NOMINATE: Best Cancelled Skyscraper

Best Cancelled Skyscraper

Nominate what you think are the 3 best proposals that were never built, based on project renderings and other information you've seen. These must be "official" projects that were serious proposals at the time - in other words, you may not nominate your own made-up "fantasy" projects. They must be real projects by real architects that failed to materialize for some reason or other.

If you need some help in deciding, you can check the diagrams here:
http://www.skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?17315106

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.

I really liked the crystal facade of the Kowloon MTR Tower (now Union Square's commercial supertall).

Weston Tower - Toronto



College Park - Toronto (podium was built)



Maryon Tower - Toronto



As for the last, as far as unbuilt skyscrapers go, it's a beaut! It's much better unbuilt than built....

Mmmmm miglin-beitler. Wow that would have looked great. It doesn't matter chicago has the best skyline in the country with or without it.

Toronto's maryon and weston towers should get put back on the drawing board, any idea why they never built them?
