Indianapolis
Seattle

Boston

The point of this forum is to post what the biggest skyscraper proposal in each city is, then to look back in a year or two too see how many of the proposals were built and how many new proposals came along

^^^ hhmm.... The Honolulu proposal looks a bit questionable. The design is a exact replica/rip off of the Gas Company Tower in Los Angeles. Google image search it, windows and all are the same, the only difference is the top has been extended upward a bit.

I agree that they do look very, VERY similar, but take a look at the honolulu diagram and the illustrators have also drawn it.

The Nashville 505CST mixed-use tower posted earlier has been scrapped in favor of a different design. The developer is selling a portion of the site to the city for a large parking garage and plans to build a 750ft. all-residential tower on the remainder of the site. There will be enough spaces in the garage to accommodate the resident tower which would be Nashville's tallest if built. Here are the renderings:

Thanks, updated it.

Anybody who would like to add to the list in welcome. If the building has rendering or even just a basic layout, feel free to put it aside the name of the skyscraper :tup:

You forgot Detroit, but I don't think we have much in the works right now. I think there is one short residential tower planned for downtown.

In chicago its the chicago spire. 7 or 8 years ago it was the chicago spire, so lets see what happens

Salt Lake City - 111 South Main
380 ft/23 stories

http://i.imgur.com/xByGDpH.jpg

Just about to truly begin construction above a new Performing Arts Center (so maybe it's not in the proposal stage anymore, but it hasn't ~officially~ begun construction - demolition of old buildings is almost complete).

Still not sold on the design, would prefer an angled roof and a better transition into the base (the theater), but it's better than many of the old 70s boxes that we have. It will be the 3rd tallest in the city.

A new convention center hotel has been approved, but they're still searching for a developer. It's expected to be - and hopefully that will stay true - the new tallest in the city.

San Antonio has two towers planned in the 600 ft range both to be of iconic status. The renderings have not been released yet. Other high rises are in the planning stages in various parts of downtown. San Antonio may be on the verge of an Austin style skyscraper boom. Hooray!

updated a couple. Tell me if I need to update any more.

I don't know. I think that will fit in well with the current SLC skyline.
