Top 20 Projects Completing in 2020 | The B1M


From striking skyscrapers to vast Olympic
parks and stadiums on a level of ambition never attempted before, 2020 sees a new decade
kick-off with the completion of some truly remarkable construction projects. From the overwhelming number of schemes set
to finish this year, these are the 20 you need to keep your eyes on. Stretching over four square kilometres and
including a major extension to the Dubai metro, the finishing touches to the 2020 Expo site
are now being made ahead of the event’s opening in October. With more than 130 nations showcasing the
best in global development – and with pavilions designed by some of the world’s most renowned
architects, including Santiago Calatrava, Grimshaw and Foster + Partners – the 2020
Expo is expected to welcome more than 25 million visitors over its six month run. Making headlines when it was first proposed
in 2015, Melbourne’s Premier Tower is now beginning to make its mark on the city. Inspired by the music video to Beyonce’s
“Ghost”, the skyscraper’s curvaceous facade also plays a significant structural
role, breaking up and disrupting wind loads that would cause the tower to sway. The USD $1.84 billion Allegiant Stadium in
Las Vegas will become the most expensive stadium ever built when it complete’s ahead of the
2020 NFL season. With space for 65,000 spectators, the landmark
stadium will become home to the Las Vegas Raiders – who are relocating from Oakland
– and the University of Nevada Las Vegas Rebels. Topping-out in 2019 after six years of construction,
the tallest skyscraper on New York’s Billionaire’s Row is set complete in 2020. While it won’t take the title of New York
City’s tallest building, the 472 metre Central Park Tower will overtake the nearby 432 Park
Avenue to become the tallest residential building in the world. Los Angeles’ striking SoFi Stadium is now
racing towards completion and is set to host a string of high profile concerts throughout
the summer of 2020. Becoming the new home of the Los Angeles Rams
and Los Angeles Chargers, the 70,000 seat venue is expected to play a major role in
the Olympic Games in 2028. Already part-occupied, November 2019 saw the
topping out of Melbourne’s first supertall skyscraper – the 100 storey Australia 108. Rising from former swampland in the city’s
Southbank district, the striking tower will feature the highest residences in the southern
hemisphere when it completes in 2020. With its New National Stadium opening in 2019,
Tokyo’s wider Olympic Park will complete early in 2020 ahead of the Olympic opening
ceremony in July. Constructing a number of new venues and redeveloping
some that played host to the 1964 Games, all eyes will be on Tokyo as the world’s athletes
gather in the city. Part built on the original structure of Echelon
Place – an incomplete complex which fell victim to the 2008 Global Financial Crisis – the 59 storey Resorts World Las Vegas is now nearing completion. Despite rumours of delays, developers behind
the USD $4.3 billion scheme have announced that it will open in 2020, making it the first addition to the city’s Strip since the Cosmopolitan in 2010. The Daniel Libeskind-designed, PwC Tower will
become the final high rise in Milan’s City Life master-plan, joining skyscrapers designed
by Zaha Hadid and Arata Isozaki upon completion. The 175 metre concave structure will be the
fourth tallest building in the city and arguably emerge as the standout tower in a country
not known for tall buildings. April 2020 will see Vietnam’s first foray
into hosting a Grand Prix with the completion of a 5.5-kilometre hybrid circuit. Bringing together a series of converted public
and purpose-built roads for the race, the new routes will be handed over for public
use after the event. Adding to an ever-growing list of state-of-the-art
stadiums on the African continent, the 60,000 seat National Stadium in Abidjan is set to
open in 2020. With the Ivory Coast due to host the Africa
Cup of Nations in 2023, the venue will stage the opening ceremony and the final match of
the tournament. Now the tallest skyscraper in the City of
London, 22 Bishopsgate will finally complete this year. Originally the site of the Pinnacle tower
before works were halted in 2013, the new structure rises to 62 storeys from the foundations
of its never-realised predecessor. Already topped-out, Tower 1 at Torres Obispado
rises 305 metres to become Mexico’s first supertall skyscraper, dethroning Chile’s Torre Costanera to become the tallest building in Latin America. Topping out in April 2019, the 363 metre Vista
Tower will complete in 2020 offering a hotel alongside a number of residences. The structure is already the third tallest
building in Chicago and the tallest skyscraper designed by a female architect to date. Now in its second season of construction,
works to upgrade the wharf at Antarctica’s Rothera Research Station – making it capable
of accommodating the new Sir David Attenborough research vessel – are set to complete in April
2020. With the new wharf in place, construction
crews will return in late 2020 to continue work on the wider station. The skyline of Warsaw is set to change dramatically
in 2020 with the completion of the 53 storey Varso Tower. While the roof of the skyscraper will reach
230 metres, the inclusion of an 80-metre spire in the building’s official height will see
it crowned as not only the tallest skyscraper in Poland but in the whole of the European
Union, taking the title from London’s Shard. Standing 280 metres tall and each rising to
81 storeys, the twin towers of Brazil’s Yachthouse Residence Club will become the tallest buildings
in Brazil when they complete and the second tallest skyscrapers in South America. Becoming the first metro in Pakistan, the
Orange Line in Lahore is the first of three routes now proposed for the city. Running for some 27 kilometers, the new line
is expected to serve 250,000 people each day when it completes and becomes operational
in 2020. With Ethiopia fast-emerging as an African
powerhouse, the 198 metre new headquarters for the state-run Commercial Bank of Ethiopia
will become the tallest building in the country when it completes later this year. After more than a decade of construction,
August 2020 will see Seoul’s World Cup Bridge finally open. With works first commencing in March 2010,
the bridge was originally expected to open in 2015 but became significantly delayed due
to financial constraints. If you enjoyed this video and would like to

  1. The Poles: we're gonna build the tallest skyscraper in Europe!
    The budget: we're a little short on some tens of floors.
    Just put a big antenna for the rest of it!

