Use this thread to name your three candidates for the official title of 'Best Lit Skyscraper'. This thread is for nominations only, just put down the three you think are the best lit. These must be existing or topped out buildings. Do not use this thread for discussions. Feel free to start a new thread in this forum to promote and discuss your favorites.
