My favourite proposal, after new renders were released recently:

Vision Tower, Brisbane
Height is 246m to roof with approval pending for a spire to 280m which would make it the third tallest building in Australia after Q1 and Eureka.

It's a shame that Chicago couldn't have 7SD after the FAA didn't approove its height back in 2001, and this was before 9/11, not after it.

^ I think Fordham Spire is nicer so I'm quite happy it didn't get built . (Assuming that FS wouldn't have happened if it had been)

Well, from the economic point of view, the project has about 10% of chances to get built, from the demographic view (Milan is shrinking fastly) it is 2% and from the need of new offices the chances could be 40%... in 2020!

I love Europaviertel with Urban Entertainment Center and the Millennium Tower (375m) in Frankfurt:

I actually like 7SD better than the Fordham Spire, b/c it lookes more realistic.

London's skyline is going through an amazing transformation, remember when only the London bridge and Parliament were the only recognizable structures. Dubai, has no words to describe its ascent to the top 3 or 5 of most intriguing skylines.

I wrotean e-mail to the investor Vivico. A part of it is under construction. The two darker shorter towers ( Tower 1 with 210m and Tower 2 with 180m)may get built next year, the Millennium Tower and tower 185 a and b (hidden behind the Millennium Tower can get built as soon as Vivico and the city's administration stop quarreling about the shopping areas around!

I think this is my favorite building going up in Brisbane also. It will have an observation deck! It will also be a great piece of infill as it will link two streets with a pedestrian plaza.

Nice!!!!
