Shanghai WFC, Trump Chicago, Beijing WTC, Kingdom Center and NY Times Tower are my faves. The rest are a bit ugly or uninteresting to me.

My favourite 2000s tower of all time is Trump World Tower (2001)


A good one you missed is (I hate spelling this...) Naberezhnaya Tower (2007)

You should have included AVAZ TWIST TOWER in Sarajevo- look pretty badass


However, the scale of it is minute compared to Taipei and others

It finished in the 2000's but opened just a few days after.

I voted for Almas and The Address- some people love to pick on Dubai, but those skyscrapers are awesome, and would be just as at home in NYC, San Francisco, or Toronto.

I hope none of those cities ever fall victim to such poor architecture and cheap materials.

I rather like The Address- it's like a 21st century interpretation of Art Deco. And Almas is just cool, I love that podium!

Shanghai world financial center, 2IFC Hong Kong and Nina towers (also Hong Kong).
I agree that Trump world should be in the poll as the perfect box design.
