Obviously, I think Museum Plaza is the best new tallest. However, I also really like the Raleigh building. These are the only two that would stand out anywhere, not just small market cities.

the met 3 is amazing. but all the other skyscrapers just look like normal verticle buildings...there is only so much you can do in a building that just goes straight up for 700-800 ft. So i have to vote for museum plaza, it is the only building that looks unique, and can serve several purposes.


And i also think it will be very public friendly regardless of what people say....there will be a public park on the 22nd level....how many of the other buildings listed will have open spaces for the public? None I bet! I haven't even been inside the aegon tower, and i've lived in Louisville all my life.

the problem with signature tower in nashville for me its that its design isn't original and looks more like an office tower,and really doesn't fit in in nashville.


Signature Tower ,jakarta


key tower

I can't just choose one!

I give the ICE award to Met 3. Such a cool building for a hot town.

The building with the best ummm....HEAD would have to be Signature Tower (just barely over RSA). I love aluminum christmas trees and that's what the to of Signature reminds me of.

And finally, I have to award a BLACK BELT to Museum Plaza. Now here is a building that looks like it's ready to kick some serious ass.

RSA, Signature, and Block TU are my favorites.

I like that RSA and Signature seem to take historic elements and update them into the modern aesthetic.

Aww man!!!! I’m sorry. I had no idea this project was still alive. I just “ass-sumed” it was on hold. I certainly would have included it.

Ey, the whole world isn't New Orleans. There are plenty of buildings going up in a lot of cities, in the southeast, that were not included in the poll.

From this list i think da RSA Tower in Mobile and Met 3 that tower in Louisville is ugly and ruins the skyline i mean it looks like it belongs in the 70's.

My cities new tallest going to be U/C next month Signature Place i think its a pretty cool looking building i think its one of the cool ones of the south.

Apart from my hometown Signature Tower, I like Met 3 and RSA. I still don't know about Museum Plaza, but I think it's growing on me...

I love that tower as well, but I don't think it's Atlanta's tallest though.
