Beetham Tower, Manchester - pretty much the only skyscraper of note in the city at the moment. Pretty lonely, I'd say.

hmm 1canada square is not lonely at all and as for the gherkin and tower 42 when you see them in real they do not look lonely, there's quite a few highrises around. IMO the city's skyline looks better than canary whorf, when you get near it on a train it looks awsome.

Canada Square definitely isn't lonely - not only has it got two other 200m towers on its back doorstep, but it's also the centrepiece of a rapidly growing cluster. Meanwhile, in the City, Tower 42 is a little bit isolated compared to the Gherkin which has Willis, St Helens and Lloyds right next to it, but again, they are both part of a rapidly growing cluster. If you want a lonely London tower, I'd probably say the Broadgate Tower.

Travemünde has a lonely one too.


But the winner is Tuning Torso in my opinion, seen it in real, looks so alone.

Menara Komtar in Penang was ranked the 18th loneliest. The next skyscraper was some 292km away? Really? I kinda doubt this.

The CitiGroup tower in Queens, NYC is quite lonely. It has friends across the river in Manhattan, but nothing of its size around it.

"The Skeleton" Cracow (Poland)
Construction of the skeleton was terminated due to the crisis of 1979.





For over thirty years Cracow's panorama has been "decorated" by an unfinished structure of a high-raise dubbed "Skeleton" and called "TreiMorfa" by the new owner.
The 90 meters high building located in Mogliskie Roundabout area, in the Old Town neighbourhood, has been a cause for non-stop controversy.
Its been falling into disrepair never reaching its architectural glitter. Due to new owner intentions considering its standing in the landscape, urban and
architectural aspect could decide of its future a grat deal. In the meanwhile the city changes in size and hight. The landscape and the urban contexzt changes.
Perhaps the city needs its presence. It could have a possitive effect on the city's contemporary siluette and the "TreiMorfa" tower emmerget through metamorphosis
would become a tastefull signpost for an observer looking for the city "heart" in Cracow's skyline.

New project

I've got a pic taken from the Eifel Tower to back up the Tour Montpanarsse as being probably the lonliest in Paris.

I think it is because the Tour is one of the very few large modern skyskrapers outside the La Defense area.

Hammon's Tower - Springfield, MO. Hopefully it will have a new neighbor provided the new Hammons project goes through.
