The Al Burj looks incredible. It looks so amazing it is more of a space scraper than a skyscraper (over 2000ft tall).

Anyway, back in the 'real' world, i.e. outside Dubai (!) I like Foster's proposed tower next to the Freedom Tower (around 1300 ft), 122 Leadenhall by Richard Rogers in London (740ft) and a tower in Bahrain with windmills between it. London Bridge Tower at 1016ft and the Bishopsgate Tower in London also.

The LBT and Bishopsgate will truly redefine London in the way that no other building since St Paul's and the Houses of Parliament has. If costs are not cut in their construction London could be endowed with two of the finest buildings of the early 21st century.

Otherwise, special mentions must go to a new tower being built in Nishi-Shinjuku, Tokyo for a fashion school (around 700ft), the Fordham Spire (if it is built) and the beautiful Criterion Place in Leeds (UK) (around 540ft).

Investor: Besix
Object info: Construction of the largest skyscraper in Europe, 333 metres tall
Construction start: Unknown
Construction finish: Unknown


The Serbian national broadcaster, RTS, has shown a clip about the plans of Besix to build a 333 metre tall tower in Blok 26. This is the neighborhood in the vicinity of both the Belgrade Arena and Palace of the Federation. The investment in the tower would cost approximately 250 million Euros. For the first time, you will be able to get a look at the tower.

And see a promo video of Besix Tower in Belgrade:

What do you think of Zlota44? It's proposed in Warsaw, constuctions are likely to start in the 4th quarter.
It was designed by D. Libeskind. It is to be 192m tall and 52 stories high.

Gosh the proposed building in Jarkata looks really similar to BOC in HK. The architect sould have designed something different.

The BDNI proposal was supposed to emulate BoC's design.

One thing, it's the same architect (I.M. Pei). But I don't know why he implemented the BoC concept. Probably the demand of the client

The Penang one is very futuristic, but manages to be realistic and not ridiculous. I like it very much!

Bishopsgate is still fantastic, Al Burj is still the ugliest POS ever. Nothing compared to BD
