It's going to look somewhat lonely w/o them. Of course, you have mobile cranes at Rolling Mill Hill, but just don't feel the same. It will be probably mid to late next year before we see another boom of cranes, maybe not even until 2010, whenever the new convention center starts.
A lot apparently depends on who Regions Bank signs up with for new office space. That alone could trigger immediate construction of a new building and there are five of those types of projects on the drawing boards: The 70 story Signature Tower, the 27 story West End Summit, a proposed office building at 17th and Broadway in Mid-town, a proposed office and garage downtown (20+ stories?) next to One City Center and the 22 story Eakins development near the Gulch.
Then there is the Lionstone mixed use development which looks awful close to getting started once a few property details are resolved. It will be a mixed-use (office, hotel and condos).
Griffen Plaza is far from dead and being redesigned even taller and could start soon. And the rumored convention center hotels (one as high as 50 stories) seem very likely to happen.
So the list of possibilities goes like:
70 story Signature Tower
50 story CC Hotel
30 +/- story 2nd CC Hotel
27 story West End Summit Office Building
26 story West End Summit Hotel/Condo
23+/- story City Center 2 office
22 story Eakins Office Tower
20 +/- story 1700 Broadway office building
20+/- story hotel at Lionstone
15+/- story Griffin Plaza
15+/- story Lionstone Office
