well, it hopefully by current plans will be 14 imho, with the current highrises (olümpia, viru, city, maakri, sas and union included) if we add tornimäe 1, tornimäe 2, then tartu mnt 15(35F), then the one next to olümpia(max 30), then the 40 storey lennuki corner, then the 40 storey on Tartu mnt 17, then a 30 storey building on tartu mnt 25/25a, then another 30 storey building on maakri 19/21, then a 19 storey one on maakri 34 then a 24 storey building on maakri 24/22

these are not mearly visions they are projects and plans currently in the hands of city planners waiting for approval ;)

i listed 11 new buildings, if we add the existing six we get a total of 17 HIGH highrises in CBD by hopefully 2008/09

Well, I think I said it sometime ago but still: I think that NCC of Vilnius is not going to be a tough competitor in terms of skyline for other capitals - Riga and Tallinn. I doubt if even 28 floor register center will be approved (it'll most probably be lowered to some ~24 floors). I think that NCC will not have tall towers - it'll be massive and short. ;) But it'll be bigger than e.g. new district in Tallinn (not sure about Riga though) - it's obvious, there are more people, more companies in Lithuania than in Estonia (population of Lithuania is ~2.6 times bigger).

^^^ Won't be a competitor? ATM it is a tough competitor and possibly the best skyline in the region. There there are no signs that the development of NCC would stop. In other words, height doesn't mean everything.
