Meaning Burj Halifa (because it was n't oficially completed by Dec 31), I vote Trump, because of height

Aqua is good, but I don't like its top, so my vote is for St. Regis Hotel - beauty of simplicity.

St Regis looks so bland and uninspiring. How could it have so many votes.
My vote went to Trump Chicago. An icon of a tower that has made a very visible impact on the Chicago skyline, and brilliant finishing.

Trump International Hotel & Tower then the Bank of America Tower, look elegant. It took a while for my mind to confirm that the Trump Tower wasn't computer generated heheh.

My #1 choice is Aqua, looks like a topographic map!

Trump is the way to go! You have 5-6 terraces...

Distant second is Aqua, which is non-useful beauty and difficult to maintain

Compared to the other towers i don't really see why the Torre Libertad is in this list, i think in many (fairly unknown) Asian and European city's there were much bigger and prettier projects.

Ontopic: they all deserve to win (exept #5 ) but Trump Tower is just simply in another league. Very good height, design, cladding and position in the Chicago Skyline. Runner up is Bank Of America NY, its so brutal and i absolutely love the spire

Aqua is unique but not my taste, i think facades like that work better on other type of buildings like musea or theaters rather than highrise buildings.

The China building is impressive with its 330 meter, but i think the cladding looks boring as hell.

The mexican tower looks like one out of thousands, maybe its round shape adds a bit to it, but its not a memorable building at all.
