>> Amazing Buildings due for Completion in 2012 <<

Defining the development level of construction from around the world and showcasing architect’s most wild design dreams, 2012 will see the opening of some the most stunning buildings in the world, here is the top developments to be completed within the next few month:

1. Delanoe Tower by Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron
This 50-story building will be the first skyscraper in Paris, France . Also known as Projet Triangle , the office and residential building will use solar and wind power. It will overlook Paris from its southwestern extremity at the porte de Versailles, already home to a vast exhibition center. Mayor Bertrand Delanoe was able to overturn Parisian law limiting buildings heights to under 37 meters. The tower is the first of six gratte-ciels (high-rise) projects to be launched by Mr DelanoĆ«. These are all in “exceptional” designated zones on the outer limits of the city, with some to include subsidised housing to easethe capital’s housing crisis.
