My favourite 'Three Empires Tower Istanbul'
It would built on the sea
And it would be ''600 m & 200 f'' !

Well maybe it is not the best cancelled tower but perhaps the best one too be cancelled in Vancouver? My personal favorite developer is Bing Thom so 687 Howe is one of my personal favorites!

My nomination: Badriya Tower, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

[IMG]http://i3.************/vo0cr9.jpg[/IMG]

415m, 96 floors - cancelled due to the death of the investors wife.

IMO, this is one of the biggest losses to Dubai's skyline!

Bring back Badriya Tower!

Unknown? Not to me. It is horrible it didn't get built cause the design is one of the 5 best designs I have seen for a Dubai tower ever!

Not so beautiful, but I just don't want you to forget that we had Europe's tallest tower projected for Malmö, Sweden only a few years ago with 85 floors and 325m! It was called Scandinavian Tower and the investor was a norwegian rich man called Arthur Buchardt.
It totally felt out of proportion for Malmö though, now we have the beautiful Turning Torso instead...
