Are those "proposed demolitions" in Germany real? Last I heard of the Bayer Highrise, it was just stripped to its structural frame and used as a huge advertising display. Only thing int he list that is really getting a demolition is the Henninger Tower for a new residential version of it.

The 'iconic' viewing platform for that building is totally gone now

I think it is a better idea to demolish it rather than endangering the lives of the people. These buildings are pretty much old now and are way to big for any sort of renovation or repair.

If skyscrapers like the Empire State Building can be renovated, the ones on this page certainly can be as well. However many buildings like these are demolished because they want to replace them with something more useful, not necessarily because they are dangerous.

That Bayer Hochaus really had no business being destroyed.

Ugh, I can still not believe they demolished this. Probably one of the most distinctive and unique buildings in NYC, replaced by a box that you can find an exact copy of in almost every big city.

What a god damn tragedy.

I don't know any building that looks like 1LP.

It's smaller, stumpy, passed away cousin:



Wikipedia.org

The same but without exterior beams and slightly skinnier.



Both examples are from NYC too, how 'bout dem apples.

Boxes with exterior beams like 1LP are quite common with skyscrapers from the '70s. The only distinctive part I can come up with is that it's black (though actually grey without the paint).

The Singer Building though, I can't really compare it to anything. Maybe a sleeker, domed version of the Campanile Di San Marco if I am stretching it.

But anyways we're getting off topic.

I wouldn't mistake any of those for 1LP. They don't give the same pattern and effect with their external cladding. If there's any unimpressive building around the WTC site it's 1LP's brown neighbour to the North which has a huge blank eastern wall.

It was an utter shame about the Deutsche Bank Building being demolished but there was nothing that could be done to save it. Hopefully 5WTC will give some references to it.

Interestingly Poltegor and Intraco 1 used to have pretty much the same design but Intraco was recladed in the '90 with this green mirror glass.

Yup. Totally demolition worthy.

Also Ilmet would be the second youngest completed skyscraper to have ever been destroyed, following the former WTC7, at only 16 years old.

Even the orange building would have looked good with a renovation. Sky Tower should have been built elsewhere.
