Acch the Shard of Glass wins every time for me - personally I think that when completed, LBT will be one of the World's finest 'scrapers, not just Europe's

I personally love LBT, and even though DIFA(Londons other tall) might stil be taller i think LBT is a better nomination.

Personally i think it is the best, this is how i would rank the others (if we count istanbul)

2. Dubai towers 1 Istanbul
3. Moscow complex Federation Moscow
4. Bishopsgate tower London
5. ?

I have heard of more but i need pics!

lets all rate them, its fun!

(Oh, and by tall i am thinking 300m+)

LBT! Great Shape & design. I like Federations 2 connected buildings, but I dislike their overall shape.

Dou you really think that LBT will be the highest in London?
Wait 1-2 years and London will show a +400m tower

Personally i like the DoI more than DTI

but its not +300m

moscow has a lot +300m towers

Do you think so? That would be nice!

Europe has never really been known for its skyscrapers, outshadowed by asia and north America, and now even the middle east...

But we'll show em! WE'LL SHOW EM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really I think most of Europe is becoming amazing on the skyscraper architecture

Like Russia, Turkey is patially in Europe although, again like Russia, the majority of the country is in Asia. The Bosphorus straits is the deviding point. Istanbul straddles this deviding line, putting the city on two seperate continents (unique for such a major city I believe). I believe the Dubai Towers will be built on the European side of the strait. So they are infact in Europe, just.

But yeah. I think I'd agree with your order. Although I'm confident a couple of new super tall proposals will come up in the next few years.

Kyiv:

Well, here is proposed Ukrainian super tall. First proposal was 402m high but then this area of the city got rid of any height restrictions and the new project of it is higher.

I present to you the first project, which is similar but different to a new one. I don't have any good renderings of the new proposal.









It will be visible from a future business-centre ( cluster ) of skyscrapers.
Thanks to www.archunion.com.ua
