This thread is way too full of americans voting for 1wtc or chinese voting for a chinese building!

As a neutral on this forum, I must say that World Lotte Tower, The Diamond and Federation Tower are the best among the choices here. Although The Shard, Kingdom Tower and Burj Khalifa deserves to be on the list too!

Bannor- whilst I completely agree with you on the point of people taking bias, I would say its a minority. Most people are just naming their favorite building under construction, which is an opinion!


Secondly- I thought (I may be wrong) this is for UNDER CONSTRUCTION scrapers, the Burj is complete as is the Shard. I don't know about Kingdom Tower, but personally I don't think its gonna happen.