  2. Dubai will be the most Innovative country in the world…………( I also just saw a documentary about Dubai and all that slave labor)

  3. PAKISTAN Orange line train is started
    PAKISTAN will complete construction world second biggest DAM at sakkardu north city of pakistan in 2020

  4. About half of them are stadiums. I am sad and mad at the same time. Billions wasted for nothing. Not 1 project for the changes that this planet is about to face head on in the years to come. Thanks for the video

  5. those projects are perfect candidates for the IPMA Global Project Excellence Award, check more www.awards.ipma.world

  6. Notice modern architecture is pretty from afar, impersonal and cold when your close. We're all about posing from a distance with little substance personally.

  7. This list is not complete without mentioning the multi billion dollars Refinery currently under construction in Lagos Nigeria and owned by Dangote Group on schedule for completion in 2020.

  8. Finally you added our Lahore first $3billion Orange Line Metro train which will be completely operational between March and April but uou should also add Indian and China's projects.

  9. Hello, people, this information is not relevant. The tallest building in Europe is Lakhta center in St Petersburg. Its height is more than 420 meters.

  10. You missed Gujrat Cricket Stadium which has capacity of 120,000. World largest cricket stadium. And Hyderabad metro red line which is 3rd line.

  11. In March 2020, Ahmedabad, India will have a stadium with a 110,000 seating capapcity. Nearly double than the stadiums mentioned here. Felt like it should have been mentioned.

  12. It's difficult to believe you didn't find any world class project in India. Many of them worth mentioning considering they are Asia's largest if not world's. Please search the YouTube itself and you would get the info.

  13. Motera, the world's largest Cricket stadium (2nd largest in general) with the capacity of 110,000 spectators didn't deserve to be in the Top 20? 🤔

  14. While each of the towers are masterpieces of design and engineering, the overall "glass tower" look is making cities across the world look the same which is in a way quite depressing. I remember being really excited at all the 'scrapers planned for Manchester but now I look at them and thing wow that's boring. Meanwhile I walk down and street with Victorian warehouses and could stare for hours at the intricate brickwork etc.

    Can't just be me who finds this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India_House,_Manchester endlessly more architecturally more interesting than this new development https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deansgate_Square

  15. Varso Tower is not the tallest building in the EU because they cheated by adding a spire. It surmounts the London Shard only because the UK will cease to be in the EU.

  16. that Las Vegas one looks really cool. and revolutionary. sorry morons don't understand cool means something to marvel.

  17. And here's me: too lazy to clean and organize my garage.
    It looks like Sanford & Sons was bombed in a terrorist attack

  18. "If Heaven's Warnings Go Unheeded – I am bidden to declare the message that cities full of transgression, and sinful in the extreme, will be destroyed by earthquakes, by fire, by flood. All the world will be warned that there is a God who will display His authority as God. His unseen agencies will cause destruction, devastation, and death. All the accumulated riches will be as nothingness….Calamities will come – calamities most awful, most unexpected; and these destructions will follow one after another. If there will be a heeding of the warnings that God has given, and if churches will repent, returning to their allegiance, then other cities may be spared for a time. But if men who have been deceived continue in the same way in which they have been walking, disregarding the law of God and presenting falsehoods before the people, God allows them to suffer calamity, that their senses may be awakened….The Lord will not suddenly cast off all transgressors or destroy entire nations; but He will punish cities and places where men have given themselves up to the possession of Satanic agencies. Strictly will the cities of the nations be dealt with, and yet they will not be visited in the extreme of God's indignation, because some souls will yet break away from the delusions of the enemy, and will repent and be converted, while the mass will be treasuring up wrath against the day of wrath. – Manuscript 35, 1906. Ev 27.2 – Ev 27.4

    There are amusements, such as dancing, card playing, chess, checkers, etc., which we cannot approve because Heaven condemns them. These amusements open the door for great evil. They are not beneficial in their tendency, but have an exciting influence, producing in some minds a passion for those plays which lead to gambling and dissipation. All such plays should be condemned by Christians, and something perfectly harmless should be substituted in their place.2While we restrain our children from worldly pleasures that have a tendency to corrupt and mislead, we ought to provide them innocent recreation, to lead them in pleasant paths where there is no danger. No child of God need have a sad or mournful experience. Divine commands, divine promises, show that this is so. Wisdom's ways "are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace."3While we shun the false and artificial, discarding horse racing, card playing, lotteries, prize fights, liquor drinking, and tobacco using, we must supply sources of pleasure that are pure and noble and elevating. AH 498.2 – AH 499.1"

    "The days in which we live are solemn and important. The Spirit of God is gradually but surely being withdrawn from the earth….The condition of things in the world shows that troublous times are right upon us. The daily papers are full of indications of a terrible conflict in the near future. Bold robberies are of frequent occurrence. Strikes are common. Thefts and murders are committed on every hand. Men possessed of demons are taking the lives of men, women, and little children. Men have become infatuated with vice, and every species of evil prevails.41Testimonies for the Church 9:11.Everything in the world is in agitation. The signs of the times are ominous. Coming events cast their shadows before. The Spirit of God is withdrawing from the earth, and calamity follows calamity by sea and by land. There are tempests, earthquakes, fires, floods, murders of every grade…. Rapidly are men ranging themselves under the banner they have chosen. Restlessly are they waiting and watching the movements of their leaders. There are those who are waiting and watching and working for our Lord's appearing. Another class are falling into line under the generalship of the first great apostate. Few believe with heart and soul that we have a hell to shun and a heaven to win. Mar 35.2 – Mar 35.4"

    Written By: Ellen G. White (1827-1915)
