I don't know if this is the right place to post it but two "old" skyscrapers are under recladding (actually just one at the moment) and they're growing in height.
They'd be round 100m (maybe a bit more with the final antenna on top of them) instead of the old 98
What's more, in my opinion the one under cladding looks much better than the old version.. so much is going on in Milan!!!!

I was in Milano last week and of course I went to see the new Lombardy Region Headquarters an I took some pictures:



I seems the building almost reached its final height, didn't it?
And I was really amazed by all the giant building sites in this area.
By the way: Does anyone know what's going to happen with this building located between the Lombardy Region Headquarters an the Pirelli-Tower? It's completely deserted:

Yes, I saw it too. Thought it was a new building – didn't realize that it was "just" a re-cladding. Do you have a picture which shows how it looked before?

Yep: probably about 10 m or so to reach the top (the roof garden), but the structure itself is finished

This is galfa tower (completed in 1959)
Recently they worked to make a renovation, but actually now is on hold and its future destiny isn't clear

A postmodern style almost identical to the other tower which has still to be re-cladded

Okay, but then this building is not too old - so why this obviously expensive re-cladding? This postmodern-look isn't that bad - somehow I like it.

Seems to be around 100 m. But this one definetly needs a re-cladding.... So let's see what will happen with this building in the future.

The first tower (the one now under recladding) was built in 1987
Anyway the problem is they used poor material; or better a 'new' (for '80s) material they didn't think wouldn't hold in 'good shape' in few decades... so the deterioration of the old cladding 'forced' to a re-cladding

Shouldn't the status be changed to topped out? Looks as if the tallest point on the roof was reached, or not? At least I think Milan has a new landmark and a new city's tallest already!
