NOMINATE: Best Midrise (35-149m)

Nominate what you think are the 3 best midrises in the world.

These must be office, residential, hotel or commercial buildings in the 35-149m height range - any buildings outside this range will be disqualified when it comes to the final nominations. You may not choose cathedrals, churches, palaces, monuments, observation towers, government buildings, stadiums, bridges, etc. Future/proposed or under construction midrises will also be disqualified.

If you are unsure of a building's height, you can check the diagrams here: http://www.skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/

Please use this thread for nominating only. You may post 1 picture for each of your nominations. If you wish to discuss the topic in detail, or post larger numbers of pictures, then please use the "DISCUSS:" thread.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


General rules:
The Hall of Fame forum is where we decide about our all-time favourites from the world of skyscrapers, skylines, buildings and cities. Every week users can nominate and vote in a specific category.

The five nominations that get the most mentions will be up for the final vote the week after. The one receiving the most votes will go into the Hall of Fame.

Nominating
If you name more then three, only the first three will count. If you name the same structure or city three times, that will be counted as one. Do not use this thread for discussions.

Promoting your favorite
Discuss this week's topic in the 'DISCUSS:' thread.

This "the 3 best midrises in the world" is a bit daft isn't it? There must be millions of buildings within that height range that are "office, residential, hotel or commercial buildings in the 35-149m height range", and there is no way anyone could have seen all of them. It's more like "Nominate the nicest 35-149m office, residential, hotel or commercial buildings you have seen" type of a thread.

Well, bollocks to it:

The RLB


Palace Hotel (Built for Refuge Insurance):


CIS Tower:


Now looking like this due to solar panel reclad of the service tower:

I like Espirito Santo in Miami and Dongbu in S.Korea.

I would like to nominate Guthrie Pavillion 40m (1998) by Dr. Ken Yeang in Shah Alam, Malaysia.

35 -149 meters? isn't it to wide? I mean 35 meters can be 6-7 storey building, and 149 is already a high skyscraper in Europe.
