Gosh, if you imagine the [email protected] Bay clustered with the "Trump World Tower", it is going to look messy!

*from this view, the Sail will be the tallest building in the skyline.

That makes OMB rather short... But, with new buildings coming up, much of ORQ will be hiddened in a few years' time. Take more pictures!

And in 2010, you will see a big hotel in front of this highway, instead of the skyline!!!!

East Coast Parkway has very dramatic, 3D skyline views. Although at some points blocked by trees.

In a few decades time, it would be a city highway, with skyscrapers on both sides.

Oops. Forgot Marina City Park is on part of one side of the highway.

I think Botanic Gardens would be near where Marina Padang is.


I think part of ECP would be a city highway.

It looks like one of the two cranes is gone. Maybe the orange thingy you mentioned is a smaller crane to dismantle the bigger ones ?

They should convert the whole tower into residential, the floorplates are quite small.

That's what I'm trying to say... floorplates so small.
