He could have made a thread where people can put their three best towers with the roof, and according to that he could make a poll with the most nominated ones.

The ones in Atlanta and Charlotte are very good for modern buildings.

Williams Tower in Houston, truly magnificent and brilliantly proportioned, you need to view from a few blocks away to appreciate the scale & proportions of the roof top, always in my top 5 scrapers, Just love it.

Chrysler's gonna win this one, spires down!
But I also gave love to Elite Residence of Dubai, that crown's got such a whimsical fairy tale look to it.
If One Astor Plaza and The Tower of Dubai had been on the list I would have given some to them too.
