^Looks ok but is all the same The Hague will get a very very dense skyline. All the buildings (u/c and proposed) will be built next to each other.

Not really. Now benidor which is mostly residential towers has really been hit, a lot of towers got cancel stopped or delayed. But Spain is doing quite well with office towers (and those are normally the cool ones).

I like this pic, showing the old towers, and then I notice the new in the back. That crane in the left is the new windsor tower which is U/C by the way.

Not exactly. These projects for València are approved, and will start in 3 or 4 years (I supose without crisis). It's more than the construction of some highrises: are plannings approved by the City Hall, and some buildings are u/c in this moment. The financial crisis is affecting to the residential construction, but is probably in 2 or 3 years all turn to the normallity (i hope).

Wow! Great Rotterdam. Obviously, better than Liverpool or Bimingham (i don't know why are in the list, comparing with Paris, Madrid, London, Rotterdam or Frankfurt).

There is a fundamental difference between the skyline of Liverpool, Birmingham and Rotterdam with those in Madrid, London or Valencia: the highrises of the first three stand out more because they are surrounded buy buidings of low height, so it is easier to excel. In the latter, this is more complicated because the highrises are surrounded by buildings of more height. Thus, while the two or three Liverpool highrises may be seen almost intact, in Madrid or London is just over half (from distant prospect), it gives the impression that they are not as high. In Valencia, there is one area in which stand 4 highrises of 100m and a 120, but are surrounded by more than 15 buildings of 15-16 floors, making it more difficult for both excel.

However, this does so that everyone gets a nice skyline (especially Rotterdam, which surprised me).
