Why wasn't central plaza a choice? That is a really cool looking building.

nevertheless, my vote goes to BOC

Two International Finance Center
one of the best skyscrapers in the world, and the best in HH

2IFC I don't get the support for the BOC. I've seen this building in person and have never cared for it. And it almost disappears in shots of the HK skyline. I've always felt that that long, sloping lower roof was rather ugly, while that rest of the building was ok. But most people seem to really like it. To each their own.

BOC by far. Not only is it the best looking, but it was Asia's first supertall skyscraper. Call me a nutjob, but I don't find the others on the list too appealing (aside from 2IFC's monstrous height, of course).
