OT: I think this thread is going to get a lot more attention with the upcoming highrise projects Looking forward to see these so called 'skyscrapers' rise. They sure will make a huge impact on the current rather small and scattered out skyline.

Looks like Berlin is getting some nice towers, especially Estrel Tower and the one near the old Kaiser Wilhelm Church. I like the Gehry tower, but it really needs to be taller to have a big impact.

Wait, is that a different tower to the one already set to start construction a couple of weeks back? Berlin will soon have a skyline, and that's so exciting!! Any chance we could have a complete list of skyscrapers U/C-approved and their heights? Is there one in the German forum?

Naja Fabri, according to the definitions used at this very Forum, the Estrel Tower is 25 meters short of being a Skyscraper, but then early highrises of Chicago were branded "scyscrapers" with far less feet/meters than this one, so that even other Towers of Berlin could be included as skyscrapers.

Important thing is not the competetive aspect (the height race or the density race after Asian Standards), but for Berlin to find ist own aesthetic and develop its overall metropolitan character (which is not about quantitative measures). It may be that real Skyscrapers will not suit Berlin until it has a broader base of midrises to "build on", so to speak.

And there are some more highrises in planning:



The project is called Agromex and lies close to the Treptowers and Oberbaum Bridge.
