I love the Baltimore Tower but I wish the cladding was curved... I can't help but feel like the squared cladding slightly takes way from the curvy gorgeousness. Only a little criticism.

sorry, I wasn't clear. didn't mean to suggest that video was the actual example of the enlarged cluster, just that (I think) its that software/model the City will be using for such experiments. the youtube was just an example but I'm sure paying customers have a more up-to-date version and the ability to throw in hypotheticals.

Landmark Tower at 233 meters and 76 floors.

However, it soon to be overtaken by Spire London at 235 meters but 67 floors.

Next you have Newfoundland at 220 m and 60 Floors.

And South Quay Plaza at 215 meters and 68 floors.

The construction industry is currently experiencing its most rapid slowdown since 2008. This is not in general manifesting itself on projects already on site - developers have spent most of their money by that point and will want a return on it. It is however affecting projects before that stage, that frankly don't get posted on here anyway. This thread is not the place to spot trends in that regard.

That said, it's not the development apocalypse yet either. Mainly because we haven't left yet, and there is a considerable chance we still won't.
