The Russia Tower is very iconic. Hope they build it in the future!

Maybe not that impressive and tall, but still nice and good for a city which has only 90.000 inhabitants

the achmea II tower (155m)
(the tower at the right, that one at the left is achmea I (115m), the one in the ,middle is the avero (from the same company)(75m)

The Sail in Singapore would be better off as an office tower than a condo.

Al Burj - Future World's Tallest

Dubai's Al Burj - construction probably to start in a couple of years - will beat Burj Dubai for world's tallest building title

Whoa at first I thought Al Burj was too simple and ugly probably because of bad renderings, that last aerial it looks impressive and awesome. GO AL BURJ!!!!!

I'm still making up my mind about Al Burj (btw how exactky do u pronounce that?). I mean, sure it wins in terms of the 'tallest' proposed skyscraper, but I don't think the design is anything to marvel at...that's not to say it's bad, on the contrary, it looks pretty impressive, but I think if this tower was the same -only smaller- it would not actually register with many people as one of THE great skyscraper proposals....

Anyway, two nominations, though they are actually approved skyscrapers, not proposed:
