Dubai has become a " must see" place on the wish list of any self respecting Indian traveler and well, I am just back from the famed golden land.

I really love the Freedom Tower. I've been following this one since the first designs came out... around 2004 I think. The new WTC complex is just going to be awesome...

glad chicago is getting a new supertall (apart from trump), great city. too bad the spire doesnt match any of the other buildings. it looks like a giant unicorn horn, eew!

really impressed by some of the south korea designs. i think the incheon towers will look fantastic.

swfc still the sexiest skyscraper in my opinion

A supertall have never been 450m+. But in this thread the author wrote "Vote for your favourite supertall project (starting at 450m)".

So The Shard is a supertall, but its not a supertall above 450m is it?

If you read the intro text in the first page it should all be pretty clear...

I'd say, "Dubai has the most ambicious proyects worldwide".... because definitley, it's not the best city. There are houndreds of cities I'd prefer livinig in before Dubai.
