Moscow will be something like this:



Except that tall tower will be replaced with:


And this is just the start. This is Moscow-City, there will also be City 2 and City 3... combined to form "Big City."
That's a pretty old skyline pic... but I haven't found any newer ones .

And remember that that Chicago picture doesn't include quite a bit of the skyline (like much of River North and the lot Fordham Spire would occupy).

The tower was designed by Norman Foster, so that's why there is a resemblance.
As for which one is better, I don't think we should discuss that and argue about it. I've seen it way too many times, and both sides are like woodpeckers ^_^.

Guys...seriously why are we posting stuff on individual skyscrapers, this forum is made for future rendeings of skylines, the reason the first person put those locks in his post is because he thought people would start comparing and getting into arguments. So lets NOT post pics of individual skyscrapers and Not compare anything, this isnt a coparison thread.
So id have to agree with xAKxRUSx about not discussing this type of stuff.

id ask you guys what you thought of the first 4 renderings i posted..but you have probably all seen them a million times before lol

I think they're good. It would be a bit more helpful to post the "before" and "after" pictures, since most are probably not very familiar with the cities. I've been to Toronto 6 years ago, so I can't really comment on how much it changed since its kind of hard to tell what is new and what is old. I've always liked Toronto though ^_^.

Are the buildings on the left the same as in your pic? Seems a bit more...



Same thing with LA... can't really tell whats new and whats old... that and it's kind of far away.

Wow, nice skylines....

But as someone mentioned before, it would be a BIG HELP to see the before/after shots since I'm not familiar with most of the cities...and I can't tell what's new from old.

Brisbane now. Pic by defec8R...




Future, executed by Locke.




The tallest on the left is the approved Vision Tower, followed by the proposed Empire Square.
The very tallest on the right is the proposed Emerald Tower and Skyline Apartments which is already u/c, the taller on the end.

That proposed Toronto skyline is a bit excessive. Theres two many towers clustered together. I support tall buildings but you don't just build them to create a skyline. Tall buildings have to respond to the economic changes.
