Nice group of buildings, but I would like to find something more original to vote for. In any case Bank of America is the less boring of the group. Aqua is original but from an engineering point of view is nothing new. WTC China is an updated version of the old WTC in New York. Trump Tower looks like two buildings put together. St. Regis looks elegant but nothing else...

Aqua
Bank Of America/St. Regis
Trump
China WTC III
The last 2 are just so dull, despite their height, I don't see anything mesmerizing in their design, especially the China WTC, kind of disappointing I'd say.

Aqua is absolutely magnificent.

BoA comes a close second. I was in New York last year and couldn't keep my eyes of it when I was in the area. Simply imposing!

Oh, and I have to agree that St. Regis is nowhere near the magnificence of the other four. It is beautiful but the other four are in a different league.

Tough for me to choose between Trump or Aqua. But I gotta go for Trump. I followed every floor of that towers construction. What an awesome building.
