Amazing stuff.

Can you edit the post a bit, and write above each development if it's current under constructionn, confirmed and date to start/complete, or if it's just a proposal? There is so many developments, but I can't figure which are confirmed or just a proposal.

Great stuff though!

Sommige dingen zijn prachtig, maar er zit ook wel middelmatige rotzooi tussen (winkelcentrum the mall bijvoorbeeld).
Some looks really good but there's enough mediocre, like 'the wall'.
Perfect way to built up last green spaces in Holland and make a sort of third rang copy of LA.

If I'm not mistaken, there are 3 100+ and one which is 100 meters exactly.

One from 100 (#uc), 2 x 105 (#uc), 1 x 195 (study) and one x 262,5 meter (proposal).

Most of us see the rabobank tower as 1 instead of 2 towers. I think it is highly unlikely
the 195 m tower will ever be built in that location, but I would like to see it come anyway.

That's no problem. We've got plenty of hospitable forummers here which will guide you through the whole city. Utrecht includes probably the most beautiful and cosy old-town of the Netherlands

a 195m tower (study) for Soesterberg!? I didn't know. But Soesterberg is more a suburb of Amersfoort than one of Utrecht I think... Anyway, a very nice tower!

Here's another overview of some of the smaller projects in Utrecht. No 'high-rise-violence' though, but there are some nice projects in that list.

I'll try to update this thread a bit more from now on.
