Who knows with an economic global recession building gets so cheap that the 500m tower will be brought back to discussion - and construction! Would be great!!!! I'd take a 360° Pano from the top of the building!!!

I've voted for Frankurt.

I hope people appreciate the pics from the Liverpool forumers. Our skyline is getting there, a few more talls and a some density, preferably behind the immediate waterfront skyline, and I think we can compete with the best in Europe.

Wow, very fine shots of Liverpool. It looks cool! It is not as grey and ugly as most English people tend to say...

Liverpool only has a few 100m+ towers. About 6 or 7. It needs way more to compete with other cities.

(Rotterdam about a few years ago, by Huib Nederhof and a rough impression of the future by me)

Delfste Poort (?) is very slender on the east-west direction! It looks like it was 300m!

Interesting to see so many booming European skylines (well until very recently ).

I still think the best skyline is a toss up between Paris, London and Frankfurt-am-Main though i feel in the coming years the latter will fall short due to its smaller size (esp in regard to residential tower building) . This can be seen already in london where the satellite CBD, Canary Wharf has started to sprout residential towers in its periphery.
