Anyways, b2t.
That's indeed not so smart of him. Ik know the difference, but maybe because I live in the Netherlands.

Ot, cladding is awesome.

Yes, that is the taller one. And unfortunately, the smaller one is not gonna get build shouldn't they find enough tenants. However, should they indeed build the second tower, they won't begin before 2015.

There are plans, but it is not sure whether they build the second and the third one or not. First, they need to make sure that there is actually demand for the towers.

A spokesman of the developer actually stated quite the contrary in an interview some weeks ago. He basically said that DC 2 is built for sure, it's just a matter of time. There are also plans regarding the usage (less commercial, more residential). DC 3 on the other hand is still very very vague and apart of some renderings nothing concrete so far. The smallest one is DC 3 and should be around 120-140 Meters.

And in front of the white building ("Hochhaus Neue Donau") they will demolish a big cinema this year and in early 2014 there should rise another beauty in Vienna:





Danube Flats - 140-150m without spire. It will be a residential building. Imagine the second picture with the three new towers standing and between the DC-Tower 2 an Danube Flats the DC-Tower 3 rising. Would be awesome...

Yeah, it WOULD be awesome. To be honest, I believe it when I see it.

Here's another stellar update....

Picture taken by user NiGhtPiSH today. Mischek Tower (circa 110 meters) hides behind Hochhaus Neue Donau.

Let's hope they keep the date. DC 1 was postponed several times!

You're right, although Donau-City and La Défense have a different scale, there are many similarities: Both cities are built along a historical axis, in both cities the pedestrian traffic has its own level and both cities get twin towers (DC Towers and Hermitage Plaza). But unfortunately both cities aren't very cosy places compared to the historical city centers. Hopefully this will change in the future...
