NOMINATE: Best Under Construction Skyscraper

Best Under Construction Skyscraper

Nominate what you think are the 3 best under construction skyscrapers in the world right now (February 2006).

These must be towers over 150m tall, which have (at the very least) started demolition and groundwork,
i.e. they must be "active" projects. Externally completed towers are not allowed.


If you are unsure of a building's status, you can check the diagrams here:
http://www.skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?16212756

Please use this thread for nominating only. You may post 1 picture for each of your nominations. If you wish to
discuss the topic in detail, or post larger numbers of pictures, then please use the "DISCUSS:" thread.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


General rules:
The Hall of Fame forum is where we decide about our all-time favourites from the world of skyscrapers, skylines, buildings and cities. Every week users can nominate and vote in a specific category.

The five nominations that get the most mentions will be up for the final vote the week after. The one receiving the most votes will go into the Hall of Fame.

Nominating
If you name more then three, only the first three will count. If you name the same structure or city three times, that will be counted as one. Do not use this thread for discussions.

Promoting your favorite
Discuss this week's topic in the 'DISCUSS:' thread.
