BOA in Seattle of course... so unique, i've never seen any other tower like this...
runner up: Liberty Place
Honestly OUB is not my fav 80's Skyscraper of Singapore. To me it is the IBM Tower...
but on this list it is my #3
#4: US Bank in LA
#5: KTC

My vote is for Seattle's Bank of America Building. It's reminds me of my preference of females - sleek and curvy. One Liberty Place is a close second.

The architecture of BOA is crazy. It definitely looks like a scraper ahead of its time. That's for being built in the 80's.

I'm surprised the US Bank Tower is in last place. I thought it would have been more popular.

LIBERTY ONE CC Philly BABY!!!!

It could be a tad skinnier or a tad taller tho. Love the Bank of America bldg. in Seattle, too.. but it is a killer for those OCD people who need symmetry in a building.

That's a hard one to decide on. I've been inside BOA Seattle, and One liberty Place in Philly. I love them both plus the US Bank Tower in L.A.
