How can I vote?
I also nominate Al-Hamra Tower. It has unique design and it stands out.

This isn't the contest. You can't vote.
You can only nominate towers, so they will appear in the contest.

Hopefully the picture shows up, but my first nomination goes to United Tower in Kuwait City!


My second nomination goes to Heron Tower ( which was finished in 2011 ), and my third goes to Reflections at Keppel Bay. Remember guys that buildings like Kingkey 100 and Al Hamra automatically qualify so there is no need to keep nominating them

Using the SkycsraperCity definition of a skyscraper as a building over 200m, I'd have to say:

1 - Northeast Asia Trade Tower - Incheon
2 - Lvgem Tower - Shenzhen
3 - 8 Spruce Street - New York

EDIT: I didn't check if these didn't need nominating, these are just the 3 I like best.
