40 years ago in Minneapolis, Phillip Johnson's IDS Tower was the undisputed boss:




Today, it's harder to pick one. But Pelli's Wells Fargo Tower is the boss at night with it's intense lighting:




The 3rd big boss is Pei's Capella Tower (aka 225 South Sixth):

I actually think the boss of the skyline in Brussels is either the Palace of Justice or the Tour du Midi...

The Empire State Building is still The Boss in NYC, thanks to all the unobstructed views of it.

In Rotterdam, it's this one when seen from the north:

However, from the south it is barely visible. Here this cluster dominates:

In Makati CBD, It's hard to find any particular skyscraper to be considered as the BOSS, because it is pretty dense with buildings with almost of the same height. (cluster)


Maybe when construction of Discovery Primea / 68 Floors had completed, it could be the BOSS of Skyscraper within Makati area

There isn't tower at La Défense who can play in the same game. Maybe Hermitage, but in my heart, and in the Parisian heart, Eiffel Tower will remain the boss.
It's funny, because when it was built the entire city complained it just an ugly, monstrous steel turd.

What dominates our skyline is the Inco Superstack, she's such a beautiful, freestanding beast of the sky.

I already mentioned earlier it's The PBCom Tower! Though Discovery Primea can bring in some competition that is if the final height is taller.

In massive, sprawling Des Moines, Iowa, "801 Grand" is visible from many miles outside of the city.

They don't exist anymore, but none the less I feel they dominated Downtown Manhattan quite impressively.
