Nice overview! I am mostly excited by the 'Flat Iron' building, it will look great in it's surroundings.
I am not a real big fan of Kollhoff's architecture, but his design for 2 140 meter high government buildings look pretty sharp.

Ha, overdoing it a bit with the government buildings there - such buildings shouldn't be high and mighty; the government are 'us'. The weird thing is that Shell's HQ is lowrise while government offices stand tall ... Should be the other way around.

And actually, the skyline is quite good already! Moreover, you could include projects in Rijswijk which is like a satellite town now.

Too me Rijswijk is just a suburb of The Hague (along with Leischendam, Voorburg, Wateringen, Nootdorp etc..). But then thats my kiwi interpretation of things

I wonder what Constant Niewenhuis (the person behind the original thoughts of Niewe Babylon) would think of that tower project? Seems very far fetched from what he was trying to go for.

Otherwise, there are some damned nice projects listed- besides the 'Flat Iron' and the tower which is presently a study- the rest are quite good.
