Aren't 2 of those towers already UC? This is for proposed/approved skyscrapers, not towers already UC.

Just coz its smaller doesnt mean it's not better. They dont even look that much alike. People try and bring LBT down by saying its a copy of other scrapers. I mean it has even been compared to transamerican pyramid, which is a load of crap(not the TAP, the comparisson)

I didn't say it's not good, just when someone refers to something being mightier than something else, it is usually bigger?

NY has always been at the forefront of cutting edge tower design ever since the flatiron was built.
Flatiron
Met Life
Woolworth
Chrysler
ESB
Mcgraw Hill
Rockefeller Center
Lever House
Seagram Building
Chase
WTC
Citicorp
AT&T
Time Warner Center

granted Ny has lost some of its trailblazing title but you cant erase almost 100 years of NY being on the cutting edge.

I can't remember why it wasn't built actually, maybe Grollo can enlighten us on that one??

That's a really thin tower on it's side. Is that the walnut bridge??

I vote for CCTV tower by koolhas (does it qualify am not sure if it's underconstruction)

London Bridge is nice with the effect of the glass and all but to me it look like the transamerica pyramid.

Yes that is the Walnut Bridge. Mandeville would be on Center City side, the bridge takes you into University City. I would agree the Tower Bridge looks a lot like the Trans America building in SF.

I personally don't like the London Bridge Tower at all I think it looks terrible, I think you should do away with this and approve The Bishopsgate Tower, now thats a nice tower, not as good as Q1 or Eureka though (Australian 300m+) lol
