NOMINATE: Ugliest skyscrapers

It's time for another round of nomination for our next One on One tournament. This thread has been discussing ugly skyscrapers for a while, and I figured I'd would be about time to figure out which one is the ugliest of them all.

One rule: you can nominate up to 3 skyscrapers but each one must be from a different city. Feel free to post images along your choices.

Happy nominating!

I don't understand - we will choose the best (most beautiful) among ugly or the ugliest?
