Wow the Miglin Beitler Skyneedle is just.. beautiful. Why was this not built?!! I'd have to say that's my top nomination.

2. Palace of the Soviets (I'm not really for communism or Soviet Union, but you can't deny the building is pretty impressive)

3. Crystal Island

I would have liked Palace of the Soviets if it didn't have that giant Lenin statue on top.

This was photoshopped into the Boston skyline during the phase where Boston had proposed a 1000' tower at Winthrop Square. A few different other supertalls were superimposed in there just to see how they would look. I am nominating Signature Tower as one of my 3. (although secretly I was jealous and did not think it belonged in Nashville, especially since it was taller than my city's tallest...)

2. Boylston Square in Boston. Would have been the 3rd tallest and extended the skyline past the Prudential Center. Bitter loss. (quoted from archboston) http://www.archboston.com/community/...5480#post55480
