Longest existing skyscraper website on the Internet; online since october 6, 1997.
Never changed the silly design and being proud of that!
This website is under permanent construction.
This means that some of the information I would like to offer You
is not available yet and that You possibly can encounter some unfinished design.
Although constant renewal is one of the main features of the Internet
I apologize for possible inconvenience. Furthermore I apologize for errors I make in the English language. Since I am from The Netherlands, English is not my native language.
Thank You for visiting The High-Rise Pages.
Best wishes from Hans Netten
