I'm all for overground train stations but the tracks themselves should be put underground in such a central location, huge waste of prime real estate. Good to see that there are plans to develop this central district though, it seems to have a lot of potential.

The area behind the Central trainstation is kinda boring and normal actually. So the railways are a nice thing actually.

Paris just like London has a good density. Frankfurt is a village with some huge towers but still remains a village without any character. Germans, after all, like to live in small provincial towns. Rotterdam has the future. Warsaw is just like Frankfurt a provincial place. Madrid on the one hand gathers very ellegant buildings but a lot of small provincial roofs.

On another note is a good thing they are improving this by building higher towers now.

But please, it is ridiculous to believe that in real life you would get more imprest by 8 100m towers, than by 4 200m towers. Sorry no way my jaw drops for 100meter towers. Actually, now when i see new projects that are 100m is like meh, not imprest, hope for a really modern, excellent design to make up for its lack of heigth. Anyone that has seen 250m buildings don't see towers of a 100m ever the same. Rotterdam does not have a better skyline than warsa or madrid, maybe in picture but not live. Still Rotterdam has a very fotogenic skyline because of the lack of midrises that would put their towers into a better prespective. An this is really noticiable because towers in Rotterdam never seem to be overtowering other midrises. Thats when you can tell skylines are most impressive because they rise above other buildings.

Here is a shot of madrids CTBA overtowering 75m+ residentials.

O.k. you're right: they're high.

If somebody would replace them by chimenees it would be less ugly.
