Consider them as vision. Only Belle van Zuylen is seriously proposed, but will probably not make it.

Yes it is more accurate.

Interresting the european city with the most +140m building.

1.Moscow : 18
2.Paris : 15
2.Istambul : 15
4.Frankfurt : 13
5.London : 12
6.Madrid : 6
6.Warsaw : 6
8.Vienna : 3
8.Rotterdam : 3
8.Barcelona : 3
11.Benidorm : 2
11.Brussel : 2

There is only 12 cities with more than 2 +140m towers in Europe according Wikipedia, it is low.
Of course this list will change and fast.

A city like Hong Kong has more skyscrapers than the whole of Europe combined in pretty much every height category (ie 150m+, 200m+, 300m+ etc). Ditto New York, Chicago, Shanghai, and Dubai. I for one don't care to race against these cities. Of course skyscrapers are an exciting architectural form, that's why we come to this forum after all, and I would definitely like to see greater represention of that form in Europe. However I think Europe has the best collection of cities of any continent even without skyscrapers. European cities have the best architecture, the most attractive streets and public spaces, and the best streetlife of any continent. European cities also have much more instantly recognisable landmarks than cities of other continents. Chicago is rightly admired on this forum for its superb skyscrapers. But can Jo Public around the world identify a single Chicago landmark? No! The same is true for Tokyo - a vast and wealthy metropolis that nonetheless cannot boast a single world famous building or monument - nor one that deserves to be world famous. Europe's cities would also be ruined if we built too many or too tall skyscrapers. Imagine some enormous glass skyscrapers hulking over Big Ben, Red Square, St Peter's, the Parthenon, or the Eiffel Tower? Would that look good? Of course not! It would ruin our beautiful cities and their famous and world recognised landmarks. We Europeans are lucky to inherit such beautiful and distinctive cities. We should therefore be careful to place skyscraper clusters only in certain designated zones where they do not overwhelm our attractive and historic cityscapes. We should also pay greater attention to design quality than to numbers or raw height. Taipei 101 may be the tallest skyscraper in the world but it's also hideously ugly. Sao Paulo is a contendor for the most high-rises of any city in the world but 99% of them have zero architectural merit, and, overall, Sao Paulo remains a very ugly city. So forget height and numbers. Design, location, and proportion should be the skyscraping goals of world's most civilised continent.

^ You are pretty right, Europe is building skyscrapers because everyone else does that nowadays, that's fine as long as they don't destroy the historic cityscapes. There are places, even in Europe which is pretty uknown and needs to be put on the map(for example former Malmö) A nice skyscraper is a good way to do that.

There is only one city in Europe which I can imagine competing with the great skyscraper cities, and that is Moscow.

^ I'm not too optimistic about Moscow. One tower in particular is absolutely hideous. It's the one that Coth tries to claim as four separate towers - a massive great hulk of a box. Unfortunately it will be big enough to be seen all over the city. That doesn't enhance Moscow or its skyline at all. It just damages it. I just hope that the more elegant towers around it will be enough to offset the damage.

Construction of towers itself is not even started yet, while you are claiming something by looking on old poor model that was made to show another building.

^ Why? Has the design changed radically? Because unless it has then the damage will be done. Otherwise let's just hope that the great lumpen box never gets built at all.

^That's not how we all feel. Afaik it is a small minority who thinks that way. Of course one can also specifically only count EU-states, but that's "the tallest building in the EU", not "Tallest in Europe".

IMO using Europe to mean only the EU is much worse than how America has come to mean only the US.
