It's design is not innovative in any way, but I think what people like about 1WTC is it's plain elegance and symmetry. It's a cube at the base then turns into a perfect Octagon as it goes up. Height and symbolism also may have played a part and we can't deny why people would choose it solely because it will be the tallest building in the US.

Like me, I don't fancy elaborate designs, so it's very hard for me to appreciate Abraj Al-Bait Towers, but I find buildings like The Shard, the WTC, and SFC to be very pleasing to the eyes

I voted for the Sganhai Tower, which it's neat to see is in the lead right now. It might be the Ping An IFC but the construction on that is iffy and who knows if it'll ever get built to the original, gold, 2100 foot design.

Shanghai Tower, I'm all in! Ping An IFC, go to hell! Haha.

(Too bad none of the upcoming Chongqing supertall projects were on the list)
