US Bank Tower - LA.

Followed by OUB, Singapore.

Personally, I don't understand why the Seattle scraper is in this vote, or the Seoul one for that matter, and Philly's tower just appears to be a modern translation - and a cheap imitation - of the Chrysler. But hey, that's just IMHO!

One Liberty Place, Philadelphia
it is one of my FAVORITE skyscraper, hence the avatar

BoA Seattle is another of my favorites though, so it would be my choice for runner up

I admire Seattle's BoA and the others on the list, but I think One Liberty will have the longest-lasting appeal. It puts a modern twist on classic form that will never go out of style.

All are nice but the BoA is best, followed by Liberty Place, OUB, Library Tower, KTL.
