Newest additions to your city's skyline

Earlier this year, Singapore had a new addition to her skyline, a strangely shaped tower called One George Street.







Poll it here:

Now, another giant is u/c. The One Raffles Quay complex of 2 towers. The shorter one being very massive.

The taller tower is 245m tall.

Very nice looking additions to an attractive skyline. Too bad that Singapore has a fairly low building limit.

For Boston, it is the 33 Arch Street which was completed last year. (The glass tower.)

Wow, great new buildings in S'pore. What's the point of the top part of One George Street? Just for lighting? Does it count in their height?

It is a decorative piece to increase the presence of this 23-storey building. It counts towards the final height of 153m.

The building is lighted up at night in a 'luminous' blue:

One of the most recent additions to Brisbane's skyline is also it's new tallest:

Riparian Plaza, designed by Harry Seidler - 200m to roof, 250m to spire.

Soon to be overtaken by Aurora (207m to roof) & in a few years, Vision (246m to roof) with a spire possibly going to 280m. Just in case anyone didn't know!

Hong Kong

Besides 2 IFC, there are a bunch of residential and commercial skyscrapers that have been recently completed. Nina Tower is still under construction so I won't include that in here.

AIG


















Langham Place is another newly-completed skyscraper development on the Kowloon side, although it is not very visible from Hong Kong Island.



Notice on the top left The Arch (orange-ish building with a hole on the bottom) has topped out.
