I've always really liked the Bank of America Tower, so that's what my vote goes to.

I think the Aqua looks a bit tacky.

The Aqua tower is hideous, it is a few decades too late. I vote for BoA.

I've had a little problem between Aqua and Trump.

My decision:

1. Trump International Hotel & Tower

1. China World Trade III
2. Trump International
3. Bank of America
4. St Regis
5. Aqua

I really like the style of the China World Trade, bland, simple, grey, and imposing. Looks powerful. St. Regis has the best design, it looks simply beautiful, I'd have rated it number 1 if only it was MUCH TALLER!

Trump International is beautiful neomodernism and Bank of America looks chiselled and sexy. Can't stand the Aqua at all, I just think it's really ugly with all that wavy crap on it. Were these the only skyscrapers finished in 2009?

Out of these 5 my vote goes to Aqua. The other towers are just ordinary. Taller isn't always better.

I suspect some forummembers are manipulating the pollresults

Trump International Hotel & Tower, by far!

Clean, "classic American" (to me) skyscraper, the way I like them.

But then, I'm partial to American towers, the 'scrapers I ever saw were in NYC...

The Aqua organic effect is impressive as is the old school Trump design. What's missing?
Floor plates, use and IMO qualities that make a building unique.

from a view of a skyline i like trump international& hotel but from ground i prefer aqua.

from a skyline perspective aqua looks like a normal apartment building its hard to tell there is a wavy design.

Aqua looks weirddddd but cool at the sametime.

I'm going w/ BoA Tower. It's the best, imo, and I love its eco-friendly features.

China World Trade Tower 3 resembles the WTC, in my opinion.
