I think there is a 350m supertall project in Frankfurt but I don't know if it will be built.
Can someone change the title?

Great news, by the way, did anyone else noticed that it's 323m, Eiffel tower is staying number one 324m

yes, there's such a project...it's approved for 350m or even more. but at the moment it doesn't seem it'll be build in the next few years.

Hermitage will be the tallest skyscraper though, you can't really count the Eiffel Tower as a building. If you do, then this thing would be counted too:

Same with the view of Notre-Dame as you're coming down the Seine.. and now the mayor wants to build a skyscraper or two behind it?

I sincerely hope we're being punked.
Yeah, it should be weird but look the Montparnasse Tower, it have a position abnormal into french skyline, at least in Paris (La Defense)

That, my dear pierre, is the Emley Moor transmitting station. Probably the UK's equivalent of the Eiffel Tower, sort of. It would be the tallest in the UK, but we can't really count it as a building.

It was meant to be a joke Yes, It wasn't funny.

Yes, I suppose there are uglier towers out there. I think you used to be able to go up to the top, but they don't let you anymore The view wouldn't be quite as good as that from the ET lol, but it would still be pretty damn cool

Edit: Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing what Norman comes up with... I really liked Ferrier's proposal for the Tour Phare, but his proposal for this was... not so good. Hopefully the new design will be better.
