Skylines 10 years from now

Hello everyone!

I'm looking for renderings of what your city's (or other cities') skyline will look like in the future. Are there supertalls planned? Other big projects? HOw will they change the skyline? What will your city's skyline look like in 2016? Post your pics here please!

The SBC building might undergo a massive makover soon. But lets not hijack this thread.

I love Toronto's new skyline. I would like to see a supertall building that'll compete with the CN Tower.

Well. there are rumours that Manulife financial might propose a 1000 to 1200 ft building for there world headquarters, just rumours though, and if they do build it then it will be to the right of the main CBD cluster..far from the CN Tower.

The LA rending is fine, it just needs one building taller than the US Bank. What surprised was Calgary and Albertas' skyline, nice.

Probably closer to 2010, assuming Aqua and Mandarin Oriental sell well.
