The design for a giant tower block in Glasgow has been unveiled.
The landmark building could be completed by 2007
If the city council approves the plan, the 134-metre building would be the tallest in Scotland and work could start this year.
The £100m project includes retail and office space, a swimming pool and more than 200 luxury homes.
The 39-storey tower has been proposed for the site of the former Strathclyde Regional Council headquarters in the city centre.
A spokesman for the project said: "It would be a 21st century building, unrivalled anywhere in Scotland."
The tall teardrop-shaped single tower has been planned to link to another single block.
The development, which has been given the name Elphinstone Place, would have more than 20,000 square metres of office and retail property.
Four glass-fronted penthouse flats would have an uninterrupted view across the city, being higher even than the Science Centre Tower to the south of the Clyde.
The proposals have been submitted to the city council for planning approval and a full traffic impact study and environmental report are being drawn up.
Elphinstone chief executive Ken Ross said: "We wanted to create a world-class development and the team have created a design which will become a landmark building and an icon that will make Glasgow proud.
"It will be an outstanding addition to the skyline of the city and will transform, regenerate and revitalise an important part of the city."
Although taller than any building in Scotland, the proposed development would be only a quarter of the height of the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, which claims to be the world's tallest at 553 metres.
In the UK, work has now started on a 47-storey, 171 metre tower in Manchester.
