Wow! Yeah - just got it! It's quite regular in the centre like Lower Manhatten, yet quite irregular around the river like the City of London.

Fantastic diagram alsaif2012! Keep them up! I really do miss this project myself!
I hate to break it to you but those designs aren't nearly final. They are buildings from around the world. Unless they are replicating all those structures...
I can see a 3 WTC, a spireless 1 WTC, fosters tower in Paris, bank of china HK. The tower rising in Beijing and I think I even see the old design for a tower in Miami...

And 22 Bishopsgate (formerly The Pinnacle) in London! I waited 8 years of my life for that building! The dream is all gone.

R.I.P. The Pinnacle

The current height is still 94.13 metres.
