SwissRe topped out in November 2002, but the building wasn't 100% finished until April 2004.

Well, it is clear which one gets the booby prize: Triumph Palace, Moscow. It should be named Travesty Tower. What a clunker!
World Tower, Sydney, is better than average, as is its companion, Latitude Tower. Time-Warner is impressive; I don't know Goldman Sachs.
With a small reservation, Swiss Re it is.

You forgot to tell where Sparrow hills are, Moscow or Kiev?

It is very confusing with Swiss Re. How can it be the winner in 2003 on Emporis and 2004 on skyscrapercity? What is the official date for completion?
