To bad. Rotterdam and Frankfurt are the cities in Europe wich have the best skyline's. But not that good and not that close to each other (the buildings). But they will be like that in the future!

And back O/T! I realy love this tower! I'ts going to look so damn good! That pic below this post is just amazing!

That makes no sense at all. Neither highrise nor supertall implies any numerical sizes. Mega is a number. Maybe Ultratall. Personally i think the separation should be considerable or none at all.

Not sure what the third one should be, but 300 meter groups is the way to go I'm positive.
I agree with the 600m = megatall but I think that hypertall should start at 1200m but anyway nothing actualy in construction is planned to be 1200m + so lets forget the hypertall category. And to put something on topic this tower rocks , CHICAGO ROCKS, can't wait until it really stand out in the skyline.

Warswaw has indeed a nice skyline and I believe you when you say it's getting much better, but so are other European cities. Like Paris, London, Frankfurt and Rotterdam

stunning, has really shot up since my last visit in December (and brrrr, wasn't it chilly). Back for the marathon in Oct, so expect to see this bad boy pretty much externally completed. Top addition to a fantastic city (and city skyline).
