Should have built number 38 - 2007 ft? That would have been over 600m high!!!!

Funny how designs come around though - number 5 looks like they nearly built the burj, 12 tokyo sky tree etc.

Great find - thanks for posting Celt.

I was aware of the tower, but had not seen all the possible designs for it in that book.

surprised people don't know about this already.

•An underground line was built to serve the anticipated massive visitors but after the tower demolition went nowhere. The name of the line does however retain the official title of the tower and is called the Metropolitan Line.
:lol:

Presumably the underground line had reinforced rails and double wide doors..
