A tall black monolith, Paris.



In few days, this tower will lose the title of tallest skyscraper in Paris

^Luckily, it's way more ugly than other towers in Paris.

Anyway, here's a pic of the Wilhelminapier in Rotterdam. Now u/c the 158m tall New Orleans. The 165m tall (tallest in BeNeLux) Maastoren just finished.

And in (probably) a few years from now, it will look like this

Something from Warsaw, cause you seem to forget about its presence on the list

Calatravas mechanical obelisc is almost complete, the gold plated obelisc makes a nice contrast with the stainless steel.

Never... NEVER forget Poland!
That tower looks good though... best in Warsaw for sure. Among better ones in Europe too.

Mechanics would seem to imply movement? What does it do?

Wow! That is one of the best angles I've ever seen, beacause my favourite skyscraper (Messeturm) in europe is also visible together with the rest of the skyline.
And from this angle it looks pretty dense also.

Ugly as hell 'De Rotterdam'. Unbelievable that they gonna built it. Just staple some boxes and we have a tower. A shame! And is it so much of the same. And this not only for the Rotterdam, also for the other towers on right side of New Orleans.

I have to agree De Rotterdam on contrary to New Orleans seem buttfugly.
New Orleans have this nice art deco touch and depending on quality of cladding may be top tower in Rdam.

Think your jealous. Typical for someone from A'dam! We call this calimero behaviour.

I think, when it is finished , lot of critics will revise their opinion.

Why is he jealous? I either think it is buttugly. And Rotterdam surely doesn't do itself a favour with this box!
