I needed to show you guys this (there are also skyline pics in it ). Somewhere in 2012 construction will start on these supertalls. Other projects you see in this short movie are already u/c or even finished like Central Post or the new train station.

No supertalls, but skyscrapers (+200m) and some highrises (150-200m)

Best skyline in Europe: (Not EU)

1. Frankfurt
2. Madrid - Love the uniqueness
3. London
4. Paris
5. Moscow - Will be higher when the highrises are completed.

Its not the best. But it has alot of potential. Its first 200m+ tower has gone in for public consultation and a full planning application is to be submitted shortly. Also has alot of big boys in the pipeline its just wether or not this downturn switches. Its a shame because one of the finest looking towers in the UK began construction but were soon halted. It would've included Birminghams first 5* hotel in an 82m tower and residential units in a 144m tower.

I didn't saw Moscow was in the EU? Infact I wrote what I thought the best skylines in Europe and not in the EU were. What does the 'Nothing to do with Spain' thing mean? Im not sure what your getting at there.

This thread is about EU skylines only, Moscow is clearly not in the EU.
Theres another thread about european skylines. Im sure You can find it.
"Nothing to do with Spain" is sarcastic expression pointing out that at least Youve got some roots in Spain

My bad, meant to write 'say.' Never realised there was a general European thread, but I will have a look Cant say I have any Spanish roots (I think!) and I haven't been there before either. My opinion is based purely on the amazing architecture and the unique placing/spacing between each tower which gives a nice difference to the usual clusters.
