agree though that I do not really like the look right now. I am pretty sure that it will change though, because the architects are good. They have built fancy buildings in Dubai.

It most likely won't be the tallest anymore. Still in the top 5 probably, but not at the heights of Dubai. But that's still impressive for India, considering it lacks anything in the top 300 I think, and with one huge thing of towers will go to near the top.

DIFA tower (Londons tallest proposal)




Columbus Tower


The Leadenhall building


Beetham London


Heron tower (expecting a height increase)
