This could be the catalyst for some serious skyscraper rivalry between the two sides. Kind of like 20s-30s era New York!

Saw new plans in the paper the other day - two new towers of 275m and 369m may be built in TST in the coming future!

Any pix!? Where abouts in TST? Hopefully this is not related to the New World Centre redevelopment on the waterfront. Talk about a bad location for a skyscraper!

True but it seems these are the last ones according to the morning post. The new regulations don't allow for tall buildings closer to the water.

Looks like the New World site is being demolished and prepared for the supertall. I haven't seen a recent rendering though : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=766852

You've already posted it in the thread! And as I explained earlier, it's from our resident forumer Ribarca - he's already posted the photo as it is in this thread...you don't have to keep reposting his photos and then linking to his flickr page!

Managed to get up to Beacon hill to test my new camera. The extra megapixels really come in handy here. I'll try to get a pano. Unfortunately only later the sky turned better.

Hey Ribarca, I've seen pictures from you taken in the evening from various peaks around the city. Is it easy to come down from the mountains after dark? Or does it involve a significant amount of off-road trekking?

Beautiful photo as always!
