Riga got its tallest in 2004 - 121 m.

Now we every day are waiting for official approval of several towers surpassing it, there are rumours of "Vertikala pasaule" project with height up to 50 floors, 180 m.

Chicago is getting a tall one but it is just a proposal... you kno the Fordham Spire...

But Chicago is getting the second tallest for sure, since its constructing, its the Trump Tower, just less than 90 feet shorter than the Sears Tower.

Hong Kong is constructing a 490-m high hotel and office complex called ICC at the Union Square development. The top of the building will house a Ritz Carlton hotel - the world's highest.

Keep track of construction updates here : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...5&page=1&pp=20

Manila is getting a 335m tower called Sky City. The construction was halted due to complains of the neighborhood about their houses would be overcasted by the building's shadow, building's gonna block their view, etc. Sky City has just won the court battle and construction will soon resume.

Baltimore could possibly be getting a new tallest in the form of a "St. Regis Hotel/Residential Tower". We just don't know how tall yet, so stay tuned.

Newcastle has a proposed 187m tall tower named Gallowgate tower, which will be a huge improvement on the current 80m tallest.

There is a 1 in 4 chance of it and it's smaller counterparts being built.


(Render done by me)

If this isnt built, there is also a 1 in 4 chance we could be looking at a few towers between 130 and 160m.
