This thread is to post skyscrapers that you think would be really good in Birmingham.

This is the Torre Mayor in Mexico City - it reminds me of an electric shaver, but i really like its shape and think it would look really good in Brum. It is kind of similar to BST and HCT in terms of the glass curve, but i love the top!

It is 225 metres tall (738ft)

I know its never ever going to happen in this city but I'd really love a slightly smaller version of the 950m tall/189 floor Burj Dubai Skyscraper, currently u/c with a completion date of early 2009 :eek2:

I have a sneaking suspicion the CAA might have something to say about it though :)

the torre mayor is a great tower and would fit in well on the brum skyline, not a fan of bundle tube structures, they look so old and awkward, no elegance.

I quite like this proposed Manchester one:



No idea if they're building it

Doubt it, as it's not a square box

^^That reminds me of an hotel in London that has just been done up to give that curved frontage...

It's quite cool - nice curves - fits well with what Brum is doing, and looks quite retro :)

If you showed me that and said which city? I think I'd guess Sheffield.

Messeturm, Frankfurt.



Frankfurt's Messeturm could be a realistic option for Arena Central? A sturdy looking building.
